Inque Nails review

As soon as I saw flinty's post about Inque Nails on Polish or Perish, I knew I had to try them. I ordered five sets last Thursday, and they were in my mailbox on Monday.

The first set I tried on was the pink camoflauge and I love them. They're cute, detailed, girly but edgy, and have gotten me four compliments today alone.

Since I have short, wide nails (and hands, thanks, Grandpa!), I got the Medium nails and will probably get the Short nails for my next order. They were easy to apply, although I may have used the blowdryer a little too long, because my fingers felt uncomfortably hot. I used a pair of nail clippers to trim the decals to fit after I'd positioned them on my nails, and that worked like a charm. After the blowdrying and the smoothing steps, I filed with a medium-grit (180) file and got the results you see above.

You can pick up your own set at the Inque website, but I'd recommend getting them soon, before the 5 sets for $30 deal ends!

Polish or Perish is having an Inque design contest, and ya'll are welcome to enter, although I'm pretty sure my designs are the awesomest! ;)

I haven't tried to remove them, but I've been told that the decals should simply peel off the nails and to start with lifting an edge of one nail with either an orange stick or another nail.

The big test for me will come tomorrow night when I do my hourlong workout in the pool. If they can withstand sixty minutes of chlorinated water, I will know it's true love!

Update 2/12/11: The nails lasted four days and two water workouts with just some wrinkling at the tips, and were easy to remove. Love this product!
