Double Appliqués - Incoco + Cover Girl

I picked up a Covergirl set that had Hunger Games nail strips and a polish. I wasn't sure at first how I wanted to wear the strips since the background of them are clear. Then I found a misplaced set of Incoco strips I had. Since they were kind of plain, and we all know how allergic I am to plain manis, I thought I'd see how the two appliqués looked together!

The Incoco strips, Sweet Sangria, applied just fine. They are thin and stretchy. The Covergirl ones, Tawny Flame, are more like stickers. They were a bit thicker and harder to get all the creases and bubbles out of.

Overall, I thought these looked pretty neat together. The Covergirl ones on top weren't as resistant as normal strips, though, and wore away pretty easily after about 24 hours. Luckily, with the base being clear, it wasn't really noticeable, and the mani still looked fine until I started getting tip wear on the Incoco strips.
