How to Buy

In order to purchase Color Street nail polish strips, you must do so through an Independent Stylist. Color Street Stylists care about your experience with them and are always looking to assist with application or ordering. If you receive a defective product, you can easily submit a claim and Color Street will send a replacement.

If you have problems with Incoco nail strips such as a defect, there is no one available to help you. You simply lose out because you can’t return opened product to the store you bought it from.


Color Street provides extra value in the form of an everyday “customer special” Buy 3 Get 1 free. It is a mix and match kind of special that is automatically applied at checkout.

Incoco may be cheaper in price and therefore is made with less attention to detail and quality.

Affiliate Opportunity

One of the biggest differences between Color Street and Incoco is the business/affiliate opportunity. Color Street is exploding in popularity and it’s because of the quality and reliability of the product. We have been featured in multiple magazines such as OK Magazine and Real Simple. And as of August 2021 we have launched into Canada.

Each stylist joins for their own particular reason that is important to them. You can start a side hustle/business or simply kitnap as an affiliate to save on your own purchases.

There is a relatively inexpensive start up cost and you are not required to carry any inventory. Incoco will never have an opportunity like this or pay affiliate income. You can read about the 10 things I wish I knew before joining Color Street to get more details if you’re interested.

There are no guarantees regarding the income from this opportunity. The success or failure of each Stylist, like in any other business, depends upon each Stylists’ skillset and personal effort. Earning levels for independent Stylists are examples and should not be construed as typical or average. Income level achievements are dependent upon the individual stylists business skills, personal ambition, time, commitment, activity, and demographic factors.

Charitable Donations

Even though Color Street and Incoco are part of the same company, when you buy from Color Street you help fund the Color Street Foundation. A few times per year Color Street designs and creates an exclusive nail strip for a specific charity. During that specific month, the foundation donates around $100,000 to charitable organization(s) for that particular cause. You can find the most updated list of planned foundations here.

Incoco does not donate any proceeds from their products.
