If the gorgeous array of shades wasn’t enough to sway you towards Nails Inc, these handy bottle hacks will.
Nails inc is an award-winning nail brand known for its luxury nail bars & beautiful polish colours that launched over 20 years ago by founder, Thea Green. They are stocked in all major luxury department stores, such as Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, and Fenwick. You can also find them at your favourite beauty stores online too, including insider beauty destination Sephora.
Their cool reputation is not only built on their ability to develop stunning of-the-moment-shades (and then give them witty names), but also on their exclusive product collaborations with the likes of Victoria Beckham, Diane Von Furstenberg and Alexa Chung.
Customers love that their products are 100% Cruelty-Free, and vegetarian friendly (they're not vegan friendly yet but are working towards it apparently).
These are all things you might already know about Nails Inc polish. But we recently discovered a few facts that you probably don't know and that will make achieving a professional-looking manicure easy peasy...
3 clever things you didn't know about Nails Inc polish
- Ever wondered why there are two lids? Turns out the top cap has been specially designed to act as a stand. Place your finger into the curved space to create a nifty finger rest, creating an even surface even when you’re on the go. Not to mention minimising the risk of sploshing a wayward blob of polish onto your coffee table.
- The base of the bottle is impressive too, giving you the chance to try your new shade before you buy. Just place your nail under the side of the bottle to see how the colour will look when painted. Clever, eh?
- Not stopping there, Nails Inc patented brush has been ergonomically designed to work with the shape of your nail. Super wide and perfectly flat, it minimises the number of strokes required.

Don't know about you but we suddenly have the urge to indulge in a new polish. So we've rounded up our fave new shades and products.
SHOP NOW: Crystals Made Me Do It Nail Polish Duo, £15
Whether you believe in their healing powers or not, there’s no denying crystals are a huge trend. Infused with real amethyst, the 45 Second Speedy Gloss Top Coat locks in colour, keeping your mani chip free for longer. Layer over Healing Feelings – a soft, shimmering pink made from rose quartz that catches the light beautifully.
As you might have guessed by the name, this pearlescent gold is inspired by all things under the sea. Glistening in the light, one coat gives a subtle wash of colour or build-up to two for a bold gold.
SHOP NOW: Keep It Tonal Nail Polish Set, £22
Gradient nails are big news. Get the look by painting each nail a slightly deeper tone from thumb to pinkie. While co-ordinating your colours can be tricky, this set does the hard work for you, with four perfectly complimenting shades in a very chic array of neutrals.

She caught the magazine bug during a stint as Fashion Editor of her university newspaper alongside her English degree, and hasn’t looked back since. As for the fashion bug, that came as part and parcel of growing up in the 90s, but the less said about that the better!
Jess’ average day in the office is spent researching the latest fashion trends, chatting to industry tastemakers and scouring the internet to bring you this season’s must-buy pieces - as well as advice on how to wear them. Weekends are equally fashion-focused, and Jess has been known to visit no less than five Zara stores in a single day in search of the perfect occasion dress.
The only thing that comes close to a buzz of finally tracking down that much-coveted dress is the joy of discovering a new beauty wonder product or hero ingredient. A beauty obsessive, Jess has tried everything from cryotherapy to chemical peels (minus the Samantha in Sex and The City-worthy redness) and interviewed experts including Jo Malone and Trinny Woodall.
