While Nails Inc. might not be the most well-known nail polish brand in the industry, it’s most certainly one of the best—in terms of ahead-of-the-curb, on-trend colors, ultra-clean formula options, and overall application experience (i.e. long-lasting, chip-free wear, high-shine, etc.). Founded by Thea Green MBE back in 1999, Nails Inc. has long been, and is still, regarded as a leading and award-winning, British beauty brand—renowned for its innovation and trend-led premium color quality in addition to splashy and notable celebrity collaborations à la Alexa Chung, Victoria Beckham, Diane Von Furstenberg, and the list goes on.
Therefore, it’s really no surprise that despite the fact that I own about 500 bottles of nail polish, my curated collection of Nails Inc. bottles is one of my most-revisited. I look forward to adding fresh new shades to it every season, but I also have best-of-the-best standbys that I’ve been coming back to again and again for years. (Like, since college!) So, as an ode to the brand that’s always raising the bar in the nail space, I’m listing the top 10 best Nails Inc. nail polishes of all time (plus the runners up in each color category) just below. What’s more, they range from $9 to $15, so there’s no need to feel guilty about snapping up all of your favorites. Keep scrolling!
