I have bought varnish from nails inc in the past and wasn't impressed with the quality, it went on very thin and bumpy. But I gave them the benefit of the doubt when I was in bluewater the other day and decided to treat myself to a full set despite the £50 price tag. My hubby quipped that I had better get a latte with that and in hindsight, he is so right! I'm not sure what the doubling in price was supposed to entail...I've had much better full sets on the high street and I didn't get any extras at ni!!

Some people love it. I think it's ok - I really like their colours, but I do find it very hard to apply compared to OPI and Jessica which are my faves. If I have a whole evening to waste carefully apply it, Nails Inc is good, but that's a bit pointless really. Better things to do with a night wine

Hi I agree, nails inc is definately overpriced, I have had their nail varnish in the past, and it was nothing special. I also think the lady who appears on qvc presenting nails inc is vile, I think her name is Helen.

Their nail varnish is over priced IMO. Opi much better

Yes, I hate the texture, it seems to streak when I use it although I did have a Nails Inc manicure once which presumably used their products and was lovely.

I prefer OPI, actually, I even prefer Rimmel over Nails Inc!

For a mates 40th last month we all went out for a pedicure and a meal after. The nail varnish i chose was a purple OPI one called "Overexposed at South Beach. I only took it off the Sunday just gone because my toenails had grown. It hadnt chipped AT ALL.
By the way im not gross lol. It was applied right at the end of last month.

For the past couple of Christmases Glamour magazine has given away a free Nails Inc varnish with their December issue. Now i know why.

I like it and have found that it goes the distance. Jessica is good too.
