Okay, BeautyStat beautynistas (nail fans in particular), stay with me, because I have a lot to cover when talking about Nails Inc. London Autumn/Winter 2013 collections…
The Formula X nail collection from Sephora is launching a 200 nail polish line containing Nail Polish Colors, Metallic, Holographic, Neon, Neutral, Glitter Finishes. See PREVIEW PHOTOS —> HERE!
I shall start with the 6-piece Autumn Winter Collection ($25.00) launching next month in Sephora. It contains limited-edition mini shades that were inspired by the latest catwalk trends.
The glossy violet hues and rich toffees that were seen at Victoria Beckham’s runway inspired Nails Inc. London to create Old Bond Street – an electric violet and Oxford Street – a rich toffee color, while the deep wine and grape shades from Mulberry and Christopher Kane have inspired Regent Street – a deep cerise as well as St. Martin’s Lane – a glossy grape.

Lastly are George Street, which is a delicate mink and Kensington Place – an iridescent nude. The whole set is wearable to me and I fell for Kensington Place immediately as its iridescence caught me off guard.
Foil Effect Polish ($11.00 each) captures the metallic trend wonderfully well with its new shades: Chelsea Bridge Road (sampled/pictured), South Kensington and Kings Road. I am a huge fan of metallic foils and only one coat was needed for an overall foil shine.

Foil Effect Polish will be released next month and has been created using a brand new formula that allows the foil pigments to be applied flawlessly. They actually look more like a nail transfer than a polish. Amazing! Prada, Burberry and Balmain were among the designers which featured this exciting trend at their shows. Available next month at Sephora.
Modern Art Polish ($11.00 each) captures a Jackson Pollack feel when applied to the nails, and can be worn alone or over your favorite Nails Inc. London color.
Modern Art Polish features multiple particle sizes and colors that are blended in a new base color that allows for a semi-matte, high fashion finish. It was designed to provide an edgy, full coverage finish; I found them intriguing as each nail looks different and unique! Available next month at Sephora.
GALAXY Polish ($11.00 each) is a collection that blends iridescent pearl and crushed foil to create an out of this world texture and look. Colors available are Westminster Bridge Road, Trafalgar Crescent, Knightsbridge Road and Buckingham Court (samples/pictured). Available next month at Sephora.
GEL EFFECT Polish ($14 each) is a brand new collection offering four Autumn/Winter 2013 colors that were created with a new gel effect formula. No UV lamp is needed!
They created another technology that allows for the ultra-glossy finish that has previously only been obtained through a gel manicure service. Available in Porchester Square, Kensington High Street (sampled/pictured), St. James and Bond Street, their caps make it easy to match the color of the polish.

BLING IT ON Crystaline Nails ($25.00 each) will launch in October 2013 and offers a wide variety of PRESS ON NAILS. Each set contains 24 nails in 12 different sizes, and all have a unique nail design specifically crafted by the technicians in their own labs in London.
I saw a peek at them and they are absolutely mind-blowing! The sets include nail glue for long-wearing, yet, you can also apply them with the provided sticky tabs so you can reuse the nails. Available in Nude And Crystals, Stained Glass, Black Leather Weave, Black And Blue and Quilted Nails — all are on-trend and unique.
BLING IT ON Glitterball ($22.50), also launching in October 2013, will create show-stopping, glitter-encrusted nails that allow for a dramatic effect. This brand-new collection includes a Bling It On Glitter Pot, full-size Baker Street polish (a bestseller in cobalt blue), Dusting Brush and an Application Tray. The overall look is glitter gone wild!
Hampstead Court, Chelsea Passage, Belgravia Place
FIBRE OPTIC Polish ($11.00 each; launching in October 2013) is made of tiny, holographic fibre optic particles that when blended creates a dramatic look that is perfect for any party.
I used Chelsea Passage over a Foil to create a psychedelic look that I can stare at for days on end. The other colors available in October are Mayfair Mews, Belgravia Place and Hampstead Court. The way the light deflects off of these fibres are eye-catching — literally!
Snowflake EFFECT Polish ($11.00) is launching in October 2013 and is a limited-edition shade that gives nails a special effect to either wear over your favorite shade or by itself. Nails Inc. recommends using it over Foil Effect Polish using 1-2 coats.
Inspired by the cool, crisp looks at Chanel, Celine and Alexander Wang, this could bring the illusion of a holiday wherever you go. The Snowflake EFFECT Polish features different sized glitter and sequin particles that create an illusion of fallen snow on the nails. So fun for the holidays!
CHRISTMAS CRACKERS ($38.00 worth over $60.00) contain a full-size nail polish and a fashion quote! Colors available are Mayfair Mews (blue Fibre Optic Polish), Baker Street (cobalt blue polish), Marylebone Lane (red full coverage glitter polish), King’s Road (rose gold Foil Effect Polish) and Trafalgar Crescent (silver Galaxy Polish).
Last, but certainly not least, is the NAIL POLISH DIARY ($58.00 worth $118.00; pictured) which contains a different mini nail shade per month. This set features best sellers, new trend shades and also never-before-seen Special Effect shades.
