Nails Inc. Porchester Place Nail Lacquer ($9.50 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright tangerine.” It’s a vibrant orange with a hint of peach, and it has a cream finish. The hue is softer than shades like Illamasqua Gamma and SpaRitual Solaris.

The polish applied opaque in two coats, and it had nice consistency that wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it flowed evenly across the nail without pooling around the sides. There was no bubbling or streaking during application either. So far, I’ve had good luck with Nails Inc.’s formula; it wears a week with minor tip wear and no chipping. This is standard for me (I couldn’t tell you a formula that does chip on me other than more finicky finishes like mattes without a top coat!), though.

Why on earth is Nails Inc, a UK based brand, $9.50 in the US when we have to pay £11 over here?! Not aimed at you Christine, but whoever sets these ludicrous prices. I know the Aussies get it worse with price increases, but when it’s a UK brand I would expect it to be cheapest in the UK, not double the US price.

Part of it may simply be that they’re at Sephora – I know that Sephora, as a major retailer, has a lot of power and can influence price points.

You have a VAT and we don’t. If you look at the difference in price between the US and England it is exactly the value of your VAT, which is added into the price automatically, unlike our sales tax, which is added as a percentage as the sale is rung up, depending on the local state and municipality in which you buy the product. That is the problem with Europe’s VATs – they are stealth taxes, much higher than the sales taxes we pay in the US – you aren’t even aware that they are taking 14-20 percent of the money out of your pocket whenever you buy anything!

I was wondering that too. It’s the same with Illamasqua – actually that makes even less sense because it’s made here in Aus but apparently it’s cheaper to ship it to the US and then ship it back than keep it in the country. And I’m hesitant to order because their website is based in the UK where it’s far more expensive! I wish brands would explain why they charge some customers more without the usual ‘cost of shipping’ crap.

I guess some of it must be the size of the market, both Australia and the UK just don’t hold the power that the size of the US market does. I think tax plays a part too, I know the tax here is higher than it is in the US so maybe that’s the case for Aus too?

I’m sure some of the price range is just because they can though 🙁

From what I heard – a lot of it can be regulatory, whether it’s additional testing, import taxes, fees, etc. I doubt most brands want to outprice their customer base. Like NYX is cheap in U.S., but it gets rather pricey outside of the U.S., which isn’t really true to the brand, you know? You could see luxury brands not necessarily caring or using it as an excuse, but some more affordable brands can skyrocket in prices elsewhere!

I have Nails Inc. Warwick Way as well as The Thames. While I really like the colors and haven’t had any issues with application, I notice that Warwick Way separates (or something) and I get a LOT of top coat yellowing pretty quickly, which has completely turned me off of the shade. It even spreads and affects the other colors if I use it for nail art! just a warning, I really wish I liked it more, they have such a great shade selection!

Amazed art the price in the US as we pay £11 ere in the UK. Nails Inc are my favourite nail polish, their range of colours is amazing and they don’t chip on me as other brands seem to do. My favourite at the minute are their magnetic polishes. The look you get with them is amazing.

Hi !!
I was wondering, obviously you wear nail polish all the time so my question is how do keep your nails from getting yellow-ish (because that’s what happens to me when I wear nail polish consistently ) ?
