Nails Inc The Old Vic Collection Swatches!

Good morning! Right now I would probably talk about how fantastical the Bayside/Saves The Day show was last night but I'm writing this before I go to it haha! I found out that Bayside (who I'm mostly going to see) doesn't go on until 10:25pm and I know I'll be waaaaaaay to tired to write a post when I get home. So I'm writing this and scheduling it ahead. I love concerts but when the bands I like don't even go on until that late Grandma Jen starts getting sad about getting up for work at 7am the next day lol!

Anyway, today I have the Old Vic Collection from Nails Inc for you! About a week ago this duo along with 2 others were added to the Sephora website. I hear over in the UK the duo's have a Gossip Girl theme, maybe someone can confirm that for me? I decided to get the Old Vic duo because it has blue flakies, I love blue flakies! Each duo comes with a base polish and a flakie top coat, this one has Black Taxi which is a basic black creme...I didn't take photos of it! I enjoyed the formula of Black Taxi, it was a two coater and dried super shiny! The flakie is called The Old Vic, it is packed with bright blue flakies that have a little bit of a purple duochrome. My camera totally failed at capturing the purple but I promise it's there! I have 1 coat of The Old Vic over Black Taxi for the photos below!

I have some good news here (or maybe some bad news?) This flakie is pretty much an exact dupe of Inglot 204. The only little difference is that the flakies in the Inglot polish seem a little more dense...nothing you couldn't achieve by putting on two coats of The Old Vic. Price wise, I do think the Nails Inc set is a better deal...you get more for your money. The Inglot polish retails for $10 and the bottle is tiny (8ml, for comparison sake a full size China Glaze is 14ml). The Nails Inc Duo retails for $20 and both the flakie and the base polish are a bit bigger (10 ml)

You can pick up the Nails Inc Old Vic Collection on Sephora's website here. It looks like their description is a little messed up for the Old Vic duo...I didn't notice it until I was reading it for this post!

  1. I live in Denmark and i'm planning buying the Gossip Girl duos. As far as description wise I think they are the same, the pictures also seem alike. Kind of weird giving them different names/themes. But anyway it's a really pretty polish, blue flakies <3

  2. Fab post!! That's right, the UK Nails Inc. people have released 3 duos. All related to Gossip Girl. One of them is exactly the same as this, except the piano black polish is called "Serena" and the blue flakie glitter is called "It Girl". This one is my favourite!!! x

  4. LOL! I was just looking at this while placing my order for the Sephora F&F sale! I passed on it (cause I already have Nfu Oh 40, which has more flakies), but I kind of like the sparseness of this one. It doesn't overpower the base color of the polish, which I like sometimes.

  10. Sorry for my ignorance, what is Inglot 204? Does any one know if the Flakey topcoat is available by itself? Dupes for topcoat??

  11. Inglot 204 is a blue flakie, the Nails Inc flakie is only available in the duo.

  13. I love this...thanks for posting it. I had been watching all the great Nails Inc swatching Mischromatics has been collecting but had noticed IMHO, the Nails Inc sold by Sephora were certainly not my favs of all the shade they make - but this one I sure want to get.

  14. I'm so jealous of your concert goings! ahh!
    I saw Saves The Day in 2005 and Warped Tour :)

    I am loving that blue flakie!

  15. The Old Vic is beautiful I only have smoe red/green flakies and am not so crazy about them, blue is great.

  16. DO you have the Donmar overglaze too?  It reminds me of SH hidden treasure.  Wondered if you had done a comparison.  Trying to pare down my cart at Sephora, VIB yippy!  LOL.
