Nails Inc Royal Arcade

Hi guys! It's almost Friday, woohoo! Last night I tried to go to the food trucks that are around here every Wednesday and there was like a bazillion people there (thank you Grilled Cheese Truck). Usually I like when that truck is there because then the lines for all the other trucks are shorter but last night there were SO many people there that all the lines were long :( What I'm trying to say here is that I didn't get anything...it was sad. To put some salt in the wound the trucks won't be back until the end of August because of the Orange County Fair. Now I need to find something else to do on Wednesday nights haha!

On to polish...today I have an awesome glitter bomb from Nails Inc to show you called Royal Arcade. It's part of their Nail Jewelry collection! Royal Arcade is a bright sapphire blue chunky glitter, there is a whole mix of sizes of glitter in here...everything from big hex glitters to fine glitter. It's a really nice dense glitter, more dense than I was expecting actually! I had no major application issues, I did have to dab this a little bit but that was just be trying to get the glitter exactly where I wanted it. You can definitely wear this on it's own, though I'm sure removal would be a nightmare then...but it sure would be gorgeous! I used 1 coat of Royal Arcade over Nails Inc Black Taxi for the photos below.

I needed a couple coats of top coat to get everything smooth. I wore this combo for 5 days last week and barely had any tip wear when it was time take it off, I am impressed!


Nails Inc. is available in the US at Sephora and Sephora.com, each polish retails for $9.50!


  1. That looks sooo pretty.. Im thinking it would look even better over a blue. Might have to pick this up before its gone.
    Btw the food trucks make me hungry.. Lol

  2. Wow, this is amazing!

  3. So, so lovely, thanks for sharing!

  4. I love it over black; it gives the polish some depth. What kind of topcoat do you use?

  5. Love Love Love this polish!!

    This is stunning on you! Thanks for sharing this.

  7. Heres a quick clean way to remove glitter polish. Dip cotton ball in polish remover place on your nail then wrap your finger in foil. Repeat this for all your nails. once you are done just pull the foil off your fingers. Now you have removed the polish withn no mess.

  8. been lemming this beauty... sooo glad its on sephora now!!

    i loved this nail polish, but taking it out is not so hard.

    I have some glitter polishes of sephora by opi, and I was having a HARD time removing it, but a friend of mine showed me the BEST technique ever.

    1. take a small cwotton (just enough to cover the nail)
    2. immerse it on nail polish remover
    3. tape it around your finger
    4. your finger in foil
    5. wait 3-4 minutes

    hope this helps.

    1. You do realize someone already Said that

  10. Do u ever watch eat st on the cooking channel? Its a show that profiles several different food trucks in various cities every week. It is awesome. Have u ever thought of photographing and posting a blog on your food truck adventures? I would totally read it. P.s. love the glitter!

  11. Man, I just can't get enough of nails inc. All of the jewellery shades are so awesome!

    That looks great! I tried it by itself and it looked great with just two coats, but I'll have to try it over black as well.

  13. i found your blog by accident but maybe you are my food truck soul mate...when you say Orange County do you mean FL? :)
    i am food truck obsessed
    oh and wait, i'm generally not a glitterfan but i actually love these nails

  14. This combination is so lovely.
