To me, if something is "nearly always" it is something that happens 70/80/90/99 % of the time. In English we use phrases and words to describe this. Some of these are "most of the time", "all of the time", "regularly", "commonly", "typically", "repeatedly", "frequently" and "usually" for some examples. All of the above words can be used as a substitute for "nearly always"

"just about always" and "not quite always" are fairly common in spoken English, but not in written English. When having a discussion and someone wants to ridicule another person I have also heard "practically always".
