I figure the easiest way is doing this by train.
Take a TGV service from Nice to Paris, this will take just over 5 hours but no need to go to and from the aiport, no advance check-in, etc.
From Paris take the Thalys service to Amsterdam (check whether this is possible with a Eurail pass). From Amsterdam take a cheap flight to London on easyJet or another carrier.
The Eurail pass will costs around 270 USD, there's no way you will find an airtickt NCE-PAR-AMS for this amount of money.
Ryanair only works when you have a car or don't mind ending up travveling long distances to and fromt the cities mentioned above.
You can try easyJet for the NCE-PAR segment and book a single ticket for the Thalys Paris-Amsterdam (no Eurail pass needed) then fly AMS-LON on easyJet.
