Diet Coke & Nails Inc Blogger Collaboration

Recently my some of my fellow bloggers and I were sent a lovely package from Diet Coke containing the four amazing new shades of Nails Inc Nail Polish from their recent collaboration, along with a retro style glass bottle of Diet Coke and a great selection of gems and rhinestones to decorate it with!

I got going with the rhinestones and pearls, finishing it off adding a few dots between the gems with the 'Caramel' nail polish, and using all four shades and a flower stencil to decorate around the Diet Coke label. I used to study art so the opportunity to get crafty after so long really made my Saturday night!

Now, when I think of a Coke bottle, even glass ones I imagine most of it being clear so I can see what's inside, so it was slightly off putting to discover that my bottle was completely silver. I soon got the bottle looking vaguely normal with a little (!) bit of black permanent marker, so thats what happened when you noticed tat the bottle looks a little different!

Also, on a side note how cool is the retro bottle cap? I obsessed about that for quite a while!

(left to right: two coats of heather grey, caramel, denim, plum)

As for the colours, they're all really nice, but I think Plum is going to be my wear now colour, and Heather Grey, the nicest in my opinion will become my go to colour in the Spring/ early Summer! I'll also wear the Denim for one offs, but the Caramel will make a great everyday neutral. 

These shades are all exclusive to Diet Coke, so to get your hands on them all you need to do is buy 2 500ml bottles of Diet Coke in selected Boots stores!


  1. Love what you did with the bottle. Looks so cool. You decorateed it so well.
    Also love the nail colours. I defintiely need more nail polishes. The blue looks really good.

  2. Suppose I'll have to make a trip to boots then! X

  5. What a fun thing to do! Although I boycott anything Coca-cola related... haha. I love the nail colors except for the blue!


  6. Wow I am jealous! I had to buy 8 bottles of Diet Coke to get the polishes! Haha

  7. I walked into Boots prepared to buy a bottle of Diet Coke and was quite a bit happy that they did this offer! I got Heather Grey because I think it's probably more of an everyday colour for me... Absolutely love the decorated Coke bottle too!
