Diet Coke x Nails Inc Review


I forgot to post about this amazing offer when I was under a pile of dissertation notes, but as far as I know it is still available at Boots stores until stocks last!



Basically, when you buy two bottles of Diet Coke at Boots, you can choose a free shade of Nails Inc 'Catwalk Collection' polish worth £11. There are four shades to choose from; Perfect Plum, Cool Caramel, Delicious Denim and Heavenly Heather Grey.

Diet Coke kindly sent me a set to try. Scroll down for the gory details!





My favourite is the Denim shade. A creamy one-coat wonder, and a really unusual shade. Utterly lovely!

Heather Grey is another unusual shade. I don't think I've seen anything quite like it! I really liked it, and it's another one-coater.

Perfect Plum is a lovely burgundy red shade. It required two coats and I did get in a bit of a mess applying this one. I always get in a mess with reds, but after a clean up session, it looked fine.

Cool Caramel was a beigey-nude shade which looked best after two coats.

The Verdict: All of the shades lasted a good few days before chipping (using a Nails Inc basecoat and Seche Vite topcoat) and generally applied smoothly. I think the shades are lovely, and at essentially a couple of quid a bottle, this is an amazing deal, so let's not be fussy!

Have any of you picked up any of the Catwalk Collection yet? Which is your fave?

Off out with my Topshop buds now. Very annoyed that I've put 2lbs on in the past couple of days and am now about to pile a load of alcohol calories on top! Will have to be extra super good as of tomorrow!

Hope you've all had a lovely week so far! ♥

  1. I love the caramel one! I don't like diet coke but I think I'll have to go and pick some up just for the offer!

  2. I've been wearing the denim one constantly for the last two weeks, I love it, I agree it's a really unusual shade of blue which you don't usually find.

    There was only blue and red available every time I stopped by so I didn't know what the other two colours were but they're both gorgeous, hopefully I'll be able to grab them at some point!

  3. I got Heather Grey when I saw this offer. I love itttt! It seems to change shade depending on what kind of light you see it under :-) That might just be me going a bit crazy, but hey ho!x

  12. Great tip Gem! I liked the pale creamy one, but I thought it would be like a white cream, but it looks more like toffee colour, so I'm not sure.. I guess I'll just have to buy some coke to find out :)

  13. I really want all these colours! I don't particularly like Coke that much but I'm gonna have to get over it and buy at least a dozen bottles cause I need these in my life haha!

  16. I love Nails Inc! It's one of the fastest-drying, longest-wearing polishes in my arsenal. The blue is definitely awesome, and I love the heather grey too!

  19. Nails Inc is my favourite nail polish brand. I've got a gorgeous dark purple colour from them that I wear ALL the time. It's running out and I was heartbroken...I think I'm going to have to nip out to Boots and replace it with Perfect Plum.

    Thanks for letting me now :)

  20. I had to buy six bottles of Diet Coke but I now have 3 of the 4 polishes. I love the Heather Grey one, it reminds me of Starburst sweets.

  21. I wish Nails Inc decided to send me a set too! I don't drink Diet Coke, so I really would rather not buy it... I don't know why I'm so opposed to buying it, it's not like I'd have to drink it!

    I have literally JUST that second, as I was typing that, remembered that I got a Boots gift card from my Nan for Christmas - maybe her £10 could be put towards some lovely new nail varnish for moi :)
