The Diet Coke and Nails Inc Challenge (With Lots Of Unsolicited Help!)


I recently received a email which talked about a bottle of Diet Coke, some gorgeous Nails Inc polishes and a selection of gems and stickers, otherwise known as the Diet Coke Catwalk Collection customisation kit.

As I am a fan of both Diet Coke and Nails Inc, I thought ‘what fun!’ and before long a lovely box of goodies     arrived.

And someone was very interested. That someone was an eight year boy who just loves to get stuck in. However, I managed to distract him away from it and put it away in a safe and secret place.

Nothing more was said and today when I had a quiet moment I thought I would have a little go at decorating the bottle. But no sooner had I got the kit out, in walks eight year old boy who was horrified that I might have done it without him.

He disappeared and returned immediately with what he termed ‘a blueprint’.

The Blueprint!

And it was then that I realised that this was no longer my project, and in fact, never had been!

Before he totally takes over, I better tell you what the actual point of the exercise is. It’s for me to tell you about the new range called The Catwalk Collection from diet Coke and Nails Inc which includes four gorgeous limited edition colours; Denim, Caramel, Plum and Heather Grey, worth £11 RRP each. 

They’re free when you pick up just two 500ml bottles of diet Coke at selected Boots stores nationwide from 12th January. A brilliant offer! And here are the colours showcased by my little helper. (Who am I kidding?! I was his helper!!)

So he set to work….


And before long we had this:

Diet Coke and Nails Inc Fusion!

He told me that although he had used his ‘blueprint’, he had made some ‘modifications’ (!!!) along the way. I concentrated on keeping a straight face. This was serious business after all.

And on this special occasion, as he feels he worked so hard, eight year old has allowed me to include a photo of him in the blog. And here he is modelling the creation. (It’s the closest he’s going to get to drinking Diet Coke for a good few years!):


What a cutie!! 

Have you managed to take advantage of this brilliant offer yet? Do you love the polishes? I haven’t had a chance to try them yet but I have high hopes.

Can’t wait to hear from you

    Aw, so cute! Also, I just wanted to say how sweet your reply to Smeeeff’s dieting post was – how lovely of you to take so much time replying to such a personal post. The support of the Blogosphere and the Twitterverse (jesus – what do I sound like?!) really touch me sometimes xx
