Nails Of The Day - Nails Inc Diet Coke - London

Like them or loathe them nude nails are here to stay - From the true nude mannequin hands look to beiges, taupes, and minks - the nude, neutral or barely there nail is surely on it's way to becoming as classic a look as a red nail or as a French manicure.

Although this is pretty rare colour I thought that it was one that was worth showing you for the reason be that it's not that original and it should be pretty easy to dupe.

Nails Inc Diet Coke in London, as the name would suggest is a collaboration between British nail giant, Nails Inc and the famous fizzy drink.  The promotion is exclusive to Boots, and you get a free full size, exclusive Nails Inc polish when you buy 2, 500ml bottle of Diet Coke. There are 4 shades to choose from and each one is named after one of the fashion capitals of the world.

As I say the one I went for is London and it's one of the super wearable nude beige, mink shades. Nails Inc polishes can be a little bit inconsistent on occasions but this one was pretty decent.

With careful application you could probably get away with one coat, the coverage really is that good, but as per usual I went for two.

It has a nice glossy, even finish, and even without a good top coat, the wear time was still decent, with only minimal tip wear

If you're a Nails Inc collector you may still be able to track this polish down via some internet auction sites like ebay but it's more than likely that it's gone for good. If you like this type of colour though, you can find similar shades at all price points by brands such as Rimmel, Models Own, and Barry M. Personally though my own particular favourite polishes in this colour family, are Porchester Square also by Nails Inc, and Supermodel by manicurist to the stars Leighton Denny, 2 polishes that are steadily becoming classic in their own right. Are you a fan of nude beige nails? Let me in the comments x


  1. I must go to boots more often, I always miss the great deals only going once a month.
