Diet Coke Nail Polish! (No Cans of Diet Coke Were Harmed in the Production of This Product)

BlogHer Original Post

I love Diet Coke.

Actually, this is a bit of an understatement.

If I could find a way to have all the signs in Times Square flashing, "LORALEE LOVES DIET COKE WITH THE POWER OF A THOUSAND BURNING SUNS!!!!!" it would probably a much more accurate portrayal of how I feel about "imbibing in the dark waters". My blog footer says "Powered by Diet Coke". I have Diet Coke t-shirts, jewelery, art and I even tried to convince the husband to name our last born "Dietcokeicus". Admittedly, this was to illustrate my feelings in response to his inquiry about naming him "Maximus".

(It worked.)

I lasted all of TWO FREAKING DAYS after announcing to the Internet that I was going "cold turkey" to kick my soda habit this week. While I feel embarrassed and lame about it, I also realize that becoming a victim of identity theft and having the front of my car mangled due to a cowardly hit-and-run driver the DAY AFTER giving up Diet Coke (aka--MY BEST FRIEND AND SOUL MATE) would be a little much for anyone that loves it the way I do.

I will attempt to go all clean and pure again...I just need a little time. (Slurp. Guzzle. AAAAHHHHHHH...)


Because my zeal for the bubbly is known by EVERYONE, many people give me Diet Coke products as gifts. While I love the Diet Coke paraphernalia that has been sent to me over the years, much of it really isn't overly useful or something that I can use every day.

And none of it has been what I could call "fashionable".


Diet Coke nail polish

First Karl Lagerfeld splashed some of his signature style over a signature Diet Coke bottle and now Nails Inc. has teamed with Diet Coke (UK) to create four Diet Cokeular nail polish colors.

From the press release:

Now Diet Coke enthusiasts can pretty up and polish their nails in style with "The Diet Coke City Collection", a quad of nail polish colors inspired by some of the hottest fashion cities in the world -- 'London' is a trendy nude color, inspired by Brit passion for cool fashion. 'Paris' is a deep purple, a tribute to the most romantic city in the world and a sunset over the Eiffel Tower. 'Milan' is a fiery Italian red and 'New York' is a vibrant fuchsia pink inspired by the attitude of the city that never sleeps.

If you are in England you can SQUEE! because these gorgeous bottles will be given away free with every purchase of two 500ml bottles of Diet Coke at Boots stores that are purchased until June 30. Those of us not living in the land of Austen and tea and scones can order online at, which has a partnership with the beverage of deliciousness.

Now if only REESE'S Peanut Butter Cups would partner with American Eagle....
