Grab A Diet Coke

Diet Coke Nails

Diet Coke is my go to soda.  I probably drink it the most since I always find myself on a diet, but I do love the flavor of it.  On these hot summer days, a cool refreshing Diet Coke does wonders.  To commemorate my love, I decided to paint Diet Coke nails. #nailart

Paint and Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Butter London - Diamond Geezer
Other Supplies:
  • Red and black acrylic paint
  • Nail brush
  • Dotting tool
  • Base and top coats

I used acrylic paint for the lettering and details, but you could use regular polish too.  I like acrylic paint because it is easier to do lettering with it.  It doesn't get quite as tacky when it is drying, so it is a bit easier to control.  Also, the paint has better coverage than the red polishes I have, so one pass with the paint was enough.  To create this look:
  1. Apply a base color.  I'm using Diamond Geezer by Butter London.  The Diet Coke can is sliver, so this is a great background color.
  2. Paint the "Diet Coke" lettering.  Using a small nail brush, paint "Coke" in red.  Paint it big enough that it covers the length of your nail.  It should be a little off center because "Diet" is going to go above it, so be sure to leave space.  Then paint "Diet" with black paint.  You can look at a Diet Coke can for a reference on how the logo looks.
  3. Decorate the rest of the nails using red paint and a nail brush or dotting tool.  On one nail, I did the red swirl design you see on the can.  The rest I just made different patterns of dots and lines.
