Travel Supermarket Beauty & The Beach 2 Holiday Nails Competition

Hi there my loves. Are you going on holiday this year and stuck for make-up, hair or nail ideas to make you look gorgeous while you are away? Maybe you have some ideas you would like to share with others of your favourite beach to bar looks? Travel Supermarket are running a Beauty & The Beach 2 Competition where you can enter your favourite holiday looks in the make-up, hair or nail categories. With each category you have the chance to win £500. You can enter 1, 2 or 3 categories and an overall winner will win £1,500. I am entering the holiday nails section so here is my entry :)

I first applied one coat of Rimmel Stronger Double Duty Base Coat, followed by two coats of E.L.F. Coral Nail Polish. One coat covered the nails really well, but to make the manicure last longer I added another layer. This colour is so gorgeous and I think a perfect sunshine shade to take you from bright sunny days to hot summer nights. It is coral as the name states, but it has this fantastic golden shimmer running through it to really make the coral shade pop. I wanted to add an aztec/tribal feel to the nails so I used 2 coats of the E.L.F. Black Nail Polish on the middle finger to add a triangle tip and with a clear top coat (unnamed) I painted this around the triangle and added random coloured rhinestones with my tweezers, dropping them on gently and pressing lightly to seal them down. I went over each nail with the clear top coat to seal the whole manicure.

Products Used:

Rimmel Stronger Double Duty Base Coat, £4.15 for 12ml

E.L.F. Coral Nail Polish, $2.00 for 10ml on*

E.L.F. Black Nail Polish**

Clear Top Coat From a 99p Stores Nail Art Set (unnamed)

At Your Fingertips Square/Diamond Rhinestones (green, gold, red, blue & pink)***

*Coral looks like a golden shade now on for £2.50.

**Black is no longer available at There is a black on, but it is part of the E.L.F. Essential 15-Piece Nail Polish Set - Limited Edition for $15.00 and I am not sure if it is the same formula.

***These Rhinestones are no longer available in this style from At Your Fingertips, but add square/diamond rhinestone wheel to your search engine and many colour/style options will pop up.

As the E.L.F. Coral shade is hard to get hold of now I would suggest using a regular coral shade in one coat with a gold shimmer of one coat on top to create the same effect. For the black any black nail polish will work and the rhinestones you should have fun with using the shape and colours you like.
