Christmas themed mani. using Lynderella's and Wet 'n Wild.

Good afternoon! How is your day going? It's cold and dreary here, but DH and I have plans to got out tonight. I'm hoping the bad weather will hold off for a few hours. We are going to the Kansas City Country Club Plaza to see the Christmas lights, and eat at the Melting Pot. It's a fondue restaurant, so lots of yummy cheese and chocolate dips. This will be my first time there, and I'm excited! :-) I've wanted to eat there forever!

Anyway, I decided to do Christmas nails today. I started out with Wet 'n Wild Rockin' Rubies, which is part of the Ice Baby Holiday collection. It has fine red glitter with round, hex glitter. The polish was a bit on the thick side, but nothing too bad. I used three coats for full coverage. I had planned on just wearing this color, but then I started messing around with my Lynnderella polishes. I added a coat of Lynnderella I Can Afford It, which is made of of bright green glitter in different shapes and sizes. It also has a few gold and purple glitter pieces through out. I added a bit too much green, and decided it needed more red. So I grabbed another Lynnderella....Ruby Red Ruby. RRR is made up of all red glitter in different shapes and sizes. I am loving this combo, but dreading taking it off! I have on NINE coats of polish! That's including my treatment,base and topcoats.

Here are pics. of the finished mani.

Wet 'n Wild Rockin' Rubies

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you are having a great day! :-)


  1. That looks awesome! I was going to paint my nails something rich and chocolatey, but now I'm inspired to try something festive!!

    What treatment is it that you mention? I'm sure you've posted about it before, but I have missed it.

  2. GLITTER BOMB! Looks great - very festive. :)

  3. WHOA!!! That is insanely awesome and Christmasy. I like it! I do not envy the removing process you will have to go through though lol.

    Oooh I have been to the Melting Pot once. We had a girls out special thing so it was cheese appetizer, martini and desert but OMG it was good. Cheese and Chocolate HOW can you go wrong? HAVE FUN!

  4. MrsMatched...Thank you! :-) The nail treatment I use is nailtiques Formula 2 They have several different formula's for different nail types and problems. I've been using it for almost a year, and it works really well. I switch back and forth between 2 and 2 plus. It's a bit expensive but really does work, and it lasts a long time.

    Megan....Yes, def. glitter bomb!! Thanks! :-)

    turtlechick...HI!!! :-) Thank you so much! Yes, I am NOT looking forward to taking it off. I have a feeling it might make me a little crazy. LOL!
    Yay!! You just made me even more excited about going to the Melting Pot! Cheese and Chocolate are two of my fav. things to eat! I'll have to report back on how it was. I just wish it would stop raining! Ugh. By the way, I got your message and will get back to you soon. Promise. I hope things are going well today. ;-)

  5. Oooh, that will be worth the removal process! Just make yourself a cup of cocoa, put on a lonnnnng holiday CD and take your time!

  6. Jammies....That sounds like a great plan! I just might do that! :-)

  7. OMG....9 coats?!? Yeah, have fun with the removal! lol! Does look awesome though!
