As base color I used The Polish Well Wrath, a ruby red jelly with small black hexes, red hexes in two sizes plus red squares (or are they gold and just look red through the jelly base? Hard to tell). Application was easy, no issues to report, I used three coats for opacity and finished with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.
For my accent nail I added a Christmas Tree using P2 Opulent, a dark, blackened green texture polish, and some striping tape (plus OPI Honey Ryder and a dotting tool for the "star" on top of the tree). These striping tape Christmas trees have been part of Christmas manis all over the internet for quite some time now, so I can't tell you who invented it (but I can tell you it wasn't me).
At the moment, apparently there's no shop where The Polish Well polishes are available. If you follow The Polish Well Blog, Mich, the creator, announces pre-sales of her polishes, that's how I got mine.
