Question question about layering

okay so a few issues i want to address: vertical lines/peeling and infusing moisture in my nails AND i want to do some pretty christmas inspired nails so....

my question is, what order should i apply the following products before i do color and my quick dry coat? please tell me if you think i should leave something out completely

orly bonder rubberized basecoat for a basecoat

essie feed me for moisture

nail aid peeling nails or nail aid instant wrap for my peeling nail issues

i know these are potentially a lot of treatments (and a base) but i want health nails under what i'm doing so what order should i apply any or all of the above??

I'd do the Essie, then the Nail Aid, then the base coat.

A jelly sandwich of Zoya Frida and China Glaze Fairy Dust. I love the Zoya scattered holos in their Christmas 2012 line, so I thought I'd make my own.

RCC- I love your Xmas trees. I'll probably steal your dotty tree. I'd steal your swoopy paint tree, but I don't think I have the skills.

Nynaeve- That jelly sandwich is so gorgeous!

My evolving stamped manicure. Pic 1- I added Zoya Noel to most of the fingers. I liked that much better. Pic 2- I added a coat of the NYC matte top coat. I don't think it mattifies as well as the Hard Candy matte top coat. Meh. Pic 3- I read somewhere on the internets that Wet n Wild Gray's Anatomy looks better layered over teal. Since Noel is teal adjacent, I thought I'd try it out before removing the polish. I added 2 coats and liked it, so I decided to wear it for a day or two. A teal(ish) base for Gray's Anatomy really brings out the pretty duo chrome goodness that is in the bottle but doesn't show up as well on the nail with Gray's alone. You can see the color shift on the middle finger and thumb in the pic.

The swoop was the easiest and the dots were the hardest. Lol.

MY Christmas Nail polish I made for a few friends and family members. The white glitter one is called snowball fight and my niece has it on for her mani this week I posted pictures on my facebook page and a few of my friends have now asked to buy them too so I will be a bit busy getting their orders done for them.

Do you follow any blogs or FB pages of all the indie polish makers out there? I just wondered. Nice polishes! Love the snowball fight!

Test 1,2

Tried this to see if I like the look (which is why it's only on one nail), but I think it looks like a strawberry

My phone camera is highly ****ty.

Found!

Revlon Firefox Matte Suede! So happy and I cannot wait to use it. Apparently I skipped over it last night because I was so determined to not spend any money in the pharmacy.

I now have 18 nail polish colours. I started the semester with 4

I am on a no-buy until February of next year.

Unless it's something like the Spiderman or Bond Collection....or for charity

Okay. Some red for Christmas. Essie Size Matters with Essie As Gold As It Gets on the ring fingers.

Zoya Jade. It is so pretty and sparkly in person, but it never looks as pretty in pictures. It is similar to China Glaze Ruby Pumps.

So many reds and greens!!

I decided against the "strawberry nail polish" and went with this instead.

Avon Licorice and Kleancolour's Holiday Jingle.

One nail chipped after getting caught it a zipper so they'll be off soon and I can try Firefox. I hope I can get to do a candy cane now that I own some white polish.
