Fall Polish Choices

Its time for a blog post. I have a few photos piling up and so here's a few that I have been wearing. Some of these have already been on my Fashion Blog but sometimes the posts on Meadowtree Style get so long that I just don't want to any something else. None of these colors are "just releases" because I was on a polish no buy for about a year. So here we go................

Nubar's Forest. Forest is from their Going Green collection. Unfortunately, Nubar has fallen on hard times and is no longer producing polish. Fortunately, Amazon has an amazing amount of Nubar for sale.


Dollish Polish's The Witching Hour was from the 2016 A Box Indie. I got it from a stash sale on Facebook. Although meant for Halloween, with its green base I love it for Fall in general.


Can I say anymore about a england? I so love any thing Adina makes. This is Briarwood from her Burne-Jones Dream collection.


I have this Nubar on at the moment. It is Vino from their Venetian Glass series. I have the whole set and have decided that this is the month to try to wear at least half of this collection.

This is Surreal Sunset by Fingerpaints which is found at Sally's Beauty and we all probably have one of those near us somewhere. Isn't this a great duochrome. It goes from pink to gold to bronze-amazing!


Sometimes I just have to double up! This Dazed by Cult Nails topped by Laser Jet by Cirque.


And finally, a great one from Rainbow Honey. This is Kawako from their first Yokai collection. Its been around for awhile but I hope they still have it. Their shop is closed until after Christmas.
That's it for this time around-just wanted to share some of the stash with you. I've started buying a few polishes again after taking a year off and just sent my third polish box to a local women's shelter. I do this rather than send bottles into Zoya during their Earth Day sale. I always get a plastic $1 box and make sure I have a new bottle of polish remover and cotton balls to go along with the polishes. 

One of my boxes


That's it for this blog this time around and so take care and enjoy your colors!

A Trio Of Blues

I think most of us wear blue polish year round; robably lighter or darker, depending on the season. 

Here's just three that I have worn lately. My first is Kiko 653 which is part of their Cupcake line. These came out a while back when textured polish was very popular. I have a top coat on in this picture, but you can still see the texture.



This is Kawagebo by Elevation. It is a light blue crelly (half way between a cream and jelly finish) with a very subtle gold shimmer. Elevation Polish's creator Lulu is an outdoor trekker and the majority of her colors are named after geological areas in the world. More importantly, Elevation Polish has proven it's quality and integrity.


Finally, I have Wet by Floss Gloss. This color is luminous light turquoise cream and it gets complements when I wear it. Floss Gloss is what I term a Boutique polish. Floss Gloss is the creative child of two art school grads and they have a very different take on the polish culture. Some of their polishes I have no interest in but I do have quite a few. Bottles run $8 and you can buy a few individual colors from Amazon with free shipping.


 That's it for today. I just wanted to get these two manis on the record. So until, next time.

Two For The Record

I wore these two this week. I put them in a combo pic on my Fashion Blog but will have them here as singles. 

Art Nouveau Nectarine by Finger Paints

This is as it says, a nectarine or a pink leaning orange. I would put it at a crelly texture.

 Primrose by Nubar
This is one of the palest yellows I know. Primrose is from the 2011 Spring Garden collection.


That's it for today. I just wanted to get these two manis on the record. So until, next time.

Julep and Love, Lace and Lilacs

Today is a stash catch up. As usual, I need some pictures for my Pinterest boards and it has been a long time since my last post. So here we go.

First up, is Julep's Cassidy. This is a bright turquoise creme that only needs two coats.





On top of that, I eventually added that old classic, Lynderella's Love, Lace and Lilacs. This is the first Lynn I fell in love with and the first I owned. No one makes them like her. I know I'm not alone because this one is still for sale on her web site.



That's it for today. I just wanted to get these two manis on the record. So until, next time.

Catching Up With Blue, Green and a Gold

Hello, hope everyone is doing good today. It has been a while so I thought I had better catch you up on what I have been wearing lately. These two colors have already been on my Style blog The MeadowTree Journal. Here goes............

I wore Lake Of Shining Water to go with a great new necklace I added to my jewelry collection.
Here is my excerpt about Amy's polish:

Of course, I had to pick a polish to wear with my pieces. This is Lake of Shining Water by Literary LacquerI can't say enough about Amy Milder's creations. She bases her collections on her and her fan's favorite books.The color I am wearing is from the Ann of Green Gable's collection. Started in 2012, Literary Lacquer's quality is impeccable and Amy has such a creative outlook on her polishes. Every August, she makes a limited edition polish for her birthday. I have snagged two birthday polishes at this point and find I always have room for more Literary Lacquer. If you are interested in a safe great Indie polish, check her out on ETSY

I picked Floss Gloss's Wet to complement some orange and brown styling that I did.

My excerpt from that original post:


 I picked Wet by Floss Gloss to go with the browns and oranges that I wore. This color is luminous light turquoise cream and it gets complements when I wear it. Floss Gloss is what I term a Boutique polish. Floss Gloss is the creative child of two art school grads and they have a very different take on the polish culture. Some of their polishes I have no interest in but I do have quite a few. 

Bottles run $8 and you can buy a few individual colors from Amazon with free shipping. 


I wore another Floss Gloss when I went to the Kansas City Film Festival to see Jeremy Scott and the debut of the new documentary about him as a designer. This is Stun, an incredible gold based micro glitter. This never made it to the blog because I only put our red carpet photo on Instagram. 


 So here's a first. I putting a style picture on this blog before I do it on my style blog. You can see why I picked the gold.



That's  it and have a great Spring. I never know when I will be back here.

Downton Abby

Last weekend, we went to a Downton Abby event. Here's what I wore on my nails. The bottom coat is Excalibur by A-England and the top coat is Dazed by Cult Nails. I think the colors speak for themselves. 


That's it. Terri
