For the better part of 1.5 years I have been eying up one nail polish that I have never been able to find in stores. It’s available pretty easily online, but I always wanted to see it in person to make sure it was something I really wanted, and that it didn’t look like something I already had. Finally, at a recent trip to Ulta, I was united at last with this long time lemming. United and yes, it feels so good.
I will freely admit that this polish isn’t BAM- POW, WOW. What the name and color impart on my tips is what makes this color something I will treasure. Mrs. O’Leary’s BBQ. First of all, it reminds me of something southern (U.S. that is). I have a huge passion for the south and southern living. My family didn’t always live in the cold north (although I always have). My roots belong to the south and I think that’s probably why I love so much about the culture and food from down there. And then there’s BBQ. My, how I love BBQ. Barbeque ribs, chicken and the sauce…I will push people out of the way for some of the home made stuff. On my tips this reminds me of a finger-lickin’ good time, of my childhood and southern hospitality. And yes, I think southern hospitality is alive and well and something you have to experience for yourself to know what I mean.
I am certain not everyone will have the same reaction I have when I look at this polish. But I can say for certain that I am happy I finally fulfilled my lemming for this and will happily wear it often. Although, now I am pretty hungry….
