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.Β  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….

  1. I swooned when I saw this. I’ve never seen it until now but I’m pretty sure I want it badly! =D Lemming in 3…2…1…

    Ahhh! So gorgeous! I have been in the mood for exactly that color, and I don’t own any. Thanks for adding to MY lemming list, Danielle πŸ˜›

  3. I weird connections to polish names too. I have a real thing about California so anytime a polish has a Cali name I need it! That’s why I scooped up Essie California Coral and Soulstice Spa Monterey πŸ˜€

  4. *I* think it’s pretty BAM! πŸ˜‰ I’m far from a southern girl, but the shade’s gorgeous all the same. Lovely!

  5. That’s an awesome shade! This is exactly how I feel whenever I put on Essie Wicked. Kind of a basic but badass shade for every day.

    And it’s one of my great travel dreams to do a Southern BBQ road trip. Just hit one BBQ after another, from town to town!

    Take notice, Inglot! I’ve been able to resist their purportedly amazing eyeshadows because the lack of names just doesn’t inspire my imagination at all. This is a nice, vampy red creme, but as soon as you call it BBQ it looks absolutely yummy, don’t you think?

      Absolutely!!! I had such a hard time ordering from Inglot the first time because all of those numbers just freaked me out. It’s worth it in the end, but still. I get headaches when I browse their site. No bueno!!
