I Got BBQ All Over My Fingers

January 28:

Ok so not really, but I did paint O.P.I.'s "Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ" on my nails!
This color is another vampy, but I think I would consider it a vampy red instead of a vampy purple. In fact, it is the exact color of BBQ sauce! This polish was very easy to apply, I only used two coats, and it lasted without chipping for two days. This winter weather has been awful on my manicure, but I am planning on experimenting with some base coats to see if any help.

After two days, and a chip, I touched up my mani and topped it with one coat of China Glaze's "Golden Enchantment" but apparently I didn't take a picture of it. Either way the gold holo worked well with the BBQ sauce.

Before I go I feel I should mention that this is a very morbidly named polish. As a Chicagoan I have heard the story of how Mrs O'Leary's cow knocked over the lantern that supposedly started the Chicago fire. That same fire burned down a lot of the city (having been mainly wood at the time). I can't even imagine what Mrs O'Leary would be putting BBQ on...maybe it was her cow?

Until next time,
Happy Painting!

  1. It seems weird to think of bbq as "beautiful" but this color is really really beautiful!
