Back from the Windy City with a Chicago polish !

Hello everyone !

It's been almost a month since I came back from Chicago and I've been a really bad blogger since then, I'm really sorry about that. I hope you all had wonderful holidays and that you celebrated the New Year with you family and loved ones.

Chicago was an incredible experience and I have to admit I miss that city and also the people I met there... alot !  I also met another blog which was a lot of fun. Go check Allison's blog here !

Anyway, for my first post of 2012, I thought it was appropriate to show you a polish from the OPI Chicago collection from 2005. Btw, I broke my middle finger nail just before taking those pictures so forgive me about that.

The color I chose from that collection is Mrs O'Leary's BBQ which refers to the Great Chicago Fire. Rumor has it, it was caused by Mrs O'Leary's cow... Anyway, interesting name.

This is two coats of creamy, buttery, vampy red burgundy polish that applies perfectly. You have to watch out for bald spots though.

If you're a regular follower you'll know that I absolutely adore that kind of color. It's always chic, goes with everything and therefore easy to wear. That's definitely a color I'll be wearing again.

So now that you know what I think about it, I would love to know what you think. What is your favorite burgundy polish ? Have you ever been to Chicago ? Any memory from the Windy City you want to share with us ?

Take care,


  1. I have this one too and totally agree with you about how it's chic and goes with everything. It's one of my go-to polishes when I don't know what to wear on my nails.
    And I didn't know where the name came from, interesting!

  2. It was so great meeting you! Glad you had a nice trip to the US. Happy New Year.

    I love this color. I think my 2012 goal is to find all the colors from the OPI Chicago collection.

    I've been to a Chicago a few times before I moved there. My husband and I had our first long weekend away to Chicago. So that's definitely a happy memory. It's definitely different living here then visiting!
