I'm going to mainly comment on the color of this polish, since there is a seperate review section on OPI the brand. (and BTW, I do think OPI makes the BEST polishes ever - long-lasting, great color, great application, and the polish doesn't get gunky, even YEARS after a bottle is first opened)
Anyway, I bought this primarily on impulse at Target, mainly because I was surprised to see OPI sold there (I usually have to go to Beauty First) and I was looking for a vampy polish to rectify my disastrous experiment with Revlon Vixen, (color is nice, but polish quality is terrible - ladies, you should never stray from OPI). Let me say that I am slightly disappointed with the color, because in the bottle, it looks more like a deep wine/purple, which is what I was hoping for. However, applied to my nails, it looks more maroon/reddish brown. True to it's name, the color is like BBQ sauce. It is still a beautiful, deep, warm, reddish brown, just not exactly what I was looking for. Maybe it looks more wine/purple on other hands, but alas, not mine. (Asian skintone - hand color is a mix of warm and cool undertones, but slightly more warm/golden). On the other hand, the reddish-brown is probably a more work-appropriate color anyway.
The polish itself is a shiny creme (no shimmer). I did have a bit of streakiness, but it really isn't much of a problem after a couple of coats, and to be somewhat expected with a dark color like this. All-in-all, a very classic, fall/winter color that you can wear to work. I'll probably use this on my toes in the summer, too.

This is my favorite color of all time! This is exactly wine color, burgundy cabernet sauvignon. It's perfect for winter and last a long long long time. 2 coats is all it takes, wide brush. Everyone asks me what color I wear when I put this on. I was in the airport and the clerk at the counter asked me what color was my nailpolish. My coworkers even complimented me on this! I went a new nail salon and had brought this color with me, as when I called, they informed me they didn't have this color. The woman applying my color, kept saying what a nice color this is. Very classy and perfect for work nailpolish color!

I love this shade. It looks exactly like barbeque and it flatters my medium/tan skintone pretty well. It's great as a matte shade because it's very suitable for everyday and sophisticated looking. It's a stylish color.

the 3 is based on the color alone. OPI makes the best nail polishes imo because they never chip, have the best wide brushes and are so shiny. however, i was shopping for im not really a waitress and got this by accident (aveda glare glare) so im disappointed by my purchase. i just think its too brown and not so flattering on me. however its really rich and intense with reddish undertones. would not repurchase but would recommend

I love this color! I have a honey skin tone and a lot of dark colors look funny on me but this is just beautiful. I got a pedicure in this color and my feet looked like they were from those coach sandal ads. I work in a salon and almost everyone looks good in this color. The only set back is the price but it's worth every penny because it also lasts a long time.

This is a gorgeous color!! Deep maroon creme, perfect at two coats...love this when I have short nails. Definitely a sexy color, I got lots of compliments when I wear this. Seems to be universally flattering, no matter what the skin tone. This one's a keeper.

This polish is in my list of top 3 for fall and winter.On my nails it's a creamy red-brown colour and while I wouldn't put it into the Goth category, I would say it's a great vampy alternative to darker shades like Lincoln Park After Dark or Midnight in Moscow. It looks gorgeous on short, squoval nails and applies easily. I get good wear out of this - at least 3 days - using two coats and a shiny topcoat.

I love this color. It's a deep burgandy/reddish shade. Looks great on my cool skin tone. I don't see any brown at all in this. When I want to wear dark colors, I alternate between LPAD and this. It's a very sophisticated classy color.

I love this color. It's a gorgeous deep burgandy. Many brands have burgandy polishes, but Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ is the best. Like all OPI polishes, the quality is very good. It lasts a long time without chipping and looks shiny even without a top coat. It took two coats to get the color to show up nice and dark. The only little problem with this polish is that it seems to take longer to dry than my other OPI's. Maybe I should try one of those fast drying top coats with it.

This was exactly the shade I wanted for my pedicure this week. A rich, deep, burgundy color. One without any purple or black undertones. This shade has no shimmer, it is just a gorgeous shade of shiny cabernet. This is truly a ruby shade...no brown in it at all. As with all OPI polishes, it lasts for days, and the color never fades (with the help from a daily application of a top coat). Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ is a staple ,sexy color to have when you want something deeper than a typical red, and you are not on the mood for Chanel Black Satin, or a dark eggplant. PS - Looks awesome with every shade of stappy sandals!

I really wanted a vampy, sexy color for a pedi, but the place where I get my nails done never seemed to have the right color. Enter MOLBBQ! Another reviewer said it looked like black cherries, and I agree. With two coats, it's definitely dark with a burgundy undertone, but in a classy sort of way, nothing goth. It really compliments my pale skin and was a great way to break out of a french pedi rut. Highly recommend!

This is probably my HG of all nail polishes. It's suitable for all occasions and goes with everything. It's not too red, not too brown, and not too purple, just right. It's dark without being goth and just looks classy and sophisticated. The formula is standard OPI, lasts fairly long and applies well. I can't wait until bottles of this come with the Pro-Wide brush though, because the current brush is a bit narrow and makes application a tiny bit harder. No real complaints though, I love this color and it is constantly on my nails. It's the only bottle of nail polish I've even come close to finishing, and when I do, I definitely will repurchase. Oh, and a random tip: I find that with darker colors, application is a bit gloppier, so I add a few drops of thinner in to ease application each time I want to do my nails in this color. It hasn't diluted the color yet and it applies a bit smoother IMO.

I got this in the mini set of OPI Darks which also included both Lincoln Parks and Espresso Your Style. This was my favorite of them all and I liked each one. Its such a nice red, not too darn red, really classy. My only complaint was the tiny bottle. Those mini are so cute but really a pain - brush is too small. I would buy a full size of this though.

This color can work on almost anyone at just about any time of the year. Not too red, not too brown, not too bright, not too dark. It's the one I always use when I don't know what color I want and I never end up hating it the next day like I do with a lot of colors.

Great application, great classic vampy color. I tried Revlon Vixen and that was a big disappointment. This is prettier and much easier to apply and remove.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
Great color for your toes in the summer rather than just the same old red.

Love MOLBBQ, this is why; I was looking for a vampy fall shade for a pedi. I can't do black on my toes (to harsh) and don't like bright true reds unless its the holidays (I'm weird about classic red) so I wanted purple or burgandy, something sexy, flattering, classy and autumn-ish. I picked MOLBBQ out of my stash. I had never used it but it looked just about right in the bottle and then ended up being perfect on my toes. Creamy shiny deep red wine color payoff...dark and sexy but not overly gothic. MOLBBQ could be manicured and professional or vampy and hot, just depends on the shoes / clothing you wear it with. Suprizingly versatile. I would say its similar to Essie Wiked, Revlon Vixen, Chanel Vamp (old version) but out of all of them I like MOLBBQ best because it applies so well. Fall pedi staple material for sure!

This is a nice purpley burgundy color, like the color of a red wine stain, in a cream finish. The name is definitely misleading as this is NOT the color of BBQ sauce at all. I would wear this on my toes but on my tips. Overall I'm not wowed but it's a very versatile color and not as harsh or dark as LPAD/LPAM.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Green
This too, is a great colour that works on any skin colour. Its perfect when you are tired of red but dont want to go too dark (Lincoln..) but still want to have a sophisticated colour. I also think this is the dark colour that works anywhere and with anything.

I love this color - for me, it was the perfect vampy color, as I'm not really into total black or the Lincoln Park After Dark-type color. On me, this color reminded me exactly of the color of a bing cherry - a dark, dark red with a tinge of black. In other lights, I could see how they would name it as a BBQ color, as I did see some brown. But, overall, I would characterize it as a deep, deep red-black. When I had this on, I couldn't stop looking at my nails! It's an incredible color and I received tons of compliments. I can also see this as being a wonderful color on the toes, as well. A must-buy!
