I love this nail polish! It's a great shimmery blue-grey colour for spring, I'm not so sure about summer because I love wearing bright colours. This polish, as other reviewers have stated, goes opaque in about two coats. I usually don't add a top coat to shimmery polishes as it seems to make them trickier to remove. This polish has pretty good wear as far as that's cocerned. I can usually go a few days without a touch up. Great polish even if it is a tad pricey. Totally worth it for the quality and colour.
I LOVE this polish. I normally change my polish 2x a week. since I got this one I find myself not doing anything until I need to redo this color. This is a beautiful Blue/Gray/Periwinkle with a lovely shimmer not too overwhelming, and not too calm either. This polish goes easily from office to the pool/lake/club anywhere you can think of. The formula is also quite nice. It goes on smooth and dries quickly. 1 coat it is sheer but after the 2n coat it is perfect on me. Even if you are not a fan of blues this one is worth a shot.
This is a unique blue polish from OPI's Holland Collection. It's a light, muted, cool blue with hints of grey with silver glitters. Application was smooth and opacity was fair (3 coats to really get the full color too show).
This is quite an unusual color thats worth the $8-9 price tag. It's a muted slate- blue with gold and silver fine shimmer. The shimmer shows up quite subtle giving the nails a nice glassy effect rather than chunky glitter.
It somewhat does remind me of Essie Smooth Sailing as one reviewer stated however.. I would say, think of this as Smooth Sailing on an overcast day because it's definitely not as vibrant or as "happy". It's quite a moody soft kind of color. I think if you're a fan of understated blues and grey nail polish then this is worth an add to your collection. I find this to be the "spring" color for girls who love vampy shades. I usually stick with really dark polishes but tend to not be too comfortable with brights or pastels.. while this is nothing close to black, it's not an in-your-face type of blue nor will it come off too "old lady" either.
Otherwise the color takes about 2 coats minimum for full opacity. Typical decent OPI wear.
Its an expensive brand so, it was like $8.50 at the pharmacy. But it took about 3 coats to get the full shimmery blue, still its a great color for spring (But not summer..)
Pretty, dusty medium blue with slight grey shimmer. Opaque after 2 coats and looks great and has a smooth application like all OPI polishes.
I Have A Herring Problem is part of OPI Holland 2012 Collection. This is a greyish blue. It is a dusty blue grey base with lots of micro silver, goldish green shimmer. The shimmer is very fine and subtile.
Application is great. Very versatile color, works all year around. One coat provides good coverage but I usually make it two coats. Staying power is also very nice. I am usually not into grey/blue colors but this one is very nice. I'd repurchase. continued >>
I Have A Herring Problem is OPI Holland 2012 Collection. This is a glaucous blue. Kind of similar to air force blue with a grey undertone. The color itself is dusty blue grey base with lots of micro silver, green, blue shimmer. Very fine it brings out the liveliness of this color.
Application is excellent. I'm surprised with the pigmentation of the entire collection. One coat is definitely enough but two will make it perfect. The color is so cool tone based that it gives a good contrast to my warm skin tone. This color can be worn in spring, summer or fall as it is so versatile. I like to match it with my grey or black outfit and just break it up with light blue accessories. So far the Holland Collection is amazing. Mst of the color is cool tone based. I guess that's the trend. Love it!
This is my second OPI polish. Well, technically, my first. It's my "first" OPI polish in my collection and I have to say that I have no regrets in buying it. I bought this today at an Ulta for $8.50. I have never really experienced OPI's brushes, but when people say that their brushes ARE the best, they really ARE the best. I am so used with using Essie that every time I polish my nails, I would always expect to do a little clean up when I am finished. Anyways, "I Have Herring Problem" has great formula--no streaking and it is mostly opaque in two coats. I would have done a third coat, but I was satisfied with two. I topped this with SV and it looks gorgeous! Still contemplating whether to get "Wooden Shoe Like to Know" on my next trip (: The Holland collection is definitely a must-have.
The concept of this polish is reminds me of essie's smooth sailing. However, IHaHP is slightly more of a muted dusty periwinkle. The packed in shimmer leans more on the golden edge and on closer inspection you can see hints of purple and green. The formula for this polish was perfect. Two coats worked like a charm. I have been loving the shimmers that have been packed into OPI and essie colors. And this one certainly does not disappoint.
