With the right pale skin tone, this color is super vampy. LOVE IT!
This colour looked a lot more grey than blue on my nails as compared to the bottle. That was the onyl disappointment, however. If I had not expected a polish that was more blue-based I would have loved this polish- subtle and subdued but still pretty and shimmery. Application, like most other OPIs, was a dream. Opaque in 2 coats and self-leveling. A great polish, just don't be fooled by the colour in the bottle!
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!
