I Have a Herring Problem!

Here is the second of the two blue shimmer polishes from OPI's Holland Collection for Spring/Summer 2012! I loved I Don't Give a Rotterdam! so I had pretty high hopes for I Have a Herring Problem! Let's see if this polish reached my expectations...

I Have a Herring Problem! is the same kind of polish as I Don't Give a Rotterdam!, but slightly darker and a bit more of a green base. The polish applied in the same way, and it took two coats for full opacity. I Have a Herring Problem! has the same shimmer than is found in other polishes from the Holland Collection, gold, pink, and green shimmers. I really wanted to like this colour, but I found myself wishing that I was wearing I Don't Give a Rotterdam! I think that this will just come down to personal preference. I wore these two colours in the same week, so maybe this was a bit unfair to I Have a Herring Problem! (Isn't the name so clever!?) I will post a comparison of the two colours very soon :)





I do like this colour, just not as much as I loved I Don't Give a Rotterdam! Which is your favourite?

Disclosure: This polish was sent to me for my honest review.

  2. It is so pretty, it's slightly less periwinkle than I Don't Give A Rotterdam isn't it? Really pretty though I prefer the other. I am surprised there are two so similar in the collection! They are both lovely though. x

    1. I was surprised that the two were so similar as well! But they do have their differences, so I feel that there is room for both polishes :)

  3. I could definitely wear this! I bet it would look good stamped over "Roadhouse Blues" too... And you have gorgeous hands!

  4. I love this shade. I think this is the one that side by side blog comparing the OPI Holland with Zoya's True collection showed how similar this OPI shade is to Skylar.

  7. I really like both the blues, but today I went with I have a Herring problem and I love it. I'm partial to green-blue-turquoise and this polish feels like something I've been searching for forever. So pretty :)
