OPI I Have A Herring Problem

The OPI Holland collection is one that I was especially drawn to when the first batch of press release blogger swatches made the rounds, but I never got around to actually purchasing the shimmers that I wanted. Lucky for me I heard about a half off sale through Nouveau Cheap and picked up I Have A Herring Problem and Dutch 'Ya Just Love OPI?. This brought my polishes from this collection up to three, so maybe one day I'll finally acquire all the ones I want!

I Have A Herring Problem is a dusty, medium denim blue with very fine, cool toned gold microshimmer. My swatch is three coats with base and top coat. The formula on this color left something to be desired, namely pigmentation. The formula was on the thin side and I had issues getting the tips of my nails opaque. That being said, it's a very pretty muted blue and was worth the little bit of extra effort.

What are some of your favorite OPI shimmers? What colors did you like from the Holland Collection? Let me know in the comments and thanks for reading!


  1. Love the shimmer in this shade :)

  2. From the Holland collection I have: Thanks a Windmillion, Gouda Gouda Two Shoes, and Kiss Me on My Tulips. I got the first and second from a buy one get two free sale at a salon inside a Walmart. I picked up the last one from TJ Maxx for $4. This collections isn't my fave from OPI. I much prefer the Euro Centrale collection.

    1. I really want Gouda Gouda Two Shoes! I'm going to have to check out my local Walmart's salon for that deal, thanks for the heads up!
