I Have a Herring Problem




Name: I Have a Herring Problem
Collection: Holland 2012
Colour: Dusty greyish blue green with gold micro glitter
Coats: 2
Pros: This polish looks like the sparkling water of the sea or heavy storm clouds, giving it that dramatic seaside effect (without the smell of the fish its named after). It went on so nicely and I was pleasantly surprised to find that even after two days of typing, paper clipping and filing at the office, there were still no chips or dents in sight! I like that this is moody blue-grey with the added pizzazz of the gold dust because I have found that sometimes I don’t want an outrageous blue like “No Room For The Blues” or a boring grey like “French Quarter For Your Thoughts.”
Cons: I really liked this polish from application to the three whole days later that I took it off!
Similar Shades: You may have noticed that two of the bottles in this year’s Holland Collection look really similar: “I Have a Herring Problem” and “I Don’t Give a Rotterdam.” However, when you actually apply these polishes, it becomes clear that “I Have a Herring Problem” is more aqua with gold micro glitter while “I Don’t Give a Rotterdam” is lighter with silver micro glitter.
