opi i have a herring problem (holland collection)

only when i started writing this post, i realized that i have a herring problem is my only polish from opi's last spring's holland collection. there are definitely a few more on my wishlist (dutch ya, rotterdam and gouda). 

actually, it is only appropriate that herring is my first, considering for how long i had a dilemma, herring or rotterdam. i am happy i opted for the former, but i'm pretty sure i'll get rotterdam at some point.

the promo picture says: "what’s that you say? i need to “sea” this shimmery green-blue?"

i see it as a dusty, gloomy grey toned-blue with dense silver shimmer that borders on being glass-flecked.  i find it to be perfect for winter, or those rainy days in spring. formula is good, a bit sheer after the first coat but completely opaque after second.

natural light:


cloudy day:

i used base (opi start to finish) + two layers of polish + top coat (essence better than gel nails top sealer BTGNTS).


  1. Herring looks great on you! I could never pull out a shade like this! great swatch

  2. Kako predobro stoji ovaj lak na noktima *.*

  3. Dobro ti stoji. Veoma je zanimljiva boja.

  4. Odlicno ti stoji! Stvarno je neobicna boja...

  5. odlican! jako me podseca na jedan essence koji imam

  6. Super ti stoji, Herring nikako ne treba da se propusti!!!

  7. Divna je na suncu, po meni nikako nije prolecna boja tako muljava, kao i jos nekoliko njih iz te kolekcije, al je jedna od onih koje vredi imati, evo ga na listi.
    Ja sam izabrala Windmillion posto je kremast, a preporucujem da ga razmotris kao jos jednu muljavo jesenje-prolecnu varijantu ;)

  8. I meni vuče na sivu, na jednu savršenu nijansu sive <3
