OPI I Have a Herring Problem

Am I fan of the name? No. Not at ALL. But, do I love this color? YES!!! From OPI's Holland Collection for Spring/Summer 2012... I Have a Herring Problem.

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats OPI I Have a Herring Problem
1 Coat Borghese Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

If Jeans don't already come in this color, they totally should. This is THEE perfect shade of antique dusty blue. OPI added in some superfine shimmer, most noticeably gold, and a bunch of other colors if you REALLY look at it.

This polish came out in the Holland collection OPI put out last year. That came on the heels of a bunch of denim colored polish collections. A few of those blues were similar to this color, but I don't recall any of them having the shimmer included. That DEFINITELY sets this polish apart, in my opinion. Contrasting shimmer was a bit of a thing for me last year, and I Have a Herring Problem was a must-have when I spotted it. 

It's been a long time since I wore it, and I honestly forgot how much I like it. Not sure if this will be incorporated into some nail art, but I'm thinking that some gold and cream could make this into a dusty Nautical look. It would also look great in a half-moon manicure... or maybe some sort of jelly sandwich? Hmmm.

How would you wear I Have a Herring Problem?
