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?

SinfulColors Mauve On Seriotype

Whether you call it a seriotype or smooshy... (I prefer seriotype) there is just something about this style of manicure that I can't get enough of.  Polishes Used:  1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Out Ridge Filler 3 Coats SinfulColors Mauve On Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Hey there! It's been a little while, hasn't it? Sorry about that. Life happens, you know? Oddly enough, I didn't stop painting my nails during my hiatus. I kept taking pictures for a while, and then that just sort of stopped to. Weird how some habits die hard, while others don't change a bit.  Anyhoo... I found pictures of this mani in my files and couldn't believe I didn't share it! This was one of my favorite polishes last spring, and I recreated this exact seriotype/ a few times.  This mani started out with 3 fresh coats of Mauve On. I typically wrap my tips on the 2nd c

12 MoC: Merry Marsala

Since the announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year 2015, I've been on the hunt for Marsala in polish form. You might think this would be a simple task, but it's actually been quite difficult, and I'm still not 100% there. But this polish is thee best match (and deal) I've found so far. I give you Haze of Love... Polishes Used: 1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler 4 Coats Wet N Wild Haze of Love 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite   Marsala is an earthy red with an almost equal blend of red and brown. It's a super versatile shade, and depending on what you pair it with, it can lean towards either color. It's a rich shade, but not overly dark, and a little dusty. In all honesty, Haze of Love is a decent enough match, but it could still stand to be muted down a little bit. It's just the slightest bit too dark, now that I look at the graphics and my nail photos so closely together. But how many people are going to put

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027 , today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION ...  Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 3 Coats China Glaze Violet Vibes Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line SinfulShine Konstellation 2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and
