Between China Glaze, Essie,
OPI, and Zoya, we've seen a TON of spring collections, but I can't say many of
them have piqued my interest. At all. I usually love spring collections, but out
of all of them, I wound up with exactly two colors: Essie Ole Caliente (which
I'll show you in a few days) and OPI I Have a Herring Problem. I love both!
Herring Problem was a bit of an impulse buy, but I am happy with it. In the
It's a dusty, warm blue with flecks of gold shimmer. I
love blues, the dustier the better, and this one is no exception. Here it is
under artificial light:
Loooove that shimmer. The problem is, Herring
Problem is a lot more sheer than I was expecting. This took four coats. Most of
the swatches and reviews that I read depicted Herring Problem as a much greener
color that would be opaque in 2-3 coats, and that is completely different from
what I saw and experienced. I still really like it, I just thought what I saw
online was inaccurate.
It pretty much looks like this all the time, but a bit
warmer. Despite the differences between expectations and reality, Herring
Problem really is great, and despite its sheerness, the formula was wonderful
and needed minimal cleanup. Plus, look at the shimmer!
