OPI I Have A Herring Problem

Last night I added to my red manicure with some black chevron tips. They weren’t too bad, but I smudged the black in one place when I top-coated them, and a few of my lines weren’t perfectly straight either.

Because of that, I took it off even before it had dried. I had a business meeting today, so wanted something not too garish (which also contributed slightly to the decision to remove the red and black chevrons). I had only recently received and swatched OPI’s I Have A Herring Problem, and I immediately thought it would be plain and professional-looking enough for my meeting. Plus, I thought it would match the top I was going to wear.

However, I was wrong about the colour matching my top. My top is a medium grey, which is how I viewed I Have A Herring Problem in the bottle. But placed next to grey, it most definitely is blue.  Thankfully, it didn’t clash with the top, and I do love blue so much, so I kept it on. I particularly like the shimmery hints. The shimmer looks silver in the bottle, but gold, or even copper, on the nail.

It took three coats for full opacity, but I did do quite thin coats.
