Orly ~ Fowl Play

Orly ~ Fowl Play
A deep purple jelly base with magenta/pink and purple flakies

This polish is from Orly’s 2011 “Birds of a Feather” collection.

Fowl Play is probably the oddest polish I’ve ever worked with. The jelly is quite thick, so I sometimes had to dip the brush in the bottle several times to get enough polish on it for an entire nail. I didn’t have any problems with the flakies though,  they spread out evenly without problems at all.

It looked pretty good after two coats, but I applied a third coat to see how that would change the appearance. I honestly could have easily gotten away with only two coats, but here it is, in all its glory. Three coats and one layer of Orly’s Top coat:

It’s really pretty. A deep, vampy colour with a lot of pretty flakies. Too bad it’s winter here and not much brightness in the daylight. I can’t wait to try this in the summer, so all the flakies reflects the sun!

  1. Loving it, it's so dark and nice.

  2. wow, I love this, the flakies in a deep darker base looks lovely x

  3. thanks girls, I appreciate it. :)
    I really liked it too. Next time I'll go for two layers only though, and be more careful when I apply the second one. Xx

  4. I'm not sure I am loving this at all-

  5. Well, we can't love them all, can we. :)
