Hey There Everyone:
I just have a quick post to share today. I recently found the Orly Birds of A Feather Collection at my local Sally’s and they all had “new” rings on the caps. Now, I don’t know why they’re labeled as new but I was happy because I’ve been wanting to get my hands on Fowl Play for a while. How happy was I that I finally found it? Let’s look and see.
Orly Fowl Play
Fowl Play is a deep purple base with lots of small duochrome flakes and some teeny tiny silver glitter. In the sun it’s sparkly as heck, as you can see. In low light it kind of flashes different colors like other flaky polishes. It’s very pretty and has a LOT going on.
Nice formula. In two coats it looked perfectly opaque, but then when I went outside I could see some uneven spots so I added a third. I’m sure you can be more careful and get away with 2 and be perfect. This dries a little dull so you’ll definitely want a good topcoat to fully bring out all of that shiny, sparklicious goodness.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
It’s not that I don’t like this polish, but I would trade it for something I wanted in a quick minute. It’s very pretty, and if you don’t have a bunch of flaky polish already you’d probably really love this. I, on the other hand, have all the Finger Paints flakies, Cult Nails Clairvoyant, and a couple other random polishes with flake glitter in them. Since I have plenty, this just doesn’t have quite the wow factor that I was hoping for. I give this a regretful no thank you. But if you don’t have lots of flakies and you like them, then I would definitely check this out. Come Fall I’ll probably want to wear this, but I think my high expectations left me a little disappointed.
What do you think about this polish? Do you love it/hate it/are mildly amused by it? Let me know what you think! Thanks for reading and Happy Polishing!!! 😀
