Orly's Fowl Play: I don't get you.

I don't get it guys.

Fowl Play is a deep purple jelly based polish (it reminds me of Blackcurrant Ribena if it we made with glitter and a dash of poison).  It's full of  micro glitter, a bit of blue glitter and of course duochrome flakies.  It was opaque in 3 coats.

I feel like this is another polish I can't get an erection over.  Don't get me wrong I don't hate it(great for  fall days when I have really don't know what polish to wear) but I find it underwhelming.  The only place it comes to life is in the sun.  When you can actually see everything.  And I hate the sun.  And even then I almost expect more umph.  This is yet another polish that I don't get what people see in it sometimes.

This polish is probably another reason I don't LOVE flakies.

This polish is also apparently almost a dupe for OPI's Merry Midnight.  So if you do like this or you liked Merry Midnight and either want a backup (and don't want to spend eBay money on it) or you just missed out on it.  I would suggest buying Fowl Play.  And you don't have to worry about ever running out because it's part of their permanent collection.

  1. Fowl Play is pretty much a purple version of 212, which I have and never use. But I hate brown polish, so I have no idea why tf I bought 212. :P

  2. I think it's normal to be let down by super hyped polishes. FP is super pretty on you, though. I love your nails. :)

  3. Matte it! I always find underwhelming shiny polish always looks better matte.

  4. I personally love it, but you're totally right--it looks a lot better in the light. And awesome idea, Jen! Seriously, when in doubt, matte FTW. :D

  6. It's a pretty color, but I get what you mean... I've got a whole bunch of polishes that I love in the bottle but then I'm all "meh" when on my nails.

  8. I dig this, but I'm not totally crazy over it, either. I appreciate that they made it, more like. You know, flakies, shimmer, vampy... all things I can get behind.

  10. I'm a big fan of Fowl Play, but then I also have a flakie obsession and the crazy complexity of flakies/microglitter/shimmer/IDK what else is distraction heaven for a slightly ADD girl like me.
