Orly Fowl Play

I have always loved Orly.  I love the fact that for $6-$8, you basically get a bottle and a half of fabulous polish.  I love the fact that each bottle has a rubberized cap, ensuring that you will never struggle to open your polish.  And I love the fact that Orly keeps reinventing themselves.


With Orly's Birds of a Feather Collection from fall 2011, Fowl Play speaks to the points I waxed quite poetically above.  First let me say that this polish was actually a joy to apply.  I can't exactly explain what I mean but I guess I'm implying that this applied with ridiculous amount of ease, despite being filled with multi-sized flakies.


Secondly, the color.  Um, can we all collectively stare in utter disbelief?  I applied 3 coats, so the purple jelly appears almost black, but let me assure you, this eggplant hue is a gorgeous base for the orangey gold, pink, and blue flakies.  Seriously, ladies, this whole combo is really spectacular.  So much so, I had to include two macro shots.




Ugh, I wish my camera was able to really pick up the vibrancy of Fowl Play.  I think it still looks lovely in photographs, but the flakies don't pop as much as they do in real life.  

I don't really have a lot more to say about this other than it's pretty flipping fantastic.

What do you ladies think??

  1. The day I got my bottle, my husband and inlaws set staring at the bottle for an hour trying to figure out exactly what color it was. I love this polish!

  3. It's another fabulous brand that sadly doesn't get as much exposure as other brands.

  7. Ha, it's one of those polishes, isn't it? I keep trying to be on the look out for another one to send your way. My Sally's basically cleared out the minute the holidays were over :(

  9. I just got this polish in the mail yesterday and guess what I did this morning?! You guessed it. I lathered this beauty all over my little fingernails. I fell in love with OPI's Merry Midnight and quickly fell out of love with it when I realized I'll probably never own it. However, this little gem showed up into my life and I'm one happy camper. I totally understand what you mean that it was a joy to put on. Easiest polish to work with! I think I'm hooked on Orly from noooooow on!

  10. I'm so glad you understand! From what I've seen, Fowl Play is actually better than Merry Midnight, with brighter and more flakies. I personally love Orly and I'm always happy to find a kindred spirit :)
