Orly - Fowl play

Hello~ From Orly's Birds of a Feather collection, I bring to you Fowl play. This is a delicious red based purple with lots of small flakey particles suspended in it. Flakey!!!! :D Shown below is two coats. I found the polish thick and harder to work with, but the end result definitely makes up for it. Be sure to wait between coats when applying as this will prevent dragging and bald patches. I'm sad we didn't have any sunlight to photograph this lovely in, I'll be sure to sport this when the sun makes an appearance again :)

As you may have noticed, Fowl play looks suspiciously similar to OPI Merry midnight, which was released in 2009 as part of their holiday collection. It has since become a HTF polish - sad, because I've had such major lemmings for it. I don't own Merry midnight so I can't say with 100% confidence that Fowl play is a dupe for it, but they definitely look very, very similar!

I think my lemming's satiated anyhow. Who cannot love this baby - purple and flakey? I'm officially in love ♥

Fowl play and the rest of the polishes from the Birds of a Feather collection are now available in Australia. You can purchase them from selected salons and pharmacies, or online at http://www.orlybeauty.com.au/. Orly nail polish retail for $18.95 in Australia.

What do you think of this beauty?
