Today I am sharing with you Orly Fowl Play. This was originally part of Orly’s 2011 fall Birds Of A Feather collection but is still available.
I was a little disappointed in this color, to be honest. It looks a lot prettier/interesting in the bottle. It’s pretty nice looking in the sun or direct light, but a little boring otherwise. I don’t think I’ll be wearing this often- maybe as a base for galaxy nails or something, although the flaky glitter might throw off the look. It also may look nice as a top layer on another color. I’m a big fan of vampy colors and this just falls a little flat for me.
This is 3 coats with Seche Vite to top. It was opaque in 2 coats but did not have much glitter at that point, so I went for a third. Application was fairly easy, the formula is pretty thick. Apologies for the dents/sloppiness. A few of these pictures were taken right after applying last night, a few this morning. I made the mistake of painting my nails while hungry, and didn’t wait long enough for it to dry completely before getting some food for dinner, so I ended up with a few dents. I’ve been using cuticle cream daily but I am still sick (>:) and I think my health is taking a toll on my skin. Anyways, on to the photos!

All in all, an okay polish. I doubt I’ll wear it again by itself, but since I only have a little over 80 bottles in my collection currently (though it’s ever-growing), I’ll probably find some other way to wear it.
