Orly Fowl Play

I finally got one of my biggest lemmings last weekend! I have been wanting Fowl Play ever since it came out. I managed to find it at T.J. Maxx in an Orly two pack, for about $7.99, which is an awesome deal. I painted my nails with it on Thursday night, but I was so tired from my overnight shift, that between each coat, I would lay on the couch, waiting for it to dry and ended up falling asleep each time. After the second coat and the second nap, I decided to call it a night. I ended up finishing the mani the next afternoon. Here are the pictures!

I loveee Fowl Play. It has a lot of great things going on. It is a dark purple jelly base that is filled with flakies that shift from green to orange, and blue micro-glitter. I can't stop staring at my nails. The flakies are gorgeous and truly take this polish to the next level. It's also a perfect dark shade for fall. I'm sure most of you already know that Fowl Play is a dupe of OPI Midnight Merry, which isn't the easiest polish to get your hands on. The formula was pretty great, it was really easy to work with. It was sheer on the first coat and a little patchy, but I already expected that, being that it's a jelly. The second coat covered everything up quite nicely and the third made it completely opaque. The drying time was decent as well. I did get a few small dents in my nail after my first coat, but the blanket I fell asleep with on the couch is to blame. None of them are evident now, thankfully. I topped everything off with one coat of my Orly top coat.

And just because here is a picture of Carter, now 5 months old and 38 pounds! I still can't get over the fact that he's mine.

Anyway, I can't believe it's taken me this long to get Fowl Play. Now that I think about it, I really don't know what was stopping me from going out and buying it, but I think the wait was definitely worth it! It's such a gorgeous polish and aside from its dupe, it's quite unique. I love it.
