Fair and Fowl

Today I have for you Fowl Play, by Orly. This polish was sent to me by the wonderful Jacqui at craftynail, because she couldn’t believe I had only one Orly polish! And I must say she is right…this polish was a pleasure to work with. I had almost 0 clean up!


I started with two coats of Fowl Play, a stunning grey-ed out purple, with silver glitter, and flakies that shift from orange to green. Unfortunately, the green shift is only visible in the bottle (not on the nail) but its still a really intricate polish! I forgot to take pictures of it on its own though 😦


I then taped off part of my nail and added a wavy design using bundle monster plate 209 (my sister got me the 2011 BM set…SO MUCH PRETTY!) in purple or green (accent nail and thumb) before adding my striping tape.


I wasn’t pleased yet, so I matted the stamped part of my nail. I feel pretty good about these! Beautiful smoky purple with orange flakies, waves, striping tape, and matte. The best part? This was a quick mani!



  • Dark purple: Orly – Fowl Play
  • Light purple: L’oreal – Royalty Reinvented
  • Green: Essie – The More The Merrier
  • Stamp: Bundle Monster – 209

What do you think…odd but cool? I’m happy!

  1. How come I’m not getting emails when you post? I just clicked the thingy again so i get emails. I almost missed this one! hehe
    Glad you like it!!!

  2. I like them but at the same time so many textures confuse me, if that makes sense? It’s like my brain can’t handle it. How do you manage to keep the tape down? When I put tape on my nails they seem to peel after a few hours. 😦
