Orly: Birds Of A Feather

4 years ago

Please keep in mind that this is a post that went up on my personal blog at the beginning of the year. First off, Happy New Year! I know I am late in saying that, but I have been busy with life/family/non internet-blogging stuff, so I haven`t had a post in 2013 go up until now. I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas/New Year/Holiday! This was a manicure I had on in the last couple of days of 2012. I wanted to wear something that reminded me of confetti, but in a shade that I felt fit the cool weather. This hit all of those points, for me. This is Orly Fowl Play. It is part of their Birds Of A Feather collection from Fall 2011. I received this in a swap/gift exchange a while back from a lovely friend on Luuux. I hadn`t worn it, though, until just now. This is such a playful, cool weather kind of color. Don`t get me wrong, it can absolutely be worn whenever you like, but for me, I picture crisp fall or winter days. It is made up of a sort of jelly-like deep purple base with tons of shimmer and flakie flecks swimming through it. I pick up silver shimmers but then the flakies are all sorts of colors: red, orange, purple, blue, greenish, gold. It is really very complex and has a depth to it that mesmerizes me. It was easy to apply. I am wearing two coats in these photos. I feel that was enough for me. That evened out any thinner patches. I found it swiped on smoothly and the flakies didn`t curl or stick up at the corners (like some can). They all laid nice and flush with the nail. You`d think it would have a rough or, at least, slightly unsmooth finish but I didn`t find that to be the case at all. This is going to have to go into my regular rotation more often because of how much I enjoyed wearing it. Now I need to bust out some of the other colors from this collection and give them a whirl!
