Battle of the Purple Multi-Colored Flakies

Hi guys! So! As I'm sure many of you know, Orly recently came out with a new collection called 'Birds of a Feather'. I posted about a color called 'Sweet Peacock' a few weeks ago, and today I'm going to share with you the other color I purchased from this collection. It's called 'Fowl Play', and has been deemed a dupe of the hard to find OPI "Merry Midnight". I'd have to say I agree. I am fortunate enough to own both of these, so below are pictures of both the OPI and Orly version of this lovely color. It's a dark purple jelly polish full of multi-colored flakie pieces. In the pictures below I have two coats of each. 'Merry Midnight' is rare to come across, but you can always try ebay or swapping with someone. I picked up 'Fowl Play' at Ulta, so that is probably your best bet to find it. Otherwise, it is probably available online somewhere. I really like this polish  A LOT, so I don't mind owning both!!

Fowl Play




I think these are similar enough that you don't need to own both. This is especially helpful since the OPI version is nearly impossible to find. Can you guys tell a difference? 

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!!

  3. I can tell a slight difference and honestly I like Fowl Play more. After I got Fowl Play I got rid of my MM polish because I didn't see myself choosing it over Fowl Play. And really the only reason to hold onto it is because it is HTF and honestly I don't care to have HTF polishes if I do not plan on wearing them.

  5. Merry Midnight is my ultimate lemming, so I've been looking forward to Fowl Play for the longest time. I think this will be enough for me. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

    These look beautiful on you.

  6. Thanks for the great comments, everybody! Of the two, I think I also prefer Fowl Play. I guess on the second time around, you can get the formula and colors just right! Generally speaking though, this is such an awesome color and I'm glad that there is a chance for anyone who missed it originally to still be able to own it!
