Orly Fowl Play Swatches

Hey girlies! Today I have some swatches of Orly's Fowl Play, the most popular color from their Birds of a Feather collection, due to the fact that it's a dupe of OPI's Merry Midnight. I don't have MM but from what I've seen, these are dupes, except that FP has a darker base. I like the darker base, it means less coats for full opacity. I'm sure you've seen it a million times but I'm trying this new thing where I actually describe the polish I'm blogging about... Yep, I'm evolving into a true blogger haha. It's a deep plum jelly base with flakies a la Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure / Nubar 2010 and some smaller blue flakies AND some silver microglitter. I love it, I love it, I love it! Here are some pictures:

The first two are accurate base color-wise, but the last one I included to show the sparkly flakies! This is three coats, with some Seche on top. I love it!

(I know I said I would swatch Galaxy Girl first but I waited a day to do it and it had already chipped! -__- #firstworldproblems)

Sidenote: I REALLY want Wet n Wild Tangled in my Web and I can't find it anywhere! Is anyone willing to sell me one? Please? Help a blogger out! Haha :b

What do you think? Do you have this? Do you love it? Let me know! I know there are much better swatches out there but I hope I was able to capture at least a teensy bit of its beauty. Thanks for reading! :D
