I bought this color because it was said to be a dupe of OPI's Merry Midnight. While its not exactly a dupe, it is certainly similar. I think its a really beautiful, complex polish. It has a dark purple-plumy jelly-ish base with blue and red/orange flakies and glitter in that makes it look like its constantly shifting. Its quite mesmerizing to look at, especially in direct sunlight. I think its a great color for fall/winter, but as I'm wearing it right now I give it use all year round. If you like darker vampy colors with flakies/glitter its definitely worth checking out

Thought this colour was absolutley perfect! Dark plum with gold and multi-coloured flakes. But this colour seemed to be much different from any other orly polish I've used. It took 3 coats to get the colour I wanted, I allways apply a essie base coat and top coat, and this polish was chipping in 1 day!! I do not pick my polish or do anything that would cause abnormal chipping, this has never happened with any other orly polish, Ive tried to wear this colour many times with no success :(
Buy at own risk ♥ !

Eek. There's nothing specifically wrong with this polish (after all, it's Orly) but...I just hate it. I saw Fowl Play nestled between Sweet Peacock and Androgynie and felt compelled to grab it. I kept staring at it when I got home trying to decipher what color it was. Brown jelly? Are those flakies? Glitter? Wait...it's purple.
I finally put it on my nails, thinking actual wear would improve the color. It didn't. I went outside, I drove around, put on and took off my glasses (and sunglasses), went under CFL,fluorescent and normal lighting and every time it just looked god awful, like Paris Hilton's barf on a Tuesday night.
It seems to me to be a brown-plum jelly base with red-orange-green flakies (VERY small) with silver/blue microglitter mixed throughout. Depending on how he light catches the color, it can look brown with specks of mud, or black with brown glitter.
I really can't wait to find someone to unload this on (hey, Christmas is coming up...).

This immediately caught my eye in the store. I don't have anything like it. Fowl Play, a member of Orly's Birds of a Feather collection, is a dark plum purple jelly with a mixture of glitters and flakes (red, orange, purple, and blue are prominent colors) suspended in it. It's sheer, so 2-3 coats is the way to go. Alternately, to conserve, layering it over a dark polish would work well to get that glittery effect. When applied, it actually looks like how it does in the bottle (packed with sparklies!), which is a definite plus. It's really stunning in the sunlight; it best highlights the depth of the polish. Less interesting in lower lighting, but not bad in the least. Colorful, unique, and beautiful!

I absolutely love this color . Having flakies in it makes it even more unique. I haven't seen any colors like this especially at where I live . Only downside is that it's sheer (3 coats will do the trick) and the dry time is not to my liking. Maybe I'm too used to the dry time of OPI and China Glaze.

One of the most unique polishes i own, hands down! i got this alittle before flakies kinda got super popular this year and people were so confused and fascinated by my polish. (x it's so gorgeous to just look at especially in the sun, so be careful to not be distracted by your own nails!

The color is more purple than I thought and would like for it to be. It is also very sheer, which I understand helps give it dimension, but it takes too many coats unlike other jelly effects type of polishes. It is unique but doesn't look spectacular under normal light/indoor lighting. I would like it a lot more if it was a tad bit darker and required less coats.

Fowl Play is pretty much what made me like Orly polish. It's a beautiful dark purple base with glitter and flakes. It's sheer, so it takes 3-4 coats to go opaque, but you get an interesting layered effect. Orly polish loves my nails, so it wore for several days before I even got tip wear (Though the bigger surprise is that I wore it long enough to get tip wear, according to my friends!) The formula is smooth, just takes a little patience to build up. I'd recommend layering it over other polish too!

I was overly excited to see this in a pack with Lucky Duck and Sweet Peacock at Sally's for about $10. What a steal!
Stunning color! It's so unique. Takes about 4 coats to look really strong.

The color is a nice deep purple with lots of hexagonal glitters that appear to range from purple to magenta and smaller, purple glitters. The purple base, however, is rather thin, so I find this polish requires at least four coats for full opacity, but because the base is thin, the glitters in each layer shine through, so it adds an interesting depth effect. As with most glitters, it's a PITA to remove, not any different from most glitters. I love love love Orly bottles because of the rubberized tops, and it's inexpensive without being bad. I would repurchase, of course.

I wanted to buy this because it was supposed to be a dupe for the discontinued and absolutely gorgeous OPI shade, "Merry Midnight" (which now retails on eBay for a ridiculous amount). This is not so much a dupe as OPI having given Orly the polish to be put into new packaging. Everything about Fowl Play is the same - color, glitter, even the jelly consistency which, frankly, I don't like on its own. I hate the idea of needing three layers of polish. And this is prone to smudge before drying, so be careful.
However, I do love FP layered over blue. Am likely to repurchase.

This polish is so perfect for fall and winter!! Its a deep purple jelly base with red-orange flakes that changes color according to how it reflects the light. It also has smaller blue flakes in the background which gives this polish so much depth. It looks like you layer on various nail polish over another! The flakes just reminds me of the fall leaves. The formula of the polish is slightly on the thicker side but it isnt streaky at all. I was able to get full opacity within 3 thin coats or 2 thicker coats.

This polish is sooooo beautiful. It's a jelly red-purple base (very dark) with silver and blue microglitter and red/green duochrome flakies. The base is a tad sheer so I recommend one cost of a base colour, however it does build up to mostly opaque in 3 coats.
It's also worth noting that my nails feel like adamantium with this polish on (plus tc/bc). Some people have mentioned that it eats topcoat but I didn't find that to be the case with one coat of Diamont.

Popularity of this polish being what it is, I can't believe I'm the first to review it! Fowl Play is a beautiful deep purple FLAKEY glitter. In many pictures I've seen it looks almost brownish, but on the nail and in the bottle it's a pretty dark purple that's slightly red. There are several different sizes of glitter; tiny ones in silver and blue, and larger randomly shaped pieces that mostly flash red, but sometimes green or yellow depending on light. I've seen this compared to OP Merry Midnight, but I don't own this so I can't say personally. It was opaque for me in 2 thick coats (over a basecoat of a lavender). I found the first coat to look streaky, but after the second, it looks perfect. It's really hard to do this polish justice in a review or in pictures. It's hard to find, so if you see it, grab it! It's definitely unique, and very cool!
