Orly’s Fowl Play

Orly’s Fowl Play is beautiful in many ways but leaves me quite uninterested in the end. I have no idea why as the idea is quite lovely;Β  a deep purple jelly base full of flakies and micro glitter and tiny blue glitter. It applies very well, is opaque at two generous coats and dries reasonably fast.

Bejeweled jelleh

China Glaze’s Creative Fantasy is a lovely deep purple jelly! I cannot believe how pretty it is and will have so much fun creating jelly sandwiches with it. I tried taking swatches of the polish itself but even though there were no visible nail lines in person after three coats, my camera decided to make it look like I had been digging in my garden…

I painted three coats of Creative Fantasy and two coats of KBShimmer’s Bejeweled and topped it off with a last coat of Creative Fantasy. Bejeweled contains gold and blue hex glitter in different sizes (as you can see in the last picture).Β  Creative Fantasy changed some of the golden ones into pink hexes πŸ™‚

Illamasqua’s Glitterati

Illamasqua’s Glitterati is a dark raspberry (leaning on plum) jelly with a ton of small micro glitter and medium prismatic hex glitter. It needed two coats for full opacity and color depth. Unfortunately the polish looks more stunning in the bottle as usual but is by no means uninteresting on the nails.

Oh, and ignore the watermark… I went through a short phase of trying it but came to the conclusion it was too much work πŸ˜›
