Happy Saturday Peeps!
Sorry I’m getting this post up so late, but the day got away from me and then WordPress was being a pain in the butt and not letting me upload and edit my pics.
Anyway, today I have a comparison between two amazing beauties: OPI Merry Midnight and Orly Fowl Play.
First let me say that I can’t believe I FINALLY got my hands on Merry Midnight. It’s been one of my biggest lemmings for what seems like forever. When Orly came out with Fowl Play, I was happy to have it as a dupe for Merry Midnight, but I knew I wouldn’t be satisfied until I had the original in my possession.
So first here is Merry Midnight, which is an awesome, purple jelly base full of lovely glitter and amazing flakies. In the pic below I used 4 coats…more on that later:
Gorgeous right? Well now let’s look at Fowl Play, which is an awesome, purple jelly base full of lovely glitter and amazing flakies…wait, didn’t I say that already? 😉 In the pic below I used 2 coats:
Mmm, more gorgeousness! Now let’s see these lovelies side-by-side shall we?:
So is it safe to call these two dupes? I’d say so. Fowl Play may be a tad bit darker, but the difference is almost imperceptible. The main thing that distinguishes the two is the formula and application. I hate to say it, but Fowl Play totally has Merry Midnight beat. It goes on smooth and is opaque in 2 coats. I love it.
Merry Midnight, on the other hand, is pretty thin and took 4 coats to build up. It was giving me a little trouble with cuticle drag too. I think it would work best layered, for maximum color payoff with minimal effort. But I still lovelovelove it.
