Essie Miss Fancy Pants Nail Lacquer - Review

Tuesday, October 23, 2012


A few days ago I logged into my Boots account only to be greeted with the news that I had
around £30 in advantage points to spend, yes that alone says when you can accumulate that amount
of points in a short space of time then you really don't need anything else from the beauty aisles
but you know me better than that and I of course spent them without a second thought.


One of the things I placed in my online basket was Essies Miss Fancy Pants from the new Autumn collection, I needed another sludge coloured nail polish like I needed a whole in the head but online swatches had me seriously lusting after this shade...well until it landed on my doorstep that is!

(L-R Chinchilly, Miss Fancy Pants) 

In reality it is nothing special, yes the typical Essie formula is there - opaque in two coats, no streaks
and the wide diffusion line brush but sadly it is almost identical to one of the permanent shades within the diffusion line which is of course Essie's Chinchilly, so much so I find it hard to differentiate between the two.
At a push I would say Essie Miss Fancy Pants is the lighter and less purple of the two shades 
but make no mistake you don't need both so if you own Chinchilly don't make the same mistake I have!
That aside I do like both shades and find the cool toned murky mauve tone they have really wearable
and a great alternative to a nude nail.

  2. They made an error and put thirty on mine one afternoon so I bought loads of soap and glory! It was such a good afternoon, haha.

  3. I've never tried any of these nail varnishes, the colour is lovely though!

  4. I think I prefer Chinchilly, this shade is nice but a bit too 'mushroom-y' for me. £30 in points is an impressive amount to rack up! Looking forward to seeing how you spend the rest :)

  5. I was confused myself when I saw you pop up in my google reader. I thought "surely she's made a mistake, that's Chinchilly" lol..Sorry about picking up such a similar shade, it can be quite annoying...x

  6. Pretty, but as you said, nothing special seen as you have a dupe already in your collection, still, at least if Chinchilly runs out you have a backup :)

  9. £30 in points is impressive. Mine's at £16 so far and I'm saving them for a christmas treat for myself :) No doubt the 3 for 2 will have stopped by then though!

  12. I really love the nude Essie polishes. I've looked at Chinchilly a few times in store. I've just uploaded a review on my blog one of of my favorite nudes from them. I would love it if you could check it out. Katie x
