A good 90% of the time, you could probably bet significant amounts of money on my nails being painted some various shade of silver or gray. And you would win. Especially now that I own Essie’s Miss Fancy Pants.
Now, Miss Fancy Pants came out a while ago in the 2012 Fall Stylenomics collection. I’m not gonna lie, my obsession was just a twinkle in my eye at that point, and it passed unnoticed. This year, I watched a MissGlamorazzi video and she was wearing it – and I wanted it. Lo and behold, a few days later I found it for $4 at TJMaxx, and it was like the nail polish gods had smiled upon me without even making me scour Amazon.
Missy (we’re on a first name basis now) is a classic creme formula, and it’s a lovely griege with what I would say are some purple-y undertones. The formula is wonderful, in case you were doubting Essie for a second. Observe:
Of course, my ring finger must be bedazzled at all times or I just don’t feel like myself. I’ve actually had someone ask me if I was ill or something one time when I didn’t do it. So I slapped some of Sephora OPI’s Mauvie-Star in the Making on there, along with the staple Orly Bonder base coat and Sally Hansen top coat.
Look at that griege. YASSS. GET IT GRIEGE, YASSSSS.
