Indulgent Intermission with Esther of Fab Fingertips

Blue is our absolute favorite color here at Polished Indulgence. Why then, you might be wondering, is everything purple? Now that was mostly my input. Not to undermine our love affair with blue at all, but because purple has always been associated with royalty and, hence, indulgence. Makes sense, no?  Nonetheless, we love a great blue and along with Esther from Fab Fingertips and her impeccable taste, today's featured polish is no exception.

This one hot momma (and we mean that in the most non-insulting, complimentary and positive way possible) has such an amazing style that we'd love to emulate but instead opt to live vicariously through. Indeed, who else would have the gumption to sport sparkly foil lips (I've read somewhere than an appropriate adjective for these would be 'amazeballs') and teal lipstick? We love the mix of nails and beauty on Esther's fabulous blog, and enjoy ogling her latest nail designs. But our favorite aspect is how she holds her nail polish bottles like a veritable hand model. Love! (P.S. I might be personally biased as this lovely lady is also very generous with the hamster treats, for which I'm very, very grateful. So sue me.)


Hello everyone, I am Esther from the blog Fab Fingertips, and I want to say a big thank you to Carmela for inviting me to do a guest post for her! I love Carmela’s perfect nails and I feel very privileged to be asked.

I don’t know about you but I’m slightly addicted to feeding Carmela’s blog mascot Hammie! Have you had a try? If you have no idea what I’m on about look to the left of the blog and down a bit!!

On with the post! I am featuring today a different colour from Max Factor. All the hype surrounding Fantasy Fire meant that some equally beautiful polishes from the same range were slightly overlooked. But I’m here to bring you one of them, this is Meteorite, a beautiful blue with silver fleck/shimmer.

Below is the polish under bright sunlight along with a close up photo to see the shimmer!

Below is under warm tone bright spotlight and slightly out of focus to see the shimmer!

This is a truly beautiful polish and was opaque in 2 coats, but I did three for the purpose of photos. The bottles by Max Factor in the Mini Effects are notoriously small and expensive but in my opinion are worth it. Let's face it, if you really like a colour you’ll always buy more of it! Well, knowing what us polish addicts are like.

So I hope you have enjoyed looking at this post and I will be sending dear Carmela a bottle of it to say thank you for letting me guest on her blog! Hope you are also having a fantastic holiday Carmela! :)

Thank you everybody! xxx


What a gorgeous sparkly blue! How wonderfully generous that Carmela gets to have her own bottle of it! Thank you so much! Generous with the treats *and* with nail polish, too? Seriously, how can you not love Esther? It was such an honor to have you on the blog; indeed, the pleasure was all ours. This is one ecstatic hamster on a sparkle high so before I wax poetic over the merits of visiting Esther over at Fab Fingertips, do us all a favor and just click the link. (You know you want to.)
