I have a completely new-to-me indie collaboration box to share with you all tonight. Not only is the box new to me, all of the brands within the box are as well. This is the January 2017 Pandora’s Box!
As you can see from the photo, this indie collaboration box isn’t just polish. Within this box, you will receive 2 nail polishes, an eyeshadow, a set of nail wraps, mani bombs and a fragrance.
Let’s take a closer look!
Nevermind – Winter Wonderland
Nevermind Winter Wonderland is a whinter white crelly base with white microglitters, pearl round and square glitters, a sublte blue shimmer and a very small touch of holo. i used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Gloss Nail Lacquer – Cozy
Gloss Nail Lacquer Cozy is a warm light caramel jelly base with color shifting flakes that go from purple to gold to bronze, as well as holographic shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Athena & Aphrodite – Like An Angel
Athena & Aphrodite have 2 items in this box. The first is a perfume roll on Like An Angel. This scent is inspired by Thierry Mugler’s Angel. So if you like Thierry Mugler’s Angel, you will like this one. The roll on is a nice size too and perfect for travel.
Athena & Aphrodite – Athena’s Kiss
The second item from Athena & Aphrodite is a shimmery white pressed eyeshadow. This has a slight metallic cast on it from the shimmer and is a great highlight color, or inner eyelid color. Of course you can also wear it all over the lid for a shimmery wash.
I did a swatch below on my bare arm, so there is no primer down and it’s 1 swipe.
Freya Wraps – Pandora’s Winter Curiosity
Freya’s Wraps included a set of Pandora’s Winter Curiosity nail wraps. These are not decals. You match a strip up to your nail to see which size would fit best, trim the wrap down, apply a bit of heat (like from a blow dryer) and apply to your nail. I actually didn’t have a heat source (I swear I’m one of the only girls I know without a blow dryer) so I haven’t actually had a chance to wear these.
Below is a closeup of the pattern.
Nail Jewelry Bling – Peppermint Mini Mani Bombs
The final item in this box comes from Nail Jewelry Bling and it’s 2 Peppermint Mini Mani Bombs! These come in a cute little plastic gift box, and the mani bombs have a fairly strong peppermint scent (which I love) and they are blue and white snowflakes!
January 2017 Pandora’s Box Overview
Overall, this is a cute box with a nice mix of goodies. Pretty much everything in here I would use, but I would need to figure out a decent heat source for the wraps. I like using them as accent nails, so they would work for me this Winter. I really enjoyed the perfume oil and like the roll on bottle for it, makes it easier to travel with for me.
