January 2017 Pandora’s Box

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

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.

Price: $39.99

Where to Pre-order: Athena & Aphrodite Etsy Shop

All boxes ordered will ship at the end of January 2017

This is a great box! I love all of the nail items in it. I’m not a huge makeup gal, but I love having my nails done!

I like that this box has more than polish. The mani bomb looks super cute! The nail wraps re a gorgeous shade of blue.

Mimi Green December 29, 2016 - 3:05 pm

The Winter Wonderland is an attention grabber. I still need to try out the bath bombs. This box is perfect for this time of the year.

I am a huge fan of Indie polishes and these are fabulous! I especially love Winter Wonderland- white polishes can be difficult and unflattering, but this looks great!

Pam December 29, 2016 - 4:39 pm

Cozy is such a pretty color. I also love those nail wraps with the deer. I don’t do my nails nearly as often as I should.

Pandora subscription box is something I have not yet tried. I love all the items you got in this box. The nail polish colors are amazing with the sparkles in them and I love the white sparkle eyeshadow too. Thanks for sharing this awesome box.

I have never heard of this subscription box before! I love the items that were inside, my daughter wants that nail polish for sure. I love subscribing to monthly boxes, it is like a present that I am not expecting each month.

Those are fun color of nail polishes. Your nails are gorgeous!

Amanda December 30, 2016 - 12:04 pm

The Winter Wonderland color is my absolute favorite! I love how it is simple yet sparkly–perfect for the holidays and for spicing up what can be a long and gloomy winter in Chicago!

CourtneyLynne December 30, 2016 - 10:01 pm

Omg so many pretty colors!!! I’m loving the white! I’ve been trying to find a white polish that actually looks like a polish and not legit paint lol
