I Survived Black Friday Collaboration Box Swatches & Review

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

Finally I can show this incredible box!  I received it in the mail a few weeks ago… except no one told me to expect it, so I was ohhing and ahhhing and then was told I had to keep it secret for a couple more weeks.

How can you do that to me??

BUT now the time has come and I can show you this beautiful I Survived Black Friday Collaboration box!  Teaming up for this box we have DIFFERENT dimension, Cupcake Polish, Glisten & Glow and NailVinyls! Of these 4 indies, this is my first experience with Cupcake Polish and Glisten & Glow’s polish side (I have used her skin/cuticle care and top coats before… just not her polish)

Lets take a look at the goodies!

Up All Night by DIFFERENT dimension

Up All Night

Up All Night is a deep teal linear holographic. Application was spectacular and I had no staining issues with this gorgeous shade.  I used 2 coats and a top coat.

I’ll be honest, I’ve only done Black Friday shopping ONCE in my 32 years.  That was last year and we didn’t even buy anything.  I’m not staying up all night this year…

First In Line by Glisten & GlowFirst In Line

First in Line is a beautiful purple linear holographic.  On first coat it was fairly sheer, but it did build up nicely!  I used 3 coats and a top coat for these photos.

Trampled by a Shopping Cart is a gorgeous pink leaning lavender holographic with pink glass flecks.  I used 2 coats for these photos and a glossy top coat.

Shop Til You Drop Holographic Nail Decals by NailVinyls


I had photos of both sheets of NailVinyls included within this box, but my hard drive recently died and I lost a lot of photos.  A lot.  Over 1200.  I didn’t figure out until typing this post that I lost the images of unused NailVinyls.  Sorry!

Along with the 3 lovely polishes shown above, you will receive 2 sheets of special NailVinyls within the box!  There is a silver holographic sheet and a hold holographic sheet with fun shopping themed stickers!  There are price tags, purses, polish bottles (!!!), shoes, money signs and lipsticks! I did 3 mani’s using these gorgeous nail decals and the 3 polishes in the box.

The polish bottles are too cute (all of them are actually!) but I LOVE that they are holographic!


This box is super cute and the 4 brands that made this collaborative box are heavy hitters!  This is a limited edition box that will go on sale next Friday!

Price: $40.00

Where To Buy: DIFFERENT dimension, Cupcake Polish, Glisten & Glow and NailVinyls

You don’t want to miss out on this epic holographic explosion of a box!  Once they are gone, they are gone for good!

Too funny, I had literally just finished watching Nicole’s video about this box and here are your beautiful swatches! I’m kinda sad that I won’t be able to order it, being international and all, because all three polishes are gorgeous and those vinyls look fun!

All 4 shops will be offering International shipping for this box! We couldn’t deny the lovely international ladies!
