Swatch & Review: Pandora’s Box – January 2017

***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE: This post contains polishes that were sent to me for free from the company/brand in exchange for an honest review. All opinions stated are my own and based on my experiences. For additional info regarding PR samples, click here ***

Hey y’all, welcome back and happy Wednesday! Today I have another collaboration box to share with you. Pandora’s Box was created by Angela Holbrook but this box is slightly different from other boxes you may be familiar with. This box not only includes 2 indie polishes, but also cosmetics, bath items and nail wraps and all for a reasonable price that we’ll get to later.

So whether your shopping for yourself or need to pick up an after holiday gift, Pandora’s Box has everything you’ll need…and MORE!

**All swatches are done using Commitment Issue Peel-off Base Coat by Vapid and Topped with Love by Love, Angeline (shiny) and Matte Me by Jior Couture (matte). Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**

Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland is a white iridescent crelly packed with white glitters of all shapes and sizes


Cozy is a light brown crème with different colored glitter shards

Top Left: The eyeshadow by Athena & Aphrodite is a very shimmery silver but I decided to spare myself the embarrassment and just swatch it on my forearm. (My knack is polish, I don’t dare dip my toe in the makeup realm for fear of looking like a clown…lol) It went on smooth and is very opaque.

Top Right: The perfume by Athena & Aphrodite smells soooooo good. Its scent is light, refreshing and long lasting. I love that it comes in the cute little roller applicator for quick on-the-go application. I’ll definitely be adding this to my emergency kit that I keep in my car. And by emergency I mean, nail file(s), cotton balls, base coat 😉

Bottom Left: The 2 Peppermint Mini Mani Bombs by Nail Jewelry Bling are amazing. Its scent permeated my entire powder room and living room area. I love that it came with 2 because I was able to share with my girls. They loved the fizz and didn’t want to take their hands out of the water. Our hands felt so smooth, soft and well hydrated after.

Bottom Right: Nail Wraps by Freya Wraps have the cutest reindeer and cloud design, perfect for the season. I was unable to adhere these wraps but I’m a novice when it comes to wraps, decals and vinyls so I’m not the best judge when it comes to their process or application.
