I have something super exciting to share with you guys today! I have reviewed a variety of Mani Bombs from Forever Polished and have always really enjoyed them. She recently approached me asking if I’d like to collaborate on a new mani bomb for her shop- well, butter my butt and call me a biscuit, of COURSE I wanted to!
Immediately I knew I wanted it to be something mermaid themed (which I’m sure comes as a surprise to exactly none of you). We discussed scents and shapes and then Ashley got to work creating something amazing- not just one mani bomb but an entire mermaid themed box!
The Forever A Mermaid box contains four mermaid-themed mani bombs and one cuticle butter and will retail in her shop for $12.00. This is an awesome deal and would also make a great gift! Even better, she’s provided a coupon code for my readers to save a little off that price, so make sure to read through to the end!
First off, I have to take a moment to talk about the packaging. I’m usually not one to really care about special packaging and I’ve said that time and again but this box made me eat my words. The attention to detail is super impressive, from the mermaid-esque blue glitter on the back of the information card to the cute sea-themed touches on the labels to the MERMAID PRINTED ON THE BOX.
Yes, you heard that right. I was not expecting that when I opened it and it really blew me away how much this felt like I was opening a special gift.
Let’s take a look at each item individually-
If you haven’t checked out the last posts, you may be wondering what a mani bomb is. Similar to a bath bomb, they contain various ingredients like salts, oils and butters and come in a variety of scents and shapes. You fill a bowl with warm water, drop a bomb in and let it fizz! After soaking your hands for about 10-15 minutes, you towel dry and enjoy nicely moisturized hands!
For The Love of Ariel! The “ThingamaBOMB”!– Is this not the cutest name and label ever?? This bomb is really cute and I love how the added glitter is in Ariel colors. All four mani bombs contain kelp powder which is nice for skin and definitely reminds me of the ocean. This particular bomb smells very fresh with a hint of sweetness…or at least it smells that way to me, I’m bad at deciphering scents but it smells amazing!
Ocean Breeze….is like a Mermaid sneeze!– I love the fine blue glitter on this one! Definitely makes me think of a mermaid’s tail. I could sit here huffing the bag this one was in all day, it smells divine- very strong, fresh scent on this one.
Sea Kelp & Mermaid Tears– Aren’t these & the next set in the cutest shapes? She ordered these new molds specifically for this box and I think it really gives it a special touch. This smells similar to the Ariel one but with the hint of sweetness a bit stronger, I really like it. Here’s a video on instagram of this one fizzing!

Sea Salt & Drinks– One of the bombs broke in half during shipping but that doesn’t effect it’s usefulness if that happens luckily, just throw both halves in! Ashley ships in boxes with a lot of padding so I think it is just the fragile-ness of the particular shape. This one is my favorite scent by far- it really smells just like you’re sitting by the ocean. Really made me want to be sitting at the beach with a cocktail in hand but all I can see is snow out of my window, grrr.
Let The Sea Set You Free Cuticle Balm– I’ve talked a little bit about Forever Polished’s cuticle balm in my last review post, but I really love it! The consistency feels nice on the skin and melts into it easily and it’s very moisturizing. This contains Tea Tree oil along with kelp powder and smells really nice and fresh.
Overall, I am beyond excited with how this box turned out and I hope you guys like it, too. Again, she will be restocking her shop (including this new box) tomorrow, February 22nd at 3 PM PST. She has amped up her stock levels for this restock but she usually sells out extremely quickly so I would set an alarm so you don’t miss it! Keep an eye on her instagram for any other updates. And as mentioned before, she is awesome and giving out a coupon code for my readers to save $2 off of this box- use mermaid at checkout!
