Baroness X Pistachio Macaroon Mani Bomb Fizztacular



I love a good fizz, especially now that the weather is turning randomly chilly around these parts. And everyone loves a good mani bomb. Baroness X has been crafting some amazing scents, and today I'm giving the pistachio macaroon scent a go. The tl;dr is that I want to eat this bomb.

(promotional samples ahead)
These usually come in packs of two...but I already used one before I remembered that I am supposed to be a blogger...they just smell too good, ya'll. The scent is described as "buttery cookie, pistachio, almond" and I totally agree. There are very few things that smell this much like a damned cookie. Plus, the whole room will smell softly like cookies, which will make everyone in your house sad when there aren't actually any cookies...and thats ok with me. <evil laughter>

Baroness X Pistachio Macaroon Mani Bomb

Ingredients: sodium bicarbonate, citric acid, kokum butter, dead sea salt, sweet almond oil, mango butter, kaolin clay, fragrance oil, colorant

Instructions for Use: Use a part or whole of the mani bomb and a small bowl of warm water*. Drop the mani bomb in and soak your hands for at least three minutes. Blot gently dry and rub in any remaining oil and butter for a luxurious spa-like experience.

*I tested out an early prototype, so there is a lot more butter and oil in mine than the ones you can grab now. Which is better, really, because not all of my butters melted in the allotted time. I also tried the first one in cool (sub 70°F water because surprise summer) and it still fizzed and mostly dissolved...and any bits leftover I just used as an impromptu scrub. Nothing was wasted and I smelled delicious. The risk of self-consumption is real.

Now, for the demo!



Ever wonder why my videos are a little weird...its because I'm afraid to dangle my camera over a bowl of steamy water. But I will totally dangle my twice-as-expensive-computer-phone right over it, secured only by a cheap flexy arm...yeah. I don't make sense.

Danger! Danger, Will Robinson!

What is your favorite scent when it comes to mani bombs? Normally I am not big on scented skin care...but these mani bombs are changing my opinions. Let me know in the comments if there is a smell out there that I must try.

  1. Hi! I have a stupid question. Are you supposed to stick your hand in the water while it's a fizzy block still (right away) or wait for the little block to dissolve and then get your mitts all in there? Thanks. Love the blog BTW. The old one too.

    1. Totally not a stupid question.

      I say wait until its *mostly* done fizzing. That way all the oils are dispersed in the water and you won't have to be in the water for as long to get the full effect. For some folks, water is bad news for their nails so minimizing soak time is key. I generally fill a pot with hot water, drop my fizzy thing in, then go grab a towel/lotion/manicure supplies. By the time I'm back it is all ready.

      And yay! PGS forever!

  5. I love scented skin care - so yeah, glad the macarons are bringing you around! And I covet your grippy arm phone claw! My solution is even more white trash repairs - stacked, used UPS flat rate boxes -_- Where did you get that thing?

    1. I found it on amazon. I can go searching through my order history if you'd like! I think it was around $10...and it works wonderfully for holding a black light during neon photography!
