Nina Garcia #NGQ04 is Delayed + Hints and Spoilers

So we all know Nina has been crazy busy with Project Runway and Fashion Week and all of that.

Word on the street is that #NGQ04 will be shipping the first week of November because they are waiting on an item Nina wanted to add to the box.  UPDATE: The lastest news from Quarterly now says "mid-November".  /sigh  At this point  it's no longer quarterly, it's... trimesterly.

Update #2: I just received my invoice, so shipping should start soon!  I'm guessing Friday or Saturday the boxes will actually be shipped.  Then next Wednesday is when shipping notices arrive.  Last time I talked to them they said they send their shipping notices on Wednesdays.

Update #3: See full box contents here.

Here's a real spoiler for the box!!  Everyone will get one of these:

"Transform your skin with ProGenius Omega Treatment Oil, our signature treatment of ten carefully selected plant oils rich in omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9. The precise balance of vital nutrients instantly hydrates, nourishes and smoothes skin. Use daily to increase your skin's natural radiance."
Retails for $78!!

"A hydrating facial oil rich in omegas and ten all-natural plant oils that instantly smooths and hydrates skin."

So she keeps up the tradition of a big ticket skincare item and I'm totally thrilled about that!  I'm not sure if this will be the .5oz or the 1oz but based on past boxes, I would think its the 1oz.

The rest of the hints so far are:

Winter Essentials,
and a picture of a phone keypad.

It's also all over Twitter that Nina is currently in love with gold, gold, and gold so I'm expecting gold.

I just noticed there's a number 4 by the "some sparkle".  The fourth item then?  And why a picture of a phone pad?  Nine items total?  I don't think we would get another phone case (I love my Otterbox, btw).

The phone pad photo is from Quarterly not Nina.  When I tweeted Quarterly about the delay, they said that there would be a spoiler for the #NGQ04 box sometime this week but I haven't see one yet and there's only one day left!  

When I find that spoiler I will update this post!  Nina Garcia's #NGQ04 is currently sold out but there is a Wait List.  So get over to Quarterly and sign up.  You won't be charged (her box is $100) until they ship.  So early November.  And I don't know how many people are on the wait list but I know last time there were waitlisted people who got boxes so there is a slim hope! has another curator that I'm excited about right now and that is Rosario Dawson!  Her box has THIRTY ONE items in it and one of them is an Africa-inspired art piece.  I'm super excited about it!  It also will have some Honest Company products from her friend Jessica Alba.

  1. Thanks for the spoiler. I love face oil. I love Nina's box--through her second box I discovered time in a bottle! I can't wait for this box. It feels like forever. I hope for sparkly there is gold jewelry--something dainty like from Sydney Evan. The face oil is for beauty so I guess for fashion it is going to be a glove/scarf/hat as long it is not a leg warmer, lol.

    1. I love her boxes, too! I mean, they're a little eccentric but that's part of the fun! I don't know what anyone would do with that crazy shark clutch from the last box, though. As long as there is nothing shark in this box (and hopefully not shark legwarmers!) I think it should be fun.
      I *love* the fact that she includes a really fantastic skincare item in each box, too!

    2. Haha! I just use the shark bag and the other weird one (did we really need TWO weird zip bags?) to stash little things. I am hoping for gold jewelry too!

    3. It was definitely strange. The palm tree one was way better than the shark one but still... Ahhh!! I wish this box would ship already!
