Polished Gamers Box January 2024 | PlayStation vs XBOX

Press Samples

It’s time for the first Polished Gamers Box of 2024! This theme is PlayStation vs XBOX for January!

So the basics… Polished Gamers Box used to be a monthly box, then it was a bi-monthly box, but now it’s moved into being a quarterly box.

You can see all 9 items I received video swatched on my YouTube below:

Basically each box is themed with some sort of gaming – might specifically be a game or it can be broader like board games or retro games or it could be a genre of games. The box is open from the 15th of the month until the 20th. Then it closes – totals are sent to makers and it can take about 3-4 weeks before shipping starts up since makers have to get their total sold to HQ to prep for shipping.

For the fine details – for all photos shown – I used Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issues Peel Off Base, and for the glossy photos I did Monarch Lacquer Hi-Def Shine Top coat (sent as PR and I’ve also purchased). 

My lighting set up was changed recently. So now, since I use artificial lighting due to my day job, my new set up involves 2 Neatfi XL Lamps from Amazon (affiliate link) as well as this Daylight Company Duo Daylight Lamp (affiliate link).

Let’s take a closer look at each one!

Alchemy Lacquers | Night Warriors

Inspiration:  Inspired by my very first PlayStation game, Darkstalkers and one of the leading characters Morrigan.

Cuticula | Battle of the Boxes

Description: Battle of the Boxes is a green jelly base loaded with green to blue and blue to purple shifting glass flakes, as well as black flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Lemming Lacquer | Lollipop Chainsaw

Inspiration: For my inspiration I chose the mindless fun with sparkles, rainbows, and zombies–Lollipop Chainsaw. I got to play as Juliet, the teenage cheerleader/zombie killer who’s also totally in love with her boyfriend Nick. My mom bought it for me one year for my birthday. I only got to play it up to a certain point because life soon got in the way and I switched to PC gaming but I just remember having so much fun playing this game. I still have my PS3 and the game has to be somewhere in my house. Despite having no time for gaming right now I hold out hope that someday I’ll be able to complete a full playthrough.

Description: Lollipop Chainsaw is a candy pink jelly base with electric blue shimmer and twinkling holographic micro glitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: $13.25 | Cap: 100

Luna Lacquer | It Takes Two

Inspiration: It Takes Two video game on all platforms. I do not discriminate when it comes to gaming platforms!

Description: It Takes Two is a blue jelly base loaded with blue aurora shimmer as well as purple to pink to peach to gold shifting magnetic pigment. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. I only magnetized the middle and ring nails so you can see it both ways.

Price: $12.00 | Cap: 100

Rain Dance Lacquer | Starborn
