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!

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
