I’m a little behind due to some storm issues (who needs power, right?) and while it wasn’t long periods of time without power – the flickers and short shutoffs made it so frustrating I walked away from posting for a couple days till things cleared up a bit. So while I am a few days late, the sale is still on – so it’s not super late. We’re going to look at a few offerings for the Polished Gamers Box July 2021 with a theme of Board Games!
SO I have 8 items to share from this month’s shop. The theme is Board Games and … we are a little board game obsessed here and have a whole closet dedicated to them (if we ever unpack the box they are in since the last move.) We have all the classics, some obscure ones, but the most used (and my son’s favorite) is RISK.
As always – the Polished Gamers Box shop will be from the 15th through the 20th.
For the fine details – for all photos shown – I used Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issues Peel Off Base and Vibrant Vinyls Fast & Hard Top Coat. I purchased the Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issues, but the Vibrant Vinyls Top Coat is a PR item sent to me for review. I do however admin for both Fan Groups for those 2 brands.
I do use artificial lighting for my photos. I get the most done at night, so I swatch a lot at night. My current setup uses GlamCor Pro LIghts and I use the Ultra X Model and this Daylight Company Duo Daylight Lamp (affiliate link).
Let’s jump in.
Beautometry | Settlers Cuticle Putty Trio
Inspiration: Settlers of Catan
Description: Cuticle Putty is a cuticle cream that soaks in beautifully and doesn’t leave a greasy look or feeling to the cuticles.
This is a trio of cuticle creams in small, easy to carry containers. It comes with 3 scents:
Have Sheets, Need Brick which is a fresh laundry scent. Completely reminds me of Bounce dryer sheets!
The Longest Road is the scent of Amber in the air. It’s a soft amber fragrance.
Seafarers Expansion Pack is the scent of an island getaway. The prominent note for me is coconut and has underlying notes of pineapple and vanilla.
Price: $5.00 | Cap: None
By Dany Vianna | Tiiickeeeet!
Inspiration: Ticket to Ride illustration
Description: Tiiickeeeet! is a medium deep dusty blue crelly base with gold metallic flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
My bottle did leak a little in transit which is why the cap looks odd.
Price: $12.00 | Cap: 100
Indie by Patty Lopes | Arkham (Magnetic)
Inspiration: Mansions of Madness
Description: Arkham is a deep blackened purple jelly base with orange holo microshreds, iridescent flakes and blue to violet to pink shifting multichrome magnetic pigment. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
I used the magnet on the middle 2 nails only and left the outer ones alone to show it both ways
Price: $12.50 | Cap: 150
My Indie Polish | IQ2000
Inspiration: An old board game that I used to play with my brother for hours on end.
Description: IQ2000 is a blackened bronze jelly base loaded with gold holographic irregular shreds. if you used Tin Foil Hat before – the glitters in this one are identical but the gold versions. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Price: $13.00 | Cap: None
Paint It Pretty Polish | Split The Run
Description: Split The Run is a blue jelly packed with shifting iridescent flakes that flash pink, purple, orange and green. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Red Eyed Lacquer | This Is The Way

Inspiration: The classic game that ties you up in knots, Twister.

Treo Lacquer | Microcosm
Inspiration: “The Ancient Japanese considered the Go board to be a microcosm of the universe. Although when it is empty it appears to be simple and ordered, in fact, the possibilities of gameplay are endless. They say that no two Go games have ever been alike. Just like snowflakes. So, the Go board actually represents an extremely complex and chaotic universe.” – Mark Margolis as Sol Robeson in Pi.
Description: Microcosm is a sheer golden base with black and white glitter in various sizes. It could be worn on it’s own or as a topper. I show it in 3 thin coats by itself.
Price: $12.00 | Cap: 50
Polished Gamers Box July 2021 | Board Games
