It’s our moving weekend and I’m sitting here with my desk mostly packed and trying to bang out those last few swatches coming up soon, and getting posts up that are releasing shortly. It’s actually not a bad way to unwind. We got the keys to the new house, Jacob got to see it for the first time today (Covid reasons, he didn’t need to be around realtors etc) so he got to pick out his 2 rooms. Yup. My boy gets 2 rooms… one will be his bedroom, the other will be his gaming room. Nick and I are taking the finished basement as a sort of Master Suite, complete with walk in closet and bathroom… and that left 3 bedrooms upstairs. We still have 1 bedroom we aren’t sure what to do with.
Sorry – I’m excited, but let’s move onto the post. I have offerings for the Polished Gamers Box March 2021 Retro Games Remastered to share tonight!
I have 8 of the offerings from this months Polished Gamers Box March 2021 Retro Games Remastered to share. These are the games I pretty much grew up on, so I love this theme.
This month’s shop will open on the 15th as always and will remain open until the 20th. Actual time frames and links will be at the bottom of the post.
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 get this show on the road!

Description: Apipila brings us another brilliant stamping plate, with some iconic retro games. I actually used Puzzle Bobble images for my mani, but mainly because Bubble Bobble was my fav when I was younger, and Puzzle Bobble was based on that.

Treo Lacquer | Princess Schala

Due to glitters, you may need a second coat of top coat to completely smooth.
