Happy Tuesday! It’s the 14th of the month which means Polished Gamers Box for September 2021 opens tomorrow, and this month’s theme is Night at the Arcade!
I have 9 items to share this month! 8 are new to the shop and 1 is a Respawn (which means it was previously released and coming back now)
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).
Lets jump in and take a look!

Jen & Berries | $100 Glow Bracelet
Jewelry by RPF | Arcade Inspired Necklace
Inspiration: A photo of an arcade

The cabochon is painted with 1422 Designs “Cruisin’ In My ATV” which is described as a dark purple jelly polish with matte aqua hex glitters in 2 different sizes. There is a beautiful shift to the polish that isn’t quite subtle, but it’s also not super loud.

Penelope Luz | Game Room
Inspiration: Neon Light Picture
Description: Game Night is a neon purple crelly base with blue to purple duochrome pigment. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
