Polished Gamers Box | Mortal Kombat | July 2020



I am excited to be one of the guest swatchers for the July Polished Gamers Box. The theme this month is Mortal Kombat. Though I have not gamed in a while, I remember playing Mortal Kombat in the 90s with my siblings on our Sega. Funny story, we still have our original Nintendo and Sega from when we were kids, as well as most of our original games. When I found out the theme for this box, I pushed up my sleeves and started digging through our storage closet to see if I could find our original Mortal Kombat game, but after being elbow deep in cardboard boxes for an hour, I found the Sega and the Nintendo, but not the game. I’m sure that it will turn up at some point now that I have stopped looking for it!

What is the Polished Gamers Box?

The Polished Gamers Box is a game themed box featuring several makers each month. Each box will have a gaming related theme and feature different types of indie products that include nail polish, nail care, body care, wax, and other handmade items.

If you’re like me and enjoy having the option to “build your own box”, then the Polished Gamers box is perfect for you. All items are offered individually, so you pick and choose which items you would like to buy. No minimums or maximum requirements (though some items may be capped).

The Polished Gamers Box will be available for a one week pre-order from July 15th through July 20th. The turnaround time is will be 2-3 weeks following the end of the preorder period. Items will be individually priced and $4 flat rate shipping will be offered for all domestic orders. International shipping will be offered at cost. If multiple orders are made (under the same name), shipping overages will be refunded.

You can grab the Polished Gamers Box here!

I have 25 products to share with you today. I actually received 26 products, including a whipped body butter from Saki Lacquer, but it would not be a delivery in Arizona in the summer, if something did not go wrong. Let’s just say that our recent 110+ temps and the  body butter did not mix. so I won’t have pics to share with you all.

All swatches done using Vapid Lacquer – Commitment Issues Peel Off Base Coat and Quixotic Polish Fancy A Quickie? Glossy Top Coat. Pictures taken in direct lighting with a natural daylight Ottlite.

This necklace is set in a dark brown wood setting with an adjustable faux leather cord attached. It can adjust from about 14″ – 22″ just by sliding the knots on the cord closer together or further apart. There is no metal on this necklace. The pendant is about 1.25″ wide.

NOTE: Due to the nature of the magnetic polish and stamping, these will all look different. The stamp may be positioned differently than photos or the magnetic line may be in a different place. This lends itself to a handmade item and each one will be unique and special.
