May 2021 Indie Games Polished Gamers Box

PR SAMPLE / PAID PGB EMPLOYEE

It’s gonna be MAY! And with that comes the May Indie Games themed Polished Gamers Box!
What is an Indie Game? Well, Wikipedia’s official definition is “a video game typically created by individuals or smaller development teams without the financial and technical support of a large game publisher, in contrast to most “AAA” (triple-A) games.”
If you want my opinion, this is really a perfect theme for these fabulous indie makers! It’s Indie-ception!
All of the makers took great care this month to not use official images from these lovely indie games as well.
Next up is that sweet FAQ, then on to the items!

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.
Every month a Facebook Event is created within the Polished Gamers Facebook group and within that event, a post is made for each item. Each month an album is also created that features a collage of each item.
What if I don’t want to order everything in the box?
That’s the beauty of the Polished Gamers Box! You can pick and choose what you want to order. No minimums or maximums, just order what items you want!
When can I get the box?
The box will launch on the 15th of every month and will be available for preorder for a five day period.
Preorders will open at 11:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM MT / 1:00 PM CT / 2:00 PM ET on the 15th
Preorders will close at 9:00 PM PT / 10:00 PM MT / 11:00 PM CT / 11:59 PM (12:00 AM) ET on the 20th
The turn around time will be approximately 3-4 weeks after the box preorder ends on the 20th of each month.
Where do I go to order the box?
polishedgamersbox.com
Is there a support email if I have questions about my order?
Yes! Feel free to email polishedgamers@gmail.com if you have questions about your order or the box!
Is there Polished Gamers social media I can follow?
There is!
Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/polishedgamers/
Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/polishedgamers/
Discord (This is the invite link to the channel): https://discord.com/invite/TQhTYcJ
How much is shipping for the box?
Domestic: $4 flat rate shipping
International: At cost shipping (website will calculate at checkout)
Customs forms are auto generated for international orders and will not be changed or adjusted to reflect a different price other than the real full cost of your order.

STARTING JANUARY 2021
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING CHANGES:
With changes to the VAT rules in the UK, PGB will unfortunately have to discontinue shipping to the UK for orders under £150. We would encourage group buys to the UK. Unfortunately we are unable to hold multiple orders so that once combined, the orders reach that total. Changes could occur in the future but for now unfortunately this is the solution.
If an order accidentally makes it through, unfortunately we will have to refund it.
If you do make multiple orders, shipping overages can/will be refunded if the multiple purchases are made using the same name.
Shipping overages are refunded when orders are actually packaged up. Combining orders is a time consuming and manual task that the system does not just automatically do for us, so this does take a little extra time. But we do know it helps take some pressure off of releases with low cap items
Are there caps on items?
Each maker will set caps for their items and things can sell out!
Can items return and be sold again?
All Polished Gamers Box items are exclusive to the month’s box. BUT a monthly “respawn” began late 2020. Each month a max of 5 makers will bring back an item that was released in a previous Polished Gamers Box. These items can be the original formula, or a 2.0 new formula.
The items that return are up to the makers, but be on the look out in this group or in brands’ fan groups for polls on what could / should return!


All of my swatches are using Cuticula’s peel off base coat (unless otherwise noted) and are topped with Vapid Lacquer’s Quick Dry Top Coat
I also top that with Red Eyed Lacquer’s Tips Matte-r Matte Top Coat

Poop Vinyl Sticker

Shop | Facebook | Facebook Group | Instagram

Description: Poop shaped sticker with iridescent corn and holographic bubble gum sticking out. Perfect for anywhere you’d like some s*** 😆
Price: $7.00 USD
Size: 3.25 x 3.25 sticker
Cap: 40
Inspiration: Inspired by Muddy Heights the Indie game

Indie Game Information
Purchase the game – Muddy Heights 2: https://store.steampowered.com/app/463850/Muddy_Heights_2/ (Available on Steam)
From the overview section on Steam:
In Muddy Heights 2, you play as a person who has had a little bit too much to eat and needs to relieve himself by any means possible. Poop off various heights onto people and vehicles to score points. Complete level goals to gain cash to buy more food.

I am learning about all sorts of Indie Games I haven’t heard of before now! Muddy Heights is definitely one of them!
After doing a little bit of research it looks like the first game is web based (I could be wrong about this, so I didn’t include any links) but the second is available on Steam!
This sticker looks to perfectly capture the ummm look and feel of the game. 😆 No, I’m not saying the game looks like poop, but rather, this is what the game is about! You poop on ummm people. And things. And then you get points! But remember, that is NOT how real life works, so don’t go and poop in public. 😛
The sticker itself is vinyl and the mix of holo and iridescent pieces is quite cool! The bubblegum is super pretty and I loved trying to capture all that shift! Check out my photos down below for vinyl sticker application tips!

Help Madeline survive her inner demons on her journey to the top of Celeste Mountain, in this super-tight platformer from the creators of TowerFall. Brave hundreds of hand-crafted challenges, uncover devious secrets, and piece together the mystery of the mountain.

This looks like a super fun platformer. I love the art style and the color palette is gorgeous! This polish perfectly suits its inspiration as well. I may have to pick this one up for the Switch!

My swatches are 2 coats of polish and topped with 1 coat of top coat.

Is it like, against all indie rules to say this polish and its shimmer remind me of that fancy unicorn pee pigment? Because it sort of reminds me of that. The shimmer is gorgeous and was almost difficult for me to capture, so I hope my photos turned out and show off just how pretty this polish is! This polish actually also dried matte which turned out super lovely! I still added a glossy top coat but I couldn’t wait to put a matte top coat on it again for photos!
This polish applied ultra easily and I think you’ll definitely want to see this one in person!

Price: $12.50 USD

Inspiration: Hello Neighbor

From the overview section on Steam:
Hello Neighbor is a Stealth Horror Game about sneaking into your neighbor’s house and figuring out what he’s hiding in the basement. Play against an advanced AI that learns from your actions.

I am like, the worst Indie Game player apparently, I haven’t played this one either! It looks like it would get your heart racing though! I don’t know if I could handle it! I’m also not so great at stealth games….I really just like to Leeroy Jenkins into the games I play. 😉

My swatches are 2 coats of polish and topped with 1 coat of top coat.

This is such a deep, dark, and lovely polish! I actually used 2 thicker coats to achieve full coverage and I love how it’s not a super thin sheer multichrome. The shift is fabulous and it matches the inspiration perfectly! The green shift in this polish was the hardest part to capture on camera, but it’s way easier to see in person! I basically had to use my foot to hold up my tri-pod up higher to try and capture it because I couldn’t get my hand right in the lighting I guess haha! But don’t worry. It will not be difficult to see in person.
This polish applied easily and honestly it already has me ready for fall. I’m okay with skipping summer. 😉

Geekish Glitter Lacquer

The Ghost Face

Shop (this is an affiliate link) | Facebook | Facebook Group | Instagram

Description: This polish is a black linear holographic jelly base with red holo microglitter, white microflakies, and thin chrome colored shreds.
Our very own PGB admin Britta (Planet Lacquer) came up with the idea for this polish.
**Please note: some swatchers reported that some of the chrome glitters were sticking up from the polish due to a couple getting stuck together. The formula has been tweaked slightly to be a thinner base and a little less chrome glitter. This won’t fundamentally change the appearance but will help with the glitter occasionally sticking together. This polish may dry with a texture. GGL always recommends a thick topcoat or a glitter smoothing topcoat such as the GGL Criminally Smooth Glitter Topcoat.
Price: $11.00 USD
Cap: 100
Inspiration: Dead By Daylight has many a killer going after survivors on behalf of the Entity, both familiar and new. Danny Johnson is a familiar yet new face. This polish takes on the dark aura of the Ghost Face killer with a little flair

Indie Game Information
Purchase the game – Dead By Daylight: https://deadbydaylight.com/en (Available on Steam, Switch, Xbox, PlayStation)
From the overview section on Steam:
Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer (4vs1) horror game where one player takes on the role of the savage Killer, and the other four players play as Survivors, trying to escape the Killer and avoid being caught and killed.

This game is definitely too spooky for me so I will ummm pass, or I will have nightmares, but I love the horror game inspiration all the same! It inspired a fabulous polish.

My swatches are 2 coats of polish and topped with 1 coat of top coat.

So be sure to read the full product description above! There has been a little bit of reformulation of this polish after being sent to swatchers. 🙂 I did notice the issue of the chrome glitters sticking together in my bottle, but I received mine before the reformulation. I would say that I only got like one or two pieces that were sticking together a little bit on maybe each nail. I was able to remove some of the pieces that stuck up while applying the polish by simply dragging the pieces off the edge of my nail and then I wiped the brush on a paper towel, but you may see some texture still in my photos below. Otherwise, this polish applied very easily and everything mixed together is legit so much fun. I am a big fan of silver in general so the shreds are right up my alley! And the HOLO!
Even with this original batch, after one coat of top coat, there was almost no texture for me except in a few spots. There was still some, but nothing that drove me crazy, so I left it at one coat. 🙂 I can’t get enough of this polish matte though. The silver shreds just stand out so much and I am completely here for it!

This is such a fun bright polish! I can’t believe how sparkly it is! The pink and the holo just shine and glow and compliment each other so well. This is really one of those polishes that I wouldn’t want to stamp over it’s so pretty. I love the mix of shifts that the flakies go through too and the holo is juts super intense, I love it! Even just under my light box lights this polish just shines. Be sure to check out the bright light photo below!
It applied super easily and really it just glows! I’m going to have to wear it again soon!

Eat Sleep Game Cuff

Shop | Facebook | Instagram

Description: 1/4″x6″ aluminum cuff hand-stamped with “Eat Sleep Game” and some gaming symbols! All my aluminum is lead and nickel free. The cuffs are stamped by hand with a hammer and will all differ slightly (because I’m not a machine!). Cuffs are one-size-fits-all, so you can bend them slightly to fit with no issue.
Price: $15.00 USD
Cap: 50
Inspiration: Not any particular indie game, but just the gamer culture in general!
Ingredients & Size: 1/4″ x 6″ Aluminum Cuff in a 3.25 x 2.25 x 1 (jewelry box)

Profound Sass has returned for May’s box with a fabulous cuff bracelet! I am so excited to see different jewelry pieces each month because that’s just super fun to mix things up. 😉 This cuff is so perfect for the theme though. I love that the maker went with a more general inspiration so that it can represent *any* indie game.
The cuff itself is smooth to the touch–there are no sharp edges. It feels sturdy but it was easy to close it a little bit tighter on my arm, so definitely don’t be afraid to adjust it if needed. Just make sure you don’t pull it apart or close it too much!
The hand stamping is fabulous and I love that the color is purple, I’m pretty biased though because I love purple!
This is just a fabulous piece and I think I’m going to even try wearing this one to work! We have a business wear dress code, but I think it will still work! 😉

I am in flakie HEAVEN! This sweet little polish applied super easily and there is no texture after one coat of top coat. But seriously, this polish is precious. It’s as precious as the game looks! It is the perfect shade of blue and the mix of the different flakie colors has me really ready for spring and warmer weather (but also I’m ready for fall still….I do enjoy the cold….I guess maybe I just don’t like summer….). The flakies do shimmer and shine when in direct light, but that is definitely more prominent in person!
And like always, I am obsessed with this polish matte because of all the flakies!

Indie Game Information
Purchase the game – Oxenfree: https://nightschoolstudio.com/oxenfree/ (Available on Steam, Switch, Xbox, PlayStation)
From the overview section on Steam:
Oxenfree is a supernatural thriller about a group of friends who unwittingly open a ghostly rift. You are Alex, and you’ve just brought your new stepbrother Jonas to an overnight island party gone horribly wrong.

So funny enough, I actually saw the trailer for Oxenfree 2 before I really knew about the original first game. I am slowly realizing as I write this blog post that I really need to play more indie games! This one looks spooky, but I think I might still try it out! It looks very interesting!

I really need to play Oxenfree now because if it’s anything like this polish, it has got to be awesome. I really love jellies and this dark navy color mixed with the red and orange of the flakies is just perfect! It applied very easily and dried very well, even after doing 3 coats!
I do want to mention a trick I discovered if you are finding yourself not able to get many flakies off the brush and onto your nail (I didn’t have this problem for this polish, but I used the trick to get way more flakies than I needed on my nails haha!). When applying polishes with flakies, shards, or glitters (in general), if you hold the brush as close to flat as possible on your nail when pulling it away from your cuticles, I have noticed many more flakies, shards, etc. remaining on the nail. 🙂 I used that technique for this polish for my first coat because I wanted ALL THE FLAKIES on my nails. There were definitely plenty there that were visible after each coat, but I guess I’m greedy. 😛
I also used one coat of top coat for these photos and I didn’t feel any texture after only the one coat. And matte, this is especially stunning–I will always love seeing a matte top coat over flakie filled polishes.

Well I am pretty biased about loving this polish because I LOVE SILVER. And I may have helped name it…..So there’s that too. Now I do want to mention that I hope I was able to capture the blue / green shimmers! They are so pretty in person, and much easier to see in person than capturable on camera I think. My low light photos may help you see this part of the polish just a little bit better!
The description states that this polish is opaque in 3 thin coats, but I stopped at 2 coats for my swatches. I thought it looked just fine with only 2. I also only did one coat of top coat, and after a little bit of time and the top coat drying, there was some texture there, so you might want to do 2 coats of top coat or use a glitter grabber, but the little bit of texture didn’t bother me. Once I added the matte top coat there was no texture at all.
I also like this polish alone quite a bit, along with as a topper. I think it looks fantastic over teal! And for some reason, I wanted to see it over silver! Please don’t ask why. It really just blends in with it haha! But be sure to check out my nail ring photos below for a look at this polish over a few different colors. 🙂

Price: $4.50 USD
Cap: No cap
Size: 3.0 ounces
Inspiration: Bendy and the Ink Machine
Ingredients: Parasoy Wax, Fragrance Oil, Colorant

Indie Game Information
Purchase the game – Bendy and the Ink Machine: https://joeydrewstudios.com/batim (Available on Steam, Switch, Xbox, PlayStation)
From the overview section on Steam:
“Bendy and the Ink Machine™” is the first person puzzle action horror game that will forever ruin your childhood love of cartoons.

Oh no no no this game is too spooky for me! This reminds me of Amnesia and the dang PT demo where you walk through the house on repeat. NO thank you! But I mean, it still looks like a cool game. 😉 It’s just not for me.

Tonshi has created yet another wax masterpiece this month! The way the “ink stains” melt is SO dang cool. I included a short video below so that you could see it for yourself!
One of these squares is plenty for a super solid throw and a few melting sessions I would say. It melted super easily and I really just can’t get over how cool this one looks. It matches the inspiration perfectly!
As for the scent, well this is a *super* interesting one folks!
I definitely pick up flowers and trees and outsoorsy-ness. I think I pick up a decent amount of jasmine and sandalwood maybe? There is definitely that incense scent to this one too and it’s a little calming honestly. But to be honest, it may be a little hard for me to pick apart this scent. This is definitely a very outdoorsy scent that just feels sort of clean. There isn’t really much sweetness to it, at least not to me, but it’s also not bitter or harsh. It doesn’t remind me of like a rain forest, there isn’t really a water scent to it, but rather a nice forest of trees seems to be a good descriptor.
I will say if you like chill outdoorsy scents that don’t smell too sweet, this one is definitely for you.

I have listed out some of the individual scent descriptions from the Tonshi site below:
Luna Scentsy Type: Jasmine, Sweet Pea, Freesia, Amber, Berry, Incense, Sandalwood
Pine: The pure pine scent you love of a Christmas tree in the woods on a snowy evening (There is definitely a hint of pine here)
Jasmine: A heavy white floral that’s not overpowering (I definitely pick up florals)
Sweet Pea: BBW Type. Sweet Pea, Pear, Raspberry (one of my favorite BBW scents funny enough!)
Freesia: This is a clean, fresh floral. Not too “flowery,” with a delicate crispness to it
Sandalwood (from Google): Sandalwood is a deep, woody scent and often smells like a mix of floral, rich, balsamic, soft, and sweet accents

I also like to always mention to check out the “melt after” date just to make sure you’re melting the wax once is it ready to be melted! I haven’t had an issue melting before this date, but I am sure the maker knows what they are doing. 😉
