November 2021 Tomb Raider Polished Gamers Box

PR SAMPLE / PAID PGB EMPLOYEE

Do you think you’re the hero, Lara? (Of course she is!)
Get those adventure boots ready because this month’s theme is Tomb Raider! There are SO many fabulous items and polishes this month and we even have a few new makers joining PGB!

As always, first up is that sweet sweet FAQ then all the fabulous 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 ET on the 20th
The turn around time will be through the 20th of the month after the sale.
Example: The March PGB sale is March 15th – 20th, and the TAT would be through April 20th.
Shipping will not begin for approximately 3 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!

Ooooo goodness there are SO many flakies in this one! I am very much in love with the shade and really can’t get enough of this one! I love the amount of shift there is with all of the different shades of flakies and this polish on the nail just has so much depth! The various sizes of flakies too is great and really just adds so much to the depth. I really cannot wait to wear this one again!
It also applied super easily and I didn’t feel any texture after one coat of top coat!

Like Lara, you can find this Jade item at your first archaeological dig with your father! Or, actually, maybe you can just find this one at polishedgamersbox.com….
This Jade green decal was created to mimic Lara’s Jade necklace pendant that she wears in Rise of the Tomb Raider. It’s a great size, and perfect to fit in with all of your other gaming decals! Be sure to check out my photos below for application tips and tricks!

Your first step is to pick where you want to put this decal! I keep putting more and more AMUL decals together on my Alex drawers! I actually also picked a different spot than shown here because I’m trying to fit all of my decals in as tight as I can!

Then remove the decal from the white backing sheet. If pieces of the decal stick to the white sheet you can gently place the clear sheet back down over that piece of the decal and rub over it so it sticks to the clear sheet. Or you can gently push a finger nail under the decal piece that will not stick to the clear sheet and lift it up just enough so it is then stuck to the clear sheet.

Then place the clear sheet and the decal down on the clean surface you would like it on.
I haven’t had an issue with the clear sheet pulling up stickers already attached to my shelves, so I haven’t worried about getting the clear sheet on top of other stickers.

Grab a stamping plate or credit card and gently rub over the decal so that everything adheres to the surface you are sticking it on!

Then you want to gently peel the clear protective sheet away.
If you see something that doesn’t stick to the new surface and stays on the clear sheet, simply push the clear sheet back down and gently rub over that piece so that it adheres to the new surface.

Batty Trinkets

Description: Hunting knife keychain
Price: $13.00 USD
Cap: 30
Inspiration: Lara Croft and her Weapons
Ingredients: Resin, mica powder, flakes, copper
Size: Length is 6.5 inches with the chain the knife itself is 4 inches

This is Batty Trinkets’ second Polished Gamers Box and their first time in my blog! Now first up I want to say BE CAREFUL with this. hahaha! I feel like this is obvious, but plz be careful with this resin piece. It is a keychain, so you may have it with you, but it is not meant to be used as a real knife, nor any sort of personal protection device. This is purely decorative. There are some sharp edges though and you just should handle this one with care.
The piece is definitely well made! I love the giant flakes in it and the ultra shimmery grey handle! I’m also a huge fan of the teal plus the flakies–I just really like this shade. There are a couple accent pieces attached of a leaf and Bat for Batty Trinkets and those are just so cute! The whole thing is shimmery too which is a perfect addition!
The knife portion of the keychain is about 4.5 inches long, and the accent leaf is approximately 1.5 inches long.

This is a fabulous mix of shimmery colors! I am in love with the soft lilac mixed with a teal blue-green! This is definitely a lovely muted yet intense shade that can be worn alone or under some fab nail art! I just can’t get over the shift though. It is just so perfect. Honestly this shade feels like a sibling to the Night at the Arcade Polished Gamers Box shade from BCB. That one was also a perfect shifty shimmer and holo filled polish! I just think they pair nicely. <3
This polish also applied super easily and 2 coats was plenty for full coverage.

I love the mix of sizes and colors that they are. And the teal shift in low light is just perfection! I don’t know if I was able to capture the teal, but at extreme angles it was there! It is definitely easier to see in person. 🙂
This polish applied easily and I gave it a little bit of drying time in between coats and top coating just to make sure I didn’t smoosh it!

This polish is a one coater! I actually did 2 just out of habit. Everything laid down nice and flat and it applied super easily! I do love the random assortment of flakies and shimmer in this one! The gold and silver flakies mix so well with the burnt orange and almost sort of turn this strong color into something a little more delicate. I also love how the shimmer shows through and isn’t hidden by the polish color!
This polish is also amazing matte!

Be prepared to lose yourself in this stunning blue! Oh my gosh I could stare at my nails all day! This is such a gorgeous just, strong, in your face polish! Also the teal to aqua shift is more visible in person than in my photos I think. My camera doesn’t always work the best for greens/ some blues so I struggle with those from time to time. This is definitely one you’ll want to see in person ASAP.
The holo flakies are just amazing and I really don’t want to take this polish off. It applied super easily and 2 coats was plenty for full coverage.

Ummmm I love the formula of this polish. It’s almost like a jelly or crelly mixed, but sort of leans to be jelly-like. It’s like sticky as I apply it (not like a bad sticky) so the polish isn’t running all over my nails, and it isn’t goopy at all, and it is just so nice to apply. It just feels nice. I don’t know if I have applied a polish with a formula quite like this one before! But I am loving it.
I LOVE the color too. I am the biggest sucker for teal and the copper flakies (honestly I love the smaller amount of flakies in this one) and holo compliment this one so well. This is definitely one of my new favorites in my collection thanks to well, everything mentioned!

Profound Sass

“Do you think you’re the hero?” Rainbow Stainless Steel Necklace

Shop | Facebook | Instagram | TikTok

Description: This is one of my favorite quotes because, duh, she is definitely the hero! Each letter is individually hammered into a rainbow stainless steel pendant. The shades of rainbow will vary; if it is one of the darker variants, the text will be white. If it’s a lighter variant (as shown) the text will be black.
Price: $25.00 USD
Cap: 30
Inspiration: Tomb Raider – technically from an antagonist
Ingredients & Size: Stainless Steel (ion plated), 0.25″x1.3″ pendant on a 18″ Chain – 0.2oz

Profound Sass has done it again with this rainbow necklace! This ultra-shifty hand-stamped necklace featuring a quote from Tomb Raider is super fun and honestly could reference so many things! That’s another reason I love the Profound Sass items (especially from PGB) so much, because they all seem to be able to reference so many things! They’re all so versatile! And sassy of course. It’s a great combo!
This necklace specifically is a nice length and I felt like it sat nicely on me. I didn’t feel like I was going to be choked by the chain–but should you feel otherwise, I have a random necklace chain extender I purchased awhile back and that has helped with a couple chains I own that feel too tight. So I definitely recommend looking into those if needed. 🙂
I did wear the necklace for a few hours and I didn’t have any sort of reaction. I am allergic to metal, and I can wear stainless steel, but I’m usually still weary of coated / plated metals. But everything is different for everyone so just use your best judgement on what is best for you! 🙂

Squeaky Peach Soap

Aztec Gold Tri-Butter Soap

Shop | Facebook | Facebook Group | Instagram | TikTok

Description: Suds up with this adventurous blend of lavender, ylang ylang, honeysuckle, greenery, musk, and amber. This soap contains cocoa, mango, and shea butter to aid in nourishing the skin while cleansing
Price: $4.50 USD
Cap: 30
Inspiration: The gold relics collected throughout the series.
Ingredients: Aqua, Glycerin, Sorbitol, Sodium Stearate, Sodium Laurate, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Oleate, Sodium Myristate, Sodium Chloride, Glyceryl Laurate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Sodium Thiosulfate, Sodium Citrate, Titanium Dioxide, Citric Acid, Trisodium Sulfosuccinate, Pentasodium Pentetate, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Skin Safe Fragrance, Skin Safe Colorants

Squeaky Peach Soap has joined the battle! This fabulous gold relic is actually a soap! And because I’m guilty of it too, I want to mention to just use the soap! Don’t hoard it like I normally do! 😂
This is Squeaky Peach Soap’s first Polished Gamers Box so be sure to give them a warm welcome this month!

As for the scent of this soap, this is definitely an outdoorsy clean type scent.
I did have to look up a couple of the scent notes because I wasn’t sure if I had smelled them before:

Ylang ylang can be described as a deep, rich aroma that’s slightly sweet and floral. It brings hints of custard, jasmine, banana, neroli (bitter orange), honey and spice. It also bears characteristics of earthiness and greenery.
Honeysuckle can be described as fruity and warm with hints of honey and ripe citrus.

I think this is a well balanced scent! If I smell the soap just right out of the bag I pick up the greenery and musk, and probably the ylang ylang the most. There is a hint of sweetness, but I think everything just blends together so well I don’t pick up the sweet as much. Honestly this soap isn’t like anything I have smelled before which is a cool experience. This is one you’ll just have to pick up for yourself! The scent “throw” while using the soap is nice and I could smell it still after using it and rinsing my hands off! It wasn’t overbearing and was very nice.
The soap itself left my hands feeling nice and smooth. My photos below don’t show much lather because I took those photos in my lightbox because the lighting in my bathroom is terrible, but I definitely felt like I got enough soap on my hands and even with not much water, it still had a nice lather. The gold on the soap does wash off and some of the suds on my hands were pretty gold at first, but that did wash off and I definitely didn’t notice any sort of gold residue left on my hands after using it.

My swatches are 3 coats of polish and topped with 1 coat of glitter grabber top coat and 1 coat of top coat.

This is such a fun glitter polish! I actually did 3 coats just to make sure I had full coverage and to fix some of my own application mistakes, but you might be able to get full coverage in only 2 coats! I did also use a glitter grabber top coat because I just now out of habit use one with glitter heavy polishes. Everything seemed to even out pretty well on its own though so you might be able to get away with just a coat or two of regular top coat!
I do love how much depth this polish has! You can definitely see the individual layers of glitters and how they build up. There is also a little bit of shimmer on some of the blue hexes and I love that little extra detail (check out my low light bottle photo above)! There is also a very healthy amount of glitter in the polish so you will definitely not have to fish for any.

This is a wildly shifty polish! It’s honestly impossibly to say which color I see most. I suppose it might be the gold, but as soon as you move your nail at all, it shifts again. I would say the pink and gold are probably the colors I see the most when checking out my nails at “regular” angles. I also really love how this one looks matte. It’s definitely one of those polishes that may seem unassuming maybe at first glace, but nope it really packs a punch!
This polish applied ultra easily and went on nice and smooth. I bet it would make a fabulous topper as well! I do see some visible nail line I think from some angles, but it’s nothing crazy and does appear to have mostly full coverage.

Description: Scent Notes: Black Pepper, Lavender, Woodsy, Spice, Bergamot, Spice, Orange Zest, Cedarwood, Musk
Price: $4.50 USD
Cap: No cap
Size: 3.0 ounces
Inspiration: Tomb Raider – PlayStation 1
Ingredients: Parasoy Wax, Fragrance Oil, Colorant, Mica

WOOO! This wax will wake you up and have you ready for your next adventure!
This wax also happens to be filled with mica so get ready for a shimmery wax melting experience too!

This lovely bright outdoorsy scent is definitely pretty balanced but a little strong as well. Not in a bad way, but it will definitely make its presence known! This is going to be a favorite for those folks that like outdoorsy forest-y scents mixed with maybe like, a clean cotton-fresh laundry type scent? I think that may be a good descriptor. 🙂

I honestly can’t really pick this one apart. I *think* I pick up the cedarwood and musk and woodsy scents the most, but everything must blend together super well so I don’t pick up the other scents individually. There is a bit of a spice kick to this one, and the tiniest bit of a sweet hint to it, but it’s mostly the savory over sweet flavors I pick up. Actually can you even call scents savory? This wax doesn’t smell like food though I swear….and you definitely shouldn’t eat it! No eat!

And don’t forget, 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. 😉
