I also used a peel off base coat for the swatches this time, so unlike my past posts, I cannot comment on the wear or ease of removal of the polishes below.
Another weird fact about me is I normally do not use a peel off base coat! I prefer to wear each polish for a day or more using a normal base coat because I am just more comfortable with that. So I am still getting used to using a peel off and I hope that these pictures still do each polish justice <3

Now let’s get on to the fun stuffs!
(Items are in alphabetical order based on brand name)

Pac Man Vinyl Sticker

I. Love. Stickers. My Alex is covered and honestly I may cover it with stickers before I fill the inside up with polish! This Pac-Man vinyl sticker is the most adorable way to show off your love of retro games, and your love of the one and only puck man. It applied super easily and I show the application steps below!

Make sure that everything comes off of the back sheet and apply the sticker wherever you like! For me, I put it on my Alex!

Then grab something sturdy like a stamping plate or credit card and firmly scrape over the image (you can also use your hand to rub over the sticker!) so that it will stick after you remove the top sheet

Slowly remove the top sheet, and if anything remains stuck to it, just push the top sheet back onto the surface and rub over that part of the sticker again!

Alter Ego
Flippin Fun

Imagine this, you’re at the arcade and the jingling and loud metal clanks of one machine catches your attention. You see a silver ball flying around the board. Your eyes would probably follow that silver ball, right? Well, that is about how this polish goes! It is definitely an eye catcher!
I am very happy with this polish. I expected it to not be full coverage but after 3 coats it was! Like all holo polishes I will say there can randomly be thin spots or gaps where you can see the nail, but another coat can fix that easily. This polish applied like a dream and I definitely cannot wait to wear it again!

Bohemian Polish
Donkey’s Punch

You know those chewy banana candies? Yeah, I want some of those now. This wax smells amazing even before melting it and after, well, my kitchen smells B-A-N-A-N-A-S (thanks Gwen Steani). Two blocks is plenty and the throw of the scent filled my entire kitchen. I bet you could even get away with using one square to fill a room with the scent, and then you get even more uses out of this wax block!

Description: Have you ever wondered what Donkey Kong did with all of the bananas he took back from King K. Rool? We here at Bohemian HQ have a theory – we call it Donkey’s Punch. It’s a potent banana daiquiri blend, designed to knock you off your feet! (Must be of legal age to consume, keep out of reach of Diddy and Dixie Kong.)

Chirality
Tonal Shift – Mega Vitamin Bonus

This is my first time using an acetone additive because I’m crazy and like to use not 100% acetone to remove my polish because I guess I have a lot of free time! For this first time, I grabbed one of my mostly full bottles of Target Up & Up brand 100% acetone to use. I am very impressed with this acetone additive. It’s now false fall in the Midwest (winter, but before winter, and tomorrow it will be 80 again) and if I were to use 100% acetone, well, you can see how much it dried me out below. I used acetone with and without tonal shift in the same night and there was very minimal skin-drying-out after using the acetone with the tonal shift in it. I plan on using the rest of the bottle and seeing how I like it. This may be a new constant for me!
The scent is very nice and reminds me of something I smelled at the candy store before, like smarties or something like that, but I really can not put my finger on it!

UPDATE: I used this product throughout all of my swatches and even in between pictures and it did not dry out my skin! I did not have to sit for forever and wait for cuticle oil to soak in between pictures because of how well it worked. I am very happy with this product and may even start using it regularly (after I finally finish using my hoard of non 100% acetone of course).

Description: A moisturizing additive for acetone to make nail polish removal less harsh on your skin and nails. Formulated with the same skin loving oils as Soften Your Tips Nourishing Cuticle Oil, Tonal Shift will add a moisturizing touch during polish removal. Mega Vitamin Bonus is a fruity and floral mix with notes of peaches and raspberries sitting on top of green apples with a kick of extra sweetness
Instructions: Just shake the bottle of Tonal Shift to ensure all the nourishing oils are mixed. Pour the entire bottle into 6-8 ounces of acetone. Then swirl the acetone bottle to mix

Colores De Carol
Lone Starfighter

Dododododododododo do do do do doooo pew pew pew wooooo wooooo pewwww pewwww. Okay now you are totally thinking Galaga, right?! Probably not, but this next polish from Colores De Carol brings all of the colors from the classic arcade game and just throws them in glitter form into a black jelly base creating one fantastic polish.
Due to the glitters and jelly base, this polish is a little bit on the thick side. I would say that’s just the normal nature of this type of polish though. I was still able to get the polish to lay flat and even, even with the glitters which is pretty impressive! I love how many colors are in this one and I cannot wait to use it again for some sort of fun mani with some stamping!

Color Spectrum Polish
Tetris Top Out

I’m getting sweaty just thinking about this polish. WHY ARE THE BLOCKS FALLING FASTER AND FASTER?! When will it end?! Okay, okay, this polish doesn’t actually stress me out, but the brick laying-matching-nightmare game just might!
I believe a little nail line will always show through under this polish unless you use an undie, but that’s okay! I am impressed with how the glitters laid down while applying it and there is so much glitter you will definitely not have an issue getting some on every layer you apply. This polish would definitely make an amazing pond mani!

Fangirl Polish
Wood and Water Rage

I have not played this game before but I am always a fan of Fangirl’s magnets! This particular one holds 5-6 sheets of paper and will not let you, or your fridge paperwork, down. The magnet as a whole also feels pretty sturdy and it definitely goes with my collection of other lovely pieces from Fangirl! I am also loving the Polished Gamers name label on the back! Now I will always remember it came from the Polished Gamers box!

Description: Grab your skateboard, surfboard, Ray-Bans, and slather on the sunscreen so you can surf all day and rage all night with the Da’ Boys. Thrilla Gorilla, Joe Cool, and Tiki Man are catching a wave and thrashing the pavement on this magnet featuring the cover art from the 1988 NES game, “Town & Country Surf Designs: Wood & Water Rage”, with a few added epic tweaks. This magnet is resin coated and a small, but mighty, neodymium magnet on the back

Geekish Glitter Lacquer
The Vampire Killer Sugar Scrub Soap

I had the pleasure of getting to test out Lexi’s Sugar Scrub Soap before it was released and I have loved using it ever since! It’s very smooth and leaves a faint scent after use–nothing too overwhelming which is nice. It foams up quite a bit and left my hands feeling super soft and moisturized. It’s not too chonky, or all sugar, or all whipped soap–it is a nice blend of both.
Also this scent is something. It’s like walking through the fruit section at the grocery store. It very much smells sweet and tart, just like the goji berry and blood orange mentioned in the description (because everyone knows what those smell like, right?!).

Description: Don’t venture into Dracula’s territory unprepared, Belmont! This is a thick whipped sugar scrub soap scented in a blend of tart and juicy goji berry, mixed with deep blood orange that will have you ready for Castlevania!

Indie by Patty Lopes
Endurance Circuit

Here is another game I have not played before but if it inspires this cool of a polish, then I should play it someday!
At first I was worried the polish was too thin, but after a single coat, I realized that it being thinner helped me to move the glitters and flakies around to wherever I wanted! The formula was nice and this polish has a nice even spread of extra glitters and flakies when applying it and as you can see below, my fears of it being too thin were silly. I really like the color scheme with the mixed glitters and small flakies as well!

Jewelry by RPF
GITD Lime Green Necklace or Necklace and Earring Set based on Centipede

This jewelry set is pretty dang cute. The color scheme matches the inspiration photo perfectly and the shift and shimmer are fantastic! The size of the earrings was perfect and the necklace chain is a nice length so that it’s not too tight or too long. They can also almost light up a dark room they glow so much!
Note: If you have seen my previous posts with jewelry involved you know I have a bad allergy to most metals. I will admit, I only wore these for about 40 minutes because I was too paranoid to wear them for longer, but I did not notice any reaction in that time. The materials are listed below and definitely be sure to check that out and see if these will work for you!

Description: The necklace is a green glow in the dark pendant using a neon lime green with OG UP and UCC flakies that shift red, pink, gold and green. A gunmetal silver tone pendant base with a hand painted glass cabochon (each one will look a little different due to the hand painting aspect). It comes with an 18″ dark silver tone metal rolo link chain necklace with a lobster claw clasp. The pendant is about 1″ x 1″ not including a 1/4″ bale.

Also available is a necklace and earring set. You’ll get the same necklace as mentioned above. The earrings also glow in the dark and use all the same polishes with a 12mm hand painted glass cabochon. They are set in a darker gunmetal color and they come with a push back ear plug in the same gunmetal color. They are about 1/2″ long x 1/2″ wide.

K.N.I. Beauty & Bath
Atmos Cuticle Butter – Slice of Life (a pizza scent)🍕

This cuticle butter may be one of the most interesting things I have ever smelled. I actually took it with me to work because I was curious what others would think it smelled like. After about 10 software engineers all saying something different, I think everyone crowded around my cubicle was finally able to agree that it smelled like carrot cake or some sort of basic cake. It was then that I broke the news to them–that they were smelling pizza. I think that was them picking up the pizza crust scent that is definitely there. It has a hint of sweet to it, but you can definitely imagine sitting down to a slice of pie while you put this cuticle butter on. There is some tomato-y basil-y scent to it for sure!
As for how this cuticle butter works, well, I’m impressed. I used it after being out and about and washing my hands too many times, and after not using cuticle oil for ummm about 4 days. It went on smooth and after about a half hour it seemed to be mostly soaked in. I am amazed that it brought my poor cuticles and hands back to life!

Moon Shine Mani
Mario Circuit

Why did Mario cross the road?
Because he got hit with a DANG red shell and now it’s on like Donkey Kong!
Okay, my Mario Kart road rage may not be pretty, but this stunner by Moon Shine Mani sure is!
At first I was worried, thinking that this polish was on the thicker side and that I would have a hard time with its application, but I guess I was wrong! It is thicker due to the glitters and because it is a crelly, but it applied way nicer than I expected. The only issue I had was putting too many glitters on one part of my nail, but running the brush back over took care of that! It also helps that this polish has one of those amazing rounded brushes that I love and can’t get enough of.

Red Eyed Lacquer
Adventures of Captain Comic

This polish wins “hardest to capture its beauty” this month. There is a TON going on in this polish and I hope I was able to capture it for you to see (clicking on photos in my blog will bring them up to full size and you should be able to see things more clearly as well).
Della and Ashley both took photos of this polish with a varying amount of coats to show it with different coverages, and my photos may be closer to Ashley’s as I used 4 coats to get complete coverage.
I think this polish would be a fun topper over different colors as each coat is thin, while also jam-packing in flakies as far as the nail can see (ha). It applied very easily and was easy to work with!

Sassy Cats Lacquer
Yoshi’s Island

This polish brought back some fond memories of playing Yoshi’s Island, and also memories of all the guilt I felt after letting baby Mario float away in his bubble because I couldn’t rescue him and he wouldn’t stop crying and oh my gosh Kamek just let me pick him back up and….Anywhoooooo.
This polish applied super easily–two thin coats is all it needed. It transitions super easily and quickly, and the colors are gorgeous. The shift in the flakies is a lovely addition and compliments the colors nicely!

Treo Lacquer
Ms. Pac-Man

Waka waka waka waka waka waka waka. Waka waka. Waka waka? Waka.
Incase you don’t speak Ms. Pac-Man, that was meant to say how cute and fun this polish from Treo Lacquer is!
The colors represent Ms. Pac-Man perfectly and the thin-ness of the polish plays well with the glitters. It is really easy to place the glitters exactly where you would like to. There is a super fun hot pink / violet shift and as you can see below, you can show or hide the glitters however much you want based on how many coats you add, or how thick they are as well!

Description: A bright pink jelly filled with contrasting sunshine yellow dots and mini hot pink flakies that flash violet

Venus Lacquers
Ready for a crazy ride?

Luckily I have never played this game because I feel like it would set off my video game road rage…Or maybe that’s actually the point of the game? Maybe I will find out some day!
This polish applied like a dream (very smooth and creamy) and it was easy to manipulate the glitters and get them to lay where I wanted. Honestly my first reaction was “oh no, a yellow, I just never wear yellows” BUT after applying it, I really liked it! The contrast of the black and red glitters in the yellow is nice and I definitely see myself wearing this one again in the future! It is not too crazy bright and didn’t make my hands look abnormal either!
