September 2020 Kingdom Hearts Polished Gamers Box

September Kingdom Hearts Polished Gamers Box

PR SAMPLE

Now before we begin, I want to admit to having not played the Kingdom Hearts games. I *really* want to though. I have never owned a PlayStation console, and even though the newest one is on Xbox and we have one of those, I would want to start at the beginning!
I have my fingers crossed that they release these games on the Switch or I may just one day buy a PS4 so that I can buy the full set of games that was released this year. Fingers crossed because these games look so amazing and I want to play them so badly!

Let’s jump into some of that sweet sweet FAQ!

My swatches below are three thin coats of polish over a peel off base coat and topped with a quick dry top coat. The brush holds a lot of polish so I think if you aren’t crazy like me (I get paranoid when I swatch–I’m super weary of getting polish everywhere right before taking photos so I swatch super slow and usually go for thin coats), you could probably get full coverage in two thicker coats. Everything laid down nice and flat and I only needed one coat of top coat.

Now this polish does have a sheer black base but all of it together leans brown for me, or at least to my eyes it does. I am shocked by the build up of everything in this polish though! There is so much going on and I love it! My favorite part is actually the green flecks. They look teal in this mixture and I am VERY partial to anything even remotely close to teal. 😉

My swatches below are three thin coats of polish over a peel off base coat and topped with a quick dry top coat. I had no application issues.
I did smudge my pinky a little bit while the polish was drying so I apologize for that being visible in the photos.

Oh boy. This polish is a stunner! Check out my macro photos to see the shiftiness just by moving my nail the tiniest bit! The flakies are stunning and I am just a huge fan of this polish. I really don’t know what else to say, but I think the photos speak for themselves. It helps that I love purple, but I cannot wait to wear this one again soon!

Jewelry By RPF – The King Inspired Necklace or Keychain

Description: This month there is a choice between mouse inspired necklaces or key chains.
They each come in your choice of color:
*The red items use Quixotic Polish Lei It On Me which is described as, “a flakie topper absolutely packed with stunning pink to gold to green shifting iridescent flakies” over a red jelly base.
*The white items use NeVerMind Polish Slendy which is described as, “a white polish with silver scattered holo and black flakes”.

The pendant is set in a 20mm silver tone, mouse inspired, zinc alloy metal setting in your choice of red or white. It is about 1.5″ wide and about 1″ in length at the widest spots. It comes with an 18″ zinc alloy metal silver tone necklace chain. It is all lead and nickel free.

The key chain comes with a mouse inspired key ring and is set with a 25mm round, silver tone, zinc alloy metal pendant setting in your choice of red or white, and a small chain connecting the two. It is about 4.5″ in total length and is lead and nickel free.
Price: $11.00 USD for each keychain or necklace
Cap: 25 red keychains / 25 white keychains / 5 red necklaces / 5 white necklaces
Inspiration: The King

Jewelry By RPF - The King

I was sent the red keychain to photograph (be sure to check out the site (when it opens closer to lauch) for more photos of all of your options!) and it is just so cute! It’s also not very heavy so it definitely will not weigh your keychain down. The mouse shaped keyring portion is actually fairly easy to open as well. I was sort of shocked since the separate pieces look to be a little thick, but it was easier than I would have thought! As I type this I keep looking over at it on the table next to me and I am loving the shifty flakies. They definitely do go from green to gold to pink!

Red Eyed Lacquer – Silly Old Bear

Description: A mustard yellow crelly with red / orange / green / gold shifting multichrome flakies and blue / green shifting flakies!
Price: $12.00 USD
Cap: 100
Inspiration: Pooh! Bianca’s oldest daughter’s favorite character is Pooh, so of course Pooh had to be the inspiration!

My swatches below are two coats of polish over a peel off base coat and topped with a quick dry top coat. I had no application issues.
For my matte photos I used Red Eyed Lacquer’s Tips Matte-r Matte Top Coat.

I think REL nailed this color! I was having a hard time finding the perfect creme in my collection to reverse stamp in Pooh, but I honestly could have just left him not filled in and we would have had some flakie filled Pooh nail art! I have definitely been anti-yellow polish in the past, but this one matte shocked me. I love how this polish is not too neon, and it’s very much perfect for fall! I actually do plan on using this one again!

Ummm. I don’t know if I have ever loved an orange this much. Maybe it is the teal glitters, maybe it’s the fantastic shimmer, maybe it’s the smooth formula, or maybe it’s all of that combined! This polish is seriously adorable and matches its inspiration perfectly! This is another that I cannot wait to wear again soon! I definitely want to add some teal stamping to go with the glitters!

Sassy Shark Charms – Sea Salt Ice Cream Magnets

Description: While in Kingdom Hearts this ice cream is a salty, but sweet snack, don’t eat this one! It’s pretty sweet looking though! There will be 2 random ice creams available.
Price: $6.50 USD
Cap: 40
Size: 2 in tall x 1 in wide
Ingredients: Epoxy resin
Inspiration:

Sea Salt Ice Cream

This is a thicccccccccc boi as the kids say. (I like to pretend I know the lingo). Now, I have not had the chance to play any of the Kingdom Hearts games (I have never owned a PlayStation console), but apparently this sea salt ice cream is very well known. After Googling it, I found TONS of recipes for it and it even had its own Wiki page! This magnet is the most adorable representation of it and there will be two randomly selected choices!

*If you purchase this magnet you will receive either the Popsicle with a bite taken out of it (pictured below) or a full Popsicle with no bite taken out of it (not pictured). This will be random and unfortunately requests will not be accepted. But they are both so very cute though, so I hope that you love both options!
