It’s PGB time! This is going up late cause life is just not the best rn — for anyone, lets be real. But! It’s still going up! I’m so happy to show four items from the Diablo box, that these lovely makers sent to me for swatches! Diablo is a newer love of mine, my younger brother got me into it and I loooove it. I quickly became obsessed and played way too much lol. So, it makes me even happier to be able to show some goodies off from this month!
And I’m even more excited that one of those items is a Respawn! What is Respawn, you ask? Each month, five makers are able to bring back a previous box item! Which is awesome, especially if you missed past boxes!
1422 Designs – Rebellious Student
Inspiration: Li Ming fan art
Description: A dark purple jelly polish with added mauve-red-orange-yellow chameleon pigment
Thoughts: I love me some jelly polishes, so I knew I’d love this one right away. Plus, it’s vampy and shifty and just stunning! The inspo was captured beautifully. The formula is smooth and builds up nicely in three coats. I think my favorite part of it is the shifty pigment. The colors it shifts through just look so good against that dark purple!
LynBDesigns – Queen Succubus
Description: A blackened red to bright red thermal with red to gold shifting UCC flakies and holo micro shreds
Thoughts: LynB makes fantastic thermals, we should all know this by now. This one is no different! Plus, it is an easy two coater! You could possibly even get it opaque in one! I love both states, though the shifty aspects show better in the colder state but are still stunning in the warm state. The formula is a thicker one but not hard to work with, at all. Another inspo caught perfectly in a polish! I love it cause it gives me vampy and bright all in one lol.
Rogue Lacquer – Demon Hunter
Inspiration: Demon Hunter
Description: A metallic copper contrast shimmer with a creamy base and linear holo
Thoughts: I can’t get over how much I love this one! I love the contrasty shimmer. I love the linear holo. Combined in that beautiful base color? Obsessed. The formula is so smooth and this could also have potential to be one coat — if you work in thicker coats. The holo is more vibrant when dry. The inspo pic for this one was captured in a bottle. Love, love, love it.
*Respawn* Swamp Gloss – Tubba Nuka Too
Inspiration: Tub fulla Nuka
Description: A holographic chameleon flakes, UCC flakes and iridescent flakes swimming in a lightly tinted holographic base
Previous box: Fallout
Thoughts: And now the stunning Respawn item! Back in the Fallout box, Swamp Gloss brought Tubba Nuka and it sold out quick! Now, they are bringing it back but with a 2.0 formula! This one is even more packed with flakes and holo and it is stunning! I don’t have the original to compare — go to nerdlifenails.com and @smashlee1 on IG, to see my friend Ashlee’s comparison photos! The formula on this polish is insanely smooth and easy to work with, even with being packed full of goodies, and you will never have to fight to get any of those goodies out. It built up beautifully in three coats but I could have got away with two, to be honest. If you already have the original, I still think you’re safe getting this one! They are different enough and both stunning!
November’s Polished Gamers box will run from the 15th through the 20th, as it does every month. Preorder opens at 11:00AM PST / 12:00PM MST / 1:00PM CST / 2:00PM EST. There is a flat rate of $4 for shipping within the US and international shipping will be calculated at checkout! Shipping can be combined/refunded if you end up going back for more than one order. Turnaround time for shipping will be within 2-4 weeks after the preorder ends on the 20th. **Please remember that it may take a little longer due to the state of the world right now.** You do not have to purchase every item, unless you want to, but some items do have caps so you’ll have to get those ninja fingers ready!
