Sneak Peek + Shipping Stuff

Posted by Erin on 2/1/12.

I've been toying around with some new shades here and there over the last week or so. I have the concept for the collection down and one shade that I think needs little to no tweaking for it. Here's a peek:

The macro on my camera leaves a lot to be desired, but I think you can get an idea of it from this photo. It's a reddish orangish pink jelly base with fuchsia, red, orange, and burgundy glitter. I'm hoping I can get a recipe together for a yellow based lacquer for this collection as well. All of my previous attempts have failed miserably, but I'm expecting a new yellow mica in the mail that I *think* might work this time around. 

In other, not so fun news:
I am rather certain that I'll have to up my shipping prices on single lacquer orders. Not because I want to make money off of shipping costs (I lose money on them, tbh) but because I am losing TOO much money on them. 

Here is a breakdown:
It costs roughly $2.80 to ship one single bottle of lacquer via first class mail (the cheapest and slowest method). It costs another $.75 - $1.50  for the bubble mailers that I use to ship them (depending on where and when I buy them). So no matter what, it's costing roughly $4 to ship them. The issue is I only charge $3...

I'm really considering just shipping everything via the flat rate boxes and having the shipping price obviously reflect that. It's much easier and is a much better way to ship nail polish in general. We'll see :)

As always, I'm waiting on another shipment of lacquer base. I still have some Into the Labyrinth collections available, but everything else that I currently have is being doled out to those who contacted me for reserved listings. I am continuously amazed by how fast these lacquers sell!
