Hey guys just a quick post tonight, I have a question for everyone!
So, I am really starting to think about starting a polish line. I love looking at all the indies and reading their blogs, and it just seems like so much fun, and a really wonderful way to connect with other polish addicts out there. I have seen a number of indie makers that even donate some of the proceeds of their polishes to charity which I think is awesome! I often day dream about what I would call my line if I had one, and the different collections I'd make, and even which animal shelter I would want to donate to. Right now I am living at home and do not have the money or space to start it up. But I plan on moving in a few months, so I have been thinking more seriously about my own line.
Here's the problem. When I had my 100 post giveaway, I mailed the winner her 3 polishes and 1 loose glitter. I went to the USPS but they turned me away and told me they could not ship polish. So I had to use FedEx which charged me $12 to ship them! I know from indie stores that its only costs about $4-5 to ship 3 bottles of polish.
So my question for everyone is how do you ship your polishes? I don't want to charge my buyers $12 for shipping, that is insane! I know most of you either have indie lines or have held giveaways. I would know to know how you guys ship your polishes so cheap. Who do you use to ship? Do you lie and tell them its not nail polish? HELP! Any input would be appreciated!
Thanks every one!
