How to pack nail polish for shipping

If you are moving house, or shipping nail polishes to customers or other businesses, follow these simple instructions to transport your nail polishes safely:

  1. Ensure each lid is closed tightly to avoid leaking during transport
  2. When sending multiple nail polishes, wrap each glass nail polish bottle with bubble wrap or several layers of paper
  3. Pack the nail polishes into Ziploc or plastic bags to avoid damage in case of a leak.
  4. When shipping a box of nail polishes, add a long piece of cardboard between each row and a smaller piece between each bottle to prevent them from touching and breaking when moved
  5. Add extra bubble wrap to fill the voids in the box.
  6. Seal with tape, ensuring sides are reinforced and the package is airtight.

FAQs about mailing nail polish and shipping manicure accessories

Is it legal to send nail polish through the mail?
Due to the chemicals that it contains, nail polishes, gels, varnishes, removers and lacquer are considered restricted or prohibited items since they are flammable liquids. Even so, since they are small items, many people still decide to send nail polish through the mail every day, at their own risk. In this case, proper packaging is even more important since the shipping insurance is not valid when shipping prohibited goods.
If you wish to ship nail polish to Canada, Australia or anywhere else internationally, please check carrier restrictions relating to the specific countries carefully or talk to our experts before deciding to ship.
How can I import nail polish or send nail polish as a manufacturer or supplier?
When organising transport as a company, the best way of shipping nail polish is through a transporter with the necessary certificate/authorisation to perform such a service. Each carrier may impose different restrictions regarding the volume allowed per load when shipping and importing nail polish internationally. Bear in mind you must comply with customs regulations when shipping between countries that are not part of the same trade zone.
In case you wish to import nail polish in bulk, get in touch with our logistics experts and they will help you find the safest and most efficient shipping solution for your items.
What is the cheapest way to ship manicure tools and accessories?

How to pack and ship nail polish for moving?
When packing nail polish for moving, it is important to pack each glass separately and make sure you insert them into plastic bags to protect the rest of the shipment in case of a leak.
Can you ship nail polish via courier with USPS, FedEx or DHL?
Most couriers include nail polish on their list of restricted or prohibited items, which means that it is not allowed to ship them. For example, DHL, TNT and UPS will not ship packages that have nail polish within the content. Due to its flammability, it is essential that shippers provide appropriate packaging and protection when shipping nail polish by courier, even if they ship it at their own risk.
Take into consideration these guidelines when shipping nail polish. Nevertheless, please consider that following them does not guarantee that the courier company will transport your package without restriction.
