Nicely Polished - Shipping & Packaging

We do not outsource our processing and packing, it is all done by ourselves in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire. This enables us to ensure that your orders are processed in a timely manner and packaged to a high standard. We always try to ship out order quickly on the same day of purchase if possible. Please contact us if you have any custom requirements beyond this information page.

All items will be DISPATCHED within 24hrs Mon-Fri (excluding bank holidays/pubic holidays). Orders placed after 1pm Monday-Friday (excluding bank holidays) will be dispatched the next working day. If your order is placed on a weekend or Bank Holiday the order will be dispatched the next working day.

We use a combination of Royal Mail and DPD Local to deliver our parcels within the UK. All international orders are shipped with DPD.

For orders within mainland UK:

Royal Mail 2nd class post aims to deliver in 3-5 working days and Royal Mail 1st class post aims to deliver in 1-3 working days but is not guaranteed to arrive within these time frames. If next day is required please choose the Next Day Express delivery option at the checkout please note the Next Day delivery restriction outlined below.

If you decide to choose our Next Day service please be advised that we have a daily cut-off time of 1 PM. Orders placed before 1 PM will arrive the very next working day and orders placed after 1 PM will be dispatched the next working day to then arrive the following working day. Please note that orders placed on THURSDAYS AFTER 1PM will be dispatched on Friday and then delivered on Monday (which is the next working day). Orders placed on FRIDAY AFTER 1PM will be despatched on Monday to be delivered on Tuesday (the next working day). We do not offer Next Day delivery on the weekend.

For International delivery time frames please see Shipping Destinations, Times and Restrictions section below.

To note, we are closed on all bank statutory holidays and all orders will be dispatched the following working day.

Packaging: CND Shellac Only (UK mainland only)

Shipping is very expensive, and we have to stay competitive and have therefore decided to give our shellac customers the option of saving on shipping by dismantling the CND shellac boxes so they can be shipped in a large letter format.

Shellac polish orders of 6 bottles or more will be posted boxed in original CND retail packaging and upgraded to Next Day delivery with DPD FREE of charge for orders within mainland UK! (This does not apply to International orders)

Low volume CND Shellac polish orders of 1 -5 bottles will be posted with boxes disassembled without the plastic insert. Please do not worry they will be well packaged and protected! All other product types will be well packaged in a box, padded envelope or original packaging if applicable.

If you have a low volume order of 1 to 5 bottles of Shellac polish and you require they be left in the original box please choose the NEXT DAY shipping option. Then your items will be shipped fully boxed.

Packaging All other Products

All the products will be shipped in their original packaging. Low volume orders of 1 to 5 bottles of polish are usually sent in a large letter format. Larger orders are sent in their original packaging boxed in a parcel format.
