Hm, TBH, I found the site kind of tough to browse. I hadn't heard of any of the brands, but in order to browse the offerings, I had to shop by "collection." So I assumed llarowe was mainly for people who really knew their brands and colors.

BTW, having shopped for polishes online now, I have learned to appreciate hand modeling in a new way. I found it essential to see the polish on hands - I don't see how the brands with only pics of the bottles sell anything!

@Lyanna our brands are mainly independents (called Indies). There are a couple of mainstream ones like Color Club and Model's Own but we concentrate on niche and indies from around the globe so our customers are real lacquerheads immersed in the polish world. :lol: :laughing-rolling:

I love all these polishes. I'm so tempted to get more even though I STILL have only used 2 out of the 10 I bought. Keep these pictures coming, I enjoy seeing them. So I think the nail polish rabbit hole is waaay cheaper than the makeup and brushes ones.

I am totally with you on that. It is so much easier to indulge yourself with a number of lemmings in the NP department :laughing-rolling:

Bea, since USPS seems to be hopelessly slow, can you recommend different postal service? Llarowe shipped on the 22nd of October and reach Los Angeles on the 25th at 8.41 pm. And it has been there ever since which is now 7 days.
I wanted to order more nail polishes the minute I had placed my order, but it is really demotivating when the US postal service is so bad. It is almost like a third world country.

Can you recommend something that works faster for future orders?
Do you know if I can do anything regarding my current parcel in transit?

There really isn't any other postal service in the US except USPS Jeanette. They have been really good until the past few weeks. it's a really odd occurrence what is happening with them at the moment. I don't anticipate it lasting. They sent me another package after the one that took several weeks to get to me and I got it in about 8 days which is the norm for USA to Canada. First class shipping takes up to 15 days. It has been 10 days since your package shipped and that is including weekends. An alternative would be UPS and that cost the earth as you've seen. You might try selecting USPS Priority International but that would double what you paid for shipping in your original order so that would take you to about $40+ if you ordered about $100 worth of polish.
