Important Shipping Update

JANUARY 16, 2013
Dear Girly Bits Customers,

On Monday January 14, 2013 Canada Post made changes to their postal rates. This change has caused the shipping option on PayPal to be unavailable while updates are being made.

We process all of our packages for shipping through PayPal and have been unable to do since it has been unavailable. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

A good amount of the orders that were placed since we reopened on January 4, 2013 have been processed. Plenty of them are still sitting here waiting to be processed for shipping but we have been unable to do so since Monday afternoon. If you have not received a shipping confirmation, please assume that your package has been delayed.

We are going to begin manually processing the packages that are ready to go for shipping. This is a time consuming process due to the fact that we will have to physically write out each shipping label and customs form (a good portion of the orders to be shipped are being sent internationally and require a custom form to accompany the package.) We are estimating that this process will take approximately 4 business days.

If you have placed an order that is urgent (i.e. a gift) please email us at to let us know and we will do our best to locate your package and process it immediately. When you email us, please state the email address attached to your PayPal account as this is the easiest way for us to find your order.

Once PayPal shipping is up and running, we will switch back to processing the remainder of the packages for shipping that way. Processing packages through PayPal shipping should only take us one business day.

We will continue to update you on our shipping process on our Facebook page.

Thank you again for your patience.

Please see notes below about changes to shipping for US and Overseas customers.

US Customers

If you have received an update to your zip code in the form of an additional 4 digits to be added to the end, please go to PayPal and update your address accordingly.

We have been advised that failure to do so may result in a delay to your package reaching you.

Overseas & South American Customers

Effective January 16, 2013, due to postage rate increases, International Shipping on nail lacquer will no longer be available on our Big Cartel store. All orders placed before this date will be processed and shipped.

  1. Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
    with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
