Q: I am trying to pay for my purchase but when I am redirected to PayPal the total showing is different than what was showing on the Girly Bits Cosmetics site. Why is this?
A: The Girly Bits Cosmetics website is programmed to pick up the location for most countries and will show the pricing based upon that country's currency. Since we are a Canadian company, once you are redirected to PayPal you will be shown the pricing in Canadian funds. The discrepancy that you are seeing is the exchange rate difference.
Our invoice will show you the Canadian rate, however you will notice your country's currency equivalent is what will be debited from your account.
NOTE: the exchange rate fluctuates during the day so, depending upon when the exchange rate was pulled for the day there may be a small discrepency betweent the exchange rate charged by PayPal and what you saw on our site.
Q: I really wanted to purchase one of your polishes but it is sold out on your site. Is there any where else that I can purchase Girly Bits?
A: Girly Bits Nail Lacquer is carried all over the world! You can always check our Authorized Distributors for stock on your favourite Girly Bits Nail Lacquer. Visit their sites for product availablity, release dates, pricing and shipping information.

A: Shipping times vary depending on the shipping option chosen upon checkout. Read more about shipping times and options by choosing a destination:

Our turn around time is typically 3-5 business days (excludes weekends and Canadian holidays). Turn around time for orders begins the business day following the date the order was placed.

Q: How do I know if you ship to my country? And how much will it cost?
A: As a general rule we will ship anywhere in the world. The only country that we have had reported problems with is Italy.

Q: How are my countries customs and taxes charged?
A: As per our Terms & Conditions, for our International customers, any customs or taxes incurred on your order when it enters your country will be your responsibility. Generally, your mail service provider will collect these fees before you receive your package.
As all countries have different customs limits, if you are concerned that you will be charged customs or taxes we ask that you research your countries limits before placing an order. Your local border or customs services should be able to assist you.
Q: I am interested in making my own nail polish but am having trouble finding information on the internet about how to get started. If there are any pointers that you could share it would be greatly appreciated.
A: Unfortunately there are no clear cut directions on making polish. It is a trial and error process that requires a great deal of patience. (Time and money as well if you are looking to make a living of it!)
We also sell a good variety of Franken Supplies to help you get started. Have fun!
Q: How do I know if your glitter is solvent resistant in the nail polish base that I use?
A: All Girly Bits glitters are listed as solvent resistant based on extensive testing done by us and according to the manufacturers conditions. As it is not possible for us to test every glitter in all nail polish bases that are manufactured it is strongly recommended that customers perform testing to ensure solvent resistancy in their own bases. Girly Bits cannot guarntee the performance of our glitters in all situations.
Q: I am a blogger and I would love the opportunity to review and blog about your polishes for you. How do I get added to your list?
A: If you are a blogger (including on FB, IG, etc.) or a Vlogger interested in more information on how to be contacted to receive Girly Bits products for review please fill out our Press Kit contact form.
