Hello lovely readers! It’s been a hot minute! I’m typing here, so you know what that means! Destash time!! I’m having a baby in 9 weeks!!! YES! NINE WEEKS! I can’t believe it myself! I need to make room you guys. Like, BAD. Swatching has taken a backseat with this pregnancy kicking my butt and these tubs and totes of nail polish need to GO, I need room for baby stuff haha.

This year is pretty similar, though this time I’m also offering up mystery boxes. These are SUPER cheap you guys. They’re polishes from over the years: a mix of press samples and my own personal purchases. I can’t keep all this around and I super need to make space for the new baby. Please note this destash is limited, and I will be donating what doesn’t sell in the next few weeks. I’m aiming for 3-4 weeks at the latest. Am I retiring fully? I’m not sure yet. I just know it’s hiatus time since swatching makes me feel faint and swells my feet (oh the joys of motherhood).

Per usual, I’ve got some rules. Please read this to know what to expect. This time my wonderful husband will be helping me answer emails and send invoices over the next few days so please be patient with him (us) while I am at work on the weekdays. We will go by email timestamps for fairness.

***

PLEASE READ/DISCLAIMER/RULES

All polishes in this post are press samples (some are purchased by me too), so please note they have all been used for a four finger swatch. This is a pet friendly, smoke-free home. Your bottle will come cleaned and wiped down with alcohol, the neck will also be cleaned and your bottle will be shaken up to ensure they are ready for your use. Since I am still going through my personal collection, some of these are much older. These will also be cleaned and shaken up to the best of my ability.

  • USA addresses only at this time please. Make sure your address is correct on your Paypal account. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST OR STOLEN PACKAGES. ONCE I HAVE DROPPED YOUR PACKAGE AT THE POST OFFICE IT IS NO LONGER MY RESPONSIBILITY.
  • I am accepting purchases through email only at this time. The last three years got a little hectic for me with multiple claimings through Facebook PMs, blog commenting, and emails so I want to ensure what you claim is available for you. I will go by time stamps on your email. Please include your Paypal email address so that I can invoice you.
    • My email is: thepolishedmage@hotmail.com
  • All polishes listed in this post (not including mystery box prices) are $8.
  • I pack your polishes in bubble wrap, and more bubble wrap. I have yet to have any break over the years of me doing this. If any arrive broken, you have 24 hours to email me a photo of the broken polish and I will refund you.
  • A lot of polishes are blogger batches that are not named. Some won’t have a label. I will note which ones have this.
  • Shipping is $4.75 for one polish, and 0.50 cents for every bottle thereafter. Those with larger orders may be eligible for priority boxes, at that time I will let you know the cost of the standard box I will use.
  • I do not accept holds for polishes. Invoices must be paid within 24 hours, otherwise I’ll go to the next request.
  • There are a few thermals in this destash, I do not guarantee that any still transition and in my preparation for this post, I have not checked if any still transition.
  • The polishes in this destash have been stored in a cool, dark area. Some are 1-4 years old so please peruse my blog search function or google to ensure that fading has not occurred. Bottle shots in this post have been taken over the last few days so they’re currently what the polish looks like. If I have noticed that excessive fading has occurred, I will note it. I may not catch all from memory as I upload pictures to this post, so please keep that in mind. I am not responsible for faded polishes as I have done my best to store these properly. This post does include oldies that I have cleared from my helmer, so please note that especially on discontinued/older polishes.
  • Polishes that come in boxes: I have tried to keep them as intact as possible, however some have been a little squished in transit. Those that come with boxes will be shown in the photos below so you can also see their condition.
  • I will ship your polishes out within 5 business days. I anticipate this destash to be quite busy, so please be patient with me. I prefer to do bulk drop offs at the post office.
  • Polishes that are stricken through are sold. I will do my best to keep this post updated as soon as invoices are paid.
  • I will update this bullet list (right here) with shipping batches and any relevant updates.
  • Update 12/30: As of tonight *looks at time* 9pm central, this post is currently up to date with what’s available. You guys ROCK!! I will begin shipping asap and will continue to update here as I send out batches of packages. ❤
  • Update 12/31: As of tonight, this post is current with what’s available. Hubs and I are starting the first round of shipping labels tomorrow morning.
  • Update 1/4: As of tonight, unpaid invoices have been cancelled, and polishes have been marked as available for those that were cancelled. Also, the first BIG round of shipping has occurred and tracking has been added to ~60% of orders. I estimate ALL shipping to be completed tomorrow for those last few stragglers we didn’t get to tonight ❤
  • Update 1/5: More tracking numbers have been added to orders but we ran out of bubble wrap!! It’s almost 9pm here so I’ll grab some on my way home tomorrow and we will be fully finished tomorrow. Thank you all so, so much for your patience! (fun fact: we have cleaned, shaken, and packaged over 700 bottles for mystery boxes!! If you’re curious why its taken us a few days longer to get everyone’s orders out the door, that’s why haha SO MUCH bubble wrap woo!).
  • Update 1/6: More tracking numbers have been added! I apologize for needing one more day to wrap up the last few orders. Thank you all so much for being patient. We have the last few ready for shaking, cleaning, wrapping and lined up for tomorrow. I promise the next update will be that we are complete and everyone should have tracking numbers 😀
  • Update 1/17: I’ve updated the post with the last few orders from this week. I’ve had a few emails interested in purchasing the remaining polishes. Those who have already emailed me will be receiving an email this week with what/how we decide to do that to keep it fair for all that inquired. Thank you all so much for helping me clear all of this out. I’m so, so grateful ❤
  • Update 1/25: Alright, this is it. Everything remaining on this post is 50% off so $4 a bottle. I’m deactivating this blog as of February 1st so if you’re wanting anything grab it now as anything leftover we will be donated to a local charity. Thank you all so much!
    • I’ve updated once again with what is remaining. I’ll be gathering some more bubble wrap and getting these out asap. ❤
