A England

Nope, no post about a swatch. It's more an information for you if you don't have a-england liked on Facebook.

update on your orders:
for all of you still waiting for a shipping note.
Since yesterday 25 January deliveries were delayed just because of the huge quantity due to the promo and we were dealing with it until we were told that Royal Mail (our carrier) stopped shipping nail varnish internationally. We are finding another solution but we had to put on hold the processing. For UK orders by next week we should be able to deliver them. We are working hard at this problem.
If you have an issue about the delay please email : hello@a-england.co.uk otherwise your packet will be sent as soon as this inconvenience is solved.
Sincere apologies for the disruption we suffer to let our fans down. Adina & Team ♥

Royal Mail changed their terms of conditions (and getting more and more strict) so you aren't allowed to ship nail varnishes, perfumes and aftershaves outside of the UK. Even if you're marking it as "cosmetics", they'll destroy it.


This includes mixtures of liquids or liquids containing solids in solution or suspension which give off a flammable vapour. Any liquid with a closed cup flash point below 60.5° C is prohibited e.g. acetone, benzene, cleaning compounds, gasoline, lighter fuel, paint thinners and removers, petroleum and solvents, certain alcoholic beverages, certain perfumes and aftershaves, varnishes and enamels including nail varnish.

If you're living in the UK and want to ship nail polishes to a friend in the UK, you're allowed to do that. Until the 15th July 2013. After that date you are just allowed to ship ~4 polishes per parcel and you have to label everything.

The postal operator has discussed the situation with UK authorities, and looks set to allow the sending of small consignments of some items currently prohibited by dangerous goods regulations.
The updated rules will come into affect for contract business customers on 14th January, 2013, and for consumers and smaller businesses on 15th July 2013.
Under the new rules, Royal Mail said customers would have to comply with quantity and volume limits, and ensure items are packed and labelled properly.

To sum up: Department of Transport, the Civil Aviation Authority and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency sucks. Because the Royal Mail changed their terms of conditions because of them.

Und noch einmal auf Deutsch. Adina hatte vorhin eine Nachricht auf Facebook gepostet, dass internationale Pakete gerade auf Eis liegen, weil die britische Royal Mail (das britische Pendant zur Deutschen Post) ihre AGBs geändert hat und von nun an keine Lieferungen, die Nagellack, Parfume, Aftershave, ... international verschicken wird, da diese Objekte leicht entflammbar sind. Selbst wenn es als "Kosmetik" gekennzeichnet wird, so wird die Royal Mail es trotzdem zerstören.

Wenn ihr euch gerade in GB aufhaltet und Nagellack an eine Freundin, die auch in GB lebt, schicken wollt, so könnt ihr dies zurzeit noch problemlos tun. Nach dem 15. Juli 2013 wird dies aber auch nicht mehr so easy-going sein, da man dann nur noch eine bestimmte Anzahl pro Flaschen verschicken darf (Es heißt es sind ungefähr 4 Nagellackflaschen.), aber dann auch nur wenn sie haargenau beschriftet und alles sind.

Kurzum: Das "Ministerium für Transport, die zivile Luftfahrtaufsicht und das Amt für maritime und Küstensicherheit" (Ich glaub, in Deutschland wäre es gleichzusetzen mit der "Bundesanstalt für Post und Telekommunikation Deutsche Bundespost",  der "Regulierungsbehörde für Post und Telekommunikation im Geschäftsbereich des Finanzministeriums".) ist doof. Weil die Royal Mail hat dies geändert aufgrund der Bestimmungen des obengenannten Ministeriums.
