NY SHELTER IN PLACE QUESTIONS (orders from 3/22/20 and on)

Q: I put an order in after 3/22 - will it ship to me soon?

A: Per NYC & NY state order, Floss Gloss is categorized as a non-essential business. As of 3/22 all non-essential businesses were ordered to close. Any polish orders placed after 3/22 will experience a longer than usual processing time ~ anywhere between approximately 5 - 12 business days. 

Processing time does not include shipping transit time. Selecting Priority Mail as your shipment method does not speed up your processing time. During the coronavirus emergency USPS is experiencing longer transit times & not guaranteeing Priority Mail shipping windows. If you haven't received a shipment notification then your order has not shipped.

Q: I would like to return something from a recent order. What should I do?

A: We are handling returns on a case by case basis. However, we are currently not accepting returns of product where the package was opened and merchandise interacted with.

Also, any orders sent to an incorrectly provided address or orders that are lost/stolen because they had been sitting at an incorrect shipping address are not refundable.

Pretty please double check and reach out to us ASAP if there is a shipping address mistake showing on your order confirmation. Please email with any questions.

Q: I live in the UK or France, when can I expect my order?

A: USPS has currently suspended any outgoing mail to these countries unfortunately. However, we are unsure of when USPS may lift those rules. You can choose to keep your order pending or request a refund.

Q: I just placed my order! When should I expect it to arrive? 

A: ** Since the beginning of January 2019, we have noticed an increase in transit time for USPS First Class Service overall, locally and nationwide. Please be advised that USPS First Class Mail can now take up to 14 business days. If you need a quicker turn around, please select USPS Priority Mail. Unfortunately, Floss Gloss is not responsible for slow or delayed transit times once in USPS’s hands.**

Orders are typically fulfilled within 1-2 business days. Orders placed on Friday, over the weekend, and on major holidays will ship the next business day. 

*During holiday season & when there are new releases or sales, it might take up to 3 business days to fulfill your order*

If you would like your order faster, please select USPS Priority Mail at checkout. Please note the processing time of 1-2 business day still applies.

Please refer to the chart below for approximate shipping times. This chart only displays the ship time that is in effect once the package is accepted by the USPS. The actual ship time might vary.

USPS tracking numbers are typically updated within 24 hours after the tracking number is created, so please hold tight! Should you have any other inquiry regarding your order and shipment, please email


Q: My order never arrived!

We are not responsible for lost or stolen packages. However, we will file a claim with the USPS. Please contact us at within a week so we can try to resolve the issue asap. We go by a case-by-case basis.
