Posting Polish in the UK

Hello ladies.  I just discovered that the Royal Mail have relaxed their restrictions on posting nail polish in the UK for personal customers.  In case you also missed this news here's the skinny:

Nail polish has been added to the 'Restricted Goods' list, the relevant section is copied below...

" Nail varnish, polish and gel (solvent and water-based) :
Volume per item must not exceed 30ml. No more than four bottles of nail varnish can be sent in any one package. Bottles of nail varnish must be placed in strong outer packaging and be so packed, secured or cushioned in such a way that they cannot break, be punctured or leak their contents into the outer packaging.

An ID8000 label must be applied ( see example ID8000 label). The sender’s name and return address must be clearly visible on the outer packaging.

These items must be presented at a Post Office® counter."

This is a relaxation of the previous rules which had said that personal customers could not post nail polish at all.  This change sees personal customers given the same posting rights as business customers.

Posting nail polish from the UK to international destinations is still banned for personal customers.
