Kleancolor Nail Polish Shopping at BeautyJoint

Kleancolor polishes are all over the net lately. I stopped holding myself back from purchasing them when Feline posted a bunch of photos wearing Chunky Holo Black. Now, how could I resist that? Yep, I placed an order at BeautyJoint and a little over a week later - here they are. Wanna see them?



They're all so pretty, aren't they? I made color drops (for my nail polish collection database) as well. Which one is your favorite?


And now about my experience with BeautyJoint online store.

I placed my order on July 2nd and it was processed on July 5th. I got a confirmation mail with the tracking number as well. I got my package today, so that means it took about a week. That's super fast, I got to admit. My initial joy ended when I smelled something ... That something could only be a Kleancolor nail polish smell (those of you who own a bottle or two from this brand know what I'm talking about). I opened the package in horror - which one is it? Which one of my pretty new polishes broke? As I managed to find my way through all the bubble wrap (yes, the polishes were very well protected) I couldn't find a broken bottle. And then I saw it. There it was. This:


At first I thought they didn't screw the cap enough and the polish leaked. 10 minutes and a lot of nail polish remover later I realized that my bottle, or better yet the cap of my bottle, has a defect. Look at the second photo (of 4 polishes in line) to see what I'm talking about.

It's obvious that this wouldn't happen if they didn't sell me a bottle of polish with a defected cap. Whoever is packing these polishes at BeautyJoint could have seen that there's something wrong with it. And now I'm not a happy little camper. Not at all.

I wrote an e-mail to their customer service, but there's no reply yet. I'll inform you once I do get it. IF I get it.

Other than that, I can see why everybody likes BeautyJoint. They're cheap, fast and they wrapped these polishes pretty well. Now I only wish to get this solved and to get a decent bottle of Concrete Gray that I payed for. That's it.

Now I need your help. Which one of these should I try first?

Thanks for looking!

  5. hey, i have a question, how much were your shipping costs? i cant find the shipping costs on their website. :)

  6. Oh noes! :/ Maybe Beauty Joint would be willing to send you a new bottle? Apart from that, I think this is an excellent web shop. And the funny thing is, I too thought something had broken or leaked when I got my first package, it WAS smelly. I opened in fear, just like you, only to find... No leaks, no breaks. O.o The packages are just... Smelly? xD

  7. @hi guys ;D: It was a little over 13 USD for 8 polishes. The shipping costs are calculated at the checkout, but before you confirm and pay for the order.

    @Feline: I'm still waiting for their reply. Yeah, I think they're great too. Apart from the weird bottle.

  13. This exact same thing happened to me, too, with KleanColors. I had ordered direct from the company, though. Two of my bottles came like your Concrete Gray. I was so sad! It's like the caps melted partially, somehow. It must be a manufacturing defect or something. So disappointing! I sent them pictures and they did send me replacements. One of the two replacements was fine and the other came melted and defective, too. Oh well. I give up! I hope it works out fine for you!

  14. Love the shades you chose. I have about 5 that I bought from Amazon. They were for a St Patrick's Day special. Fashionista and Chunky Holo Black are my favorites. Yep, I know that Kleancolor smell. I also got a defective cap with some of the polish leaking out. Thankfully it wasn't too much.

    I'm waiting for a package from a swap with Fashionista and Holo Chrome, more I was guessing if Blue-Eyed girl was so clos to Lippmann's across the universe, so... I can't wait for your swatches ;)

  20. Someone else posted on MUA regarding some Kleancolors (I don't remember if they ordered from the same site) and they had 4 bottles which leaked. The customer service guy would not replace them and was terribly rude, so for your sake I hope it's a different company! :)

  21. Holo chrome would be fun to see. I ordered my Kleancolors 3 weeks ago and they still haven't gotten here :( I'm beginning to fear my package is lost at sea!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Horror upon horror. Shipping costs the same as my order! Dilemma!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Nice haul! I nabbed 4 colors last week and have yet to swatch them, but I think I might get a few more this weekend. The pricing is great and they wrap the heck out of the with bubble wrap. :-)

  28. Ko sem videla tvojo objavo za te lakce, sem jih tudi sama hotela imeti. Naročila sem jih prav tako tam kot ti in me je ful skrbelo, da ne bo pri meni isto. Lakci so prišli celi in brez puščanja, samo je pa zanimivo, da so večina vsi laki bili odprti in pregledani, ker je bilo na vratu stekleničke nekaj zasušene barve, na eni celo na steklenički par bleščic. :S Z nakupom sem vseeno zadovoljna, samo sem malo razočarana, ker se mi pri nakupu novega laka še kaj takega ni nikoli zgodilo.
