Black Dahlia Lacquer Mystery Bags Available Now!

Black Dahlia Lacquer has three mystery bags available now!

Black Dahlia Lacquer is again offering our annual limited edition custom Lucky Bags. Following in the Japanese New Year tradition of offering fukubukuro bags, or discounted mystery lucky bags, Black Dahlia Lacquer is offering customized Lucky Bags in three sizes.  

Lucky Bags may include any polish we currently sell on our Web site in either size, previously retired or limited edition shades, over pours of exclusive polish featured in collaborations (such as Polish Pick up or Hella Handmade Creations,) unreleased polish or prototypes, mystery polish, as well as top and base coats, and cuticle, beard or hair oil in current or unreleased scents. Some bags will also include gift cards worth $5 to $30. (Lasy year over half of all gift bags contained gift cards!) Each bag may contain more value and items than promised. Bags will contain different items and no two bags will be the same, even among Lucky Bags of the same size. Shipping is free for all bags shipped to US addresses. Flat rate international shipping is available.

We will make sure there are no duplicates if you order more than one bag. We do our best to customize Lucky Bags based on stated preferences left in the order notes whilst stock allows. Note that we may not be able to fulfill very specific requests, such as for polish of one particular color or finish.  Not sure what you’d like or hoping for a variety? No problem, simply skip the order notes section. Here are a handful of requests from prior years in case you’re not sure where to start:

“Love holos, anything blue and citrus-scented cuticle oil.”

“Prefer pastel shades, glitter top coats, don’t care for orange or purple polish and would love clear base coats.”

“My favorite polish colors are green and purple, prefer creams, especially ones I can use for stamping. I don’t like black or gray polish.”

 You can also note any preferred duplicates with multiple bag purchases. (Such as preferring to receive as many top coats or red polishes as possible, even if there are duplicates.)

  1. Ordered! I got the middle bag. It was tough to pick between this and the Zoya mystery bag, but I decided an entire order taking my preferences into account is a bit better than 6 items I personally select along with 9 randomly curated items.

    Plus, looking at the colors, Black Dahlia has a wider selection of colors that I really want. Zoya had a few pretty oranges I would love, but nothing much else that jumped out at me.

    We’ll see how it goes!

  2. I’ve never tried this brand, and the comments convinced me to give it a shot! I ordered the small bag to check them out. I did put in comments about colors I prefer, so we’ll see how it goes. Polish is my weakness. I don’t need any, but you know how that goes…

  3. I purchased one of their Lucky/Mystery bags a maybe two years ago and I was really pleased. I requested holos and creams with no nail oils – and that’s exactly what I received. I ordered a small bag and it contained 8 polishes – 4 smaller 8mL sized polishes, and 4 standard 14 mL bottles.

    If I didn’t have an insane amount of nail polish, I’d order from them again for sure.

  4. I 100% don’t need this…but I definitely want it! ^_^ So many colors and sparkles!
    I like that they offer some light customization on these bags while still keeping it all a surprise.

    Does anyone know if the formula is fairly quick-drying? I always seem to accidentally knock my nails against something while they’re still drying.

    • Yes, fairly quick, but not super quick like some polishes.

      • Awesome. Thanks for the info!

  5. I love indie nail polishes – this is a wonderful brand. They have a lot of beautiful and unique polishes and lovely cream polishes. This is probably a good way to get a number of their polishes if you do not already own it. I own quite a few from this brand.

  6. I ordered a small bag. I really wanted the large, but I am trying to save money and use up some of my current stash. These bags are always fun though, so I couldn’t resist!

  7. Fantastic indie brand! Good quality. I bought their last small mystery bag and was very happy. It came with very wearable shades and a cuticle oil.

  8. After browsing their colors I am pretty tempted. It’s so hard to find nice greens, and they have so many fantastic ones!

  9. For anyone wondering, it’s a good indie brand. I haven’t bought anything for a couple years, but I really do like the formula. The ones that I own still work great.

  10. It seems there’s lots of positive feedback on etsy. I personally haven’t tried the brand.

  11. Same question….anyone tried this indie brand?

  12. I know nothing of this brand. Does anyone have experience with their products? TIA
