For the final installment of Black Owned Beauty Brands in honor of #BlackHistoryMonth, I wanted to highlight a nail polish company. Nail Lacquers are my favorite cosmetic product to collect, and yet I hadn’t heard about this company until very recently. Mischo Beauty is a luxury cosmetics brand with an emphasis on nail polish with no toxic chemicals. Founded in 2011 by Kitiya Mischo King, Mischo Beauty is a thriving beauty brand with high potential to become on of the premier BOBBs on the market.
An excerpt from the Mischo Beauty website reads “With the recent consumer concerns about nail lacquer chemical formulations, Mischo Beauty assures that its formulation has always been 8 FREE, which means it contains no Formaldehyde, no Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), no Toluene, no Formaldehyde Resin, no Camphor, no Ethyl Tosylamide, no Xylene and no parabens – all ingredients that have been known to contribute to cancer, birth defects, reproductive issues, nausea, light-headedness, headaches and more. The fashion-forward, and health-conscious lacquers are better than ever! With a smooth, chip-resistant formula, the award-winning nail lacquers offer long-lasting shine in the most current colors. They’re vegan, cruelty-free, and, of course, 8 FREE.”
You can purchase Mischo Beauty polishes as single lacquers, or as a set with a base and topcoat. Kitiya’s current collection is titled “The Year of Yes” which is a title of writer/producer Shonda Rhimes’ latest book. The collection features beautiful, on trend, nudes as well as a gorgeous blue shade. What I enjoy most about Mischo beauty polishes is her packaging. The formula seems similar to that of Julep or other high end, chip resistant, one coat polishes. But the packaging is unique. Sleek, chic, minimal, and functional. This polish fanatic couldn’t as for anything more! Visit the Mischo Beauty website to purchase from her latest collection and her most recent releases. Quantities are limited, so get them while you can!
