1. an essential possession: the Mischo Beauty “Brave is Beautiful Collection” is the must-have fall nail lacquer
2. essential: a must-have luxe nail lacquer
Hi Dolls! You know I love beauty products and when I find a good one, I’m loyal. If you recall, last November I introduced you to Mischo Beauty, a luxe nail lacquer, after attending the DC launch of the line – Pretty New ~ Mischo Beauty Luxury Nail Lacquer. The inaugural line, Fashion Week, was so fab with colors aptly named The Tents, Front Row, Invite Only, and #NYFW that I wanted to check back in almost a year later to see what’s new in nails.
I reached out to beauty brainchild, Kitiya Mischo King, who graciously agreed to give us a peek into what going on with Mischo Beauty and fall nail trends. Peep the deets below.
PD. Last time we saw you was in November at the Washington, DC launch of Mischo Beauty. Tell us what’s been going on with your line since then?
K. We’ve been working tirelessly to grow the brand! We are now available at The Emerald Door (www.emeralddoorsalon.com) in Silver Spring, MD – which is our first retail account. We’ve also launched two new collections – “The Icons Collection” for Spring 2014 and “The Brave is Beautiful Collection” for Fall 2014.
PD. If I recall, Mischo Beauty Nail Lacquer is “5 Free.” Remind us what that means and why it’s important?
K. The term “5 FREE” means that the nail lacquer formulation does not contain the following toxins: formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, DBP, toluene or camphor. These toxins can cause some ugly side effects such as nausea, light-headedness, headaches, and more. They’ve even been linked to cancer and birth defects.
PD. Let’s get to what’s important. What’s on trend for nails this fall? Colors, shapes, lengths? Is the long pointy nail still in?
K. Our favorite trends for Fall 2014 include winter pastels, tonol dressing (from head to toe), metallics and knits in every variation (dresses, jumpsuits, jackets, pants, etc) and the new Fall 2014 collection pairs well with them all! As far as nail shape and length are concerned – yes, we’re definitely still seeing the “stiletto” nail!
PD. What about a couple of tips for maintaining healthy nails.
K. Our absolute favorite tip is the fact that a healthy body results in healthy nails! It’s important to make sure you’re exercising, maintaining a balanced diet full of green vegetables, drinking a minimum of 8 glasses of water daily, taking a multivitamin and getting adequate sleep!
PD. I know that all of the Mischo Beauty Nail Lacquer colors are your babies. But do you have a favorite? What are you featuring in your line for the fall?
K. Honestly, I love them all! The Fall 2014 “The Brave is Beautiful Collection” includes four new, daring, 5-free shades which are a tribute to the bold choices of women who curate fabulous lives in the face of challenge. Determination never looked so good.
PD. Will you be expanding Mischo Beauty to other beauty products in the future?
K. Yes! We are working on launching a full collection of color cosmetics to be released in the very near future. Please stay tuned!
Thanks Kitiya! We sure will! We look forward to chatting with you again soon!
