Mischo Beauty: Long Wear 5-Free Polish

I don't know if you guys have ever heard of Mischo Beauty... I hadn't, until the glorious day I found them on Instagram. So I instantly reached out to their owner about trying some of their polishes for review and she graciously obliged. And am I glad she did! (Btw, she's incredible. She also struggled with finding high-performing, toxin-free polishes, except she got to work using her chemistry degree and cosmetology license to make her own! Yes girl.)

Now, what I am about to tell you is borderline unicorn material.... The first time I tried the polish (in Front Row) it wore for 15 days. 15! A regular polish (ie. non-gel) that is 5-free and lasts for 2 weeks - AMAZING! The only thing I did was reapply a top coat about 7 days in because I couldn't believe it hadn't chipped and I wanted it to last forever. 

The perfect fall red: Front Row from the Fashion Week Collection

Applying Mischo polish is a dream. It's a little thicker than some brands, but totally smooth, highly pigmented, and two coats looks like the perfect gel manicure. Of course a base and top coat are a must for any mani. It dries quite quickly with a gorgeous sheen, definitely helpful as a Mom. 

In the meantime I went to LA and back, had birthday celebrations for myself and my son, had 8 visitors in town and was doing e-ver-y-thing and it just ever so gently wore back from the edges. No chipping, no peeling, no popping, no splitting. And as mentioned, no formaldehyde, DBP, toluene, form-resin or camphor and cruelty-free.

This is actually a better indication of the true color.
Taken on day 11, can you believe that is all the wear I had? 

I'm now on to Empire State of Mind also from the Fashion Week Collection, which is a gorgeous, saturated, deep teal. I'm 6 days in and not a chip or imperfection in sight. Love.
