Mischo nail polish review

mischo nail polish review nyfw

Pictured: Mischo nail polish #NYFW /

How fun is this deep, dark, navy blue.  I’m loving the hue! In my quest for the new, upcoming spring 2021 nail polish colors, I came across this beauty brand for the first time. Mischo Beauty offers several pretty nail polish colors, all reasonably priced at $20. I was intrigued when I saw this deep navy blue color; after all, it is named after one of my favorite events of the year, #NYFW, so you know I had to buy it! Love that!

Mischo nail polish is ten free, and it is made in the USA. You know I love products made in the USA! This cream nail polish applies smoothly, without streaking. This is really important because dark cream polishes can often streak; this one does not. I was able to apply one base coat and two coats of color without having to go back over any spots. The first coat was even, so when I went to apply the second coat of color, it was a breeze!

I am really happy with how pretty this manicure came out. Mischo nail polish applies really well, and offers a beautiful saturation of color. The brush is easy to handle, making polishing a breeze. I will definitely be on the lookout for new colors to come out from the brand! If you are looking for a great nail polish at a good price, this is a fabulous brand to try out. You will love the even application and color saturation. I know I do!

Stay tuned for my spring nail polish reviews later this month!

Kerastase Blond Absolu hair care review

kerastase blond hair care

Kerastase Blond Absolu from top left: (all products c/o Kerastase) Kerastase Blond Absolu Cicaplasme / Kerastase Blond Absolu Serum Cicanuit / Kerastase Blond Absolu hydrating shampoo / Kerastase Blond Absolu  hair mask /

OK, you might be wondering why I am talking about blond hair care when I am brunette, I have a good reason! My daughter is blond! She is at an age where she cares deeply about hair care, and really wants products which will keep her blond hair vibrant and healthy. In addition to being blond, she has fine hair which is also very curly, so finding the right products to keep her hair in tip-top shape is always a challenge.

I was thrilled when Kerastase reached out to send me a few products to try out. My daughter had been looking for new hair care products, and the Kerastase Blond Absolu line sounded exactly like what she needed. I decided to have her try the products out, and if she loved them, I would share them with you. Guess what, she loved them!!

She has naturally blond hair, but a little over a year ago she dyed her tips blue. The blue didn’t stay blue, it turned aqua and then a funny green color. So, in order to restore her natural blond hue, we had the blue dye removed, and highlights added to the bottom half of her hair where the color had been. The top of her head is natural, and the bottom half matches her natural color perfectly. This means her hair care needs to work on natural blond hair as well as processed. Thankfully Kerastase Blond Abolu worked it’s magic!

She loves the shampoo which keep her hair hydrated and vibrant. She also uses the mask occasionally and she says it purifies her hair. If her hair seems dry from swimming or being at the beach, she uses the serum overnight to restore moisture an vibrancy.  The cicaplasme is great to protect her hair when she blow dries it. All in all, she is in love with this line and wants to use it for the long haul. We will be buying a new bottle of the shampoo shortly!

I too love Kerastase products, so in the shopping widget below I have linked to the Blond Absolu products my daughter loves as well as the products I love to use too on my brown, and slightly dry, hair. I hope you love this line too!

Thanks for stopping by!
