Kitiya's story

Kitiya is a licensed cosmetologist, esthetician, makeup artist and overall beauty guru. She received training and experience at Vidal Sassoon, Aveda, and Elizabeth Arden’s Red Door Spa. In 2007, Kitiya founded Mischobeauty.com, a beauty-centric website, with followers all over the world who read Kitiya’s beauty product reviews and learn more about the world of beauty.

Kitiya has an academic background in chemistry. Her goal is to combine her passions for chemistry and beauty by launching her first nail polish product line. Kitiya sees the nail polish line as the first of many opportunities for her business. Kitiya first started working on developing her nail polish line five or six years ago. After the birth of her son, Kitiya began reading the labels on her nail polish and noticed the number of harsh chemicals in the bottle. Kitiya will develop a 5-FREE formula, meaning the nail polish will not have any of the five common toxins.

Kitiya is currently working with one of the largest laboratories and manufacturers of quality nail polish. Kitiya needs $8,000 to fill the order with the lab, professionally photograph the products, and build the e-commerce page of her website.

Kitiya’s long-term goal is to write a beauty book and open her own beauty school.
