Empress by Mya Michele is a new nail polish brand, where elegance meets cosmetics and where every woman is a Queen. Mya Michele isn’t just looking to place her name on someone else’s product and endorse their brand. Mya Michele is a brand and sets itself apart by researching quality products and checking for ingredients that will make a woman feel positive about what she’s putting on her nails. In this multi-billion dollar industry, Mya Michele looks to be an iconic force and a leader in the cosmetics industry, offering a color brand that is truly unique in more than just its name.

Empress also carries with it a family bond - Mya is the founder's first name and Michele is her mother's middle name. The purpose behind building another nail lacquer brand is to encourage young girls to follow their heart's desires no matter how out of reach the dream may seem. Empress is one of about twenty nail polish lines owned and operated by a woman of color.
