China Glaze Fight Like a Woman

    Good morning, Dear Reader!

    I received samples of China Glaze's Fight Like a Woman, their Breast Cancer Awareness Collection, and I have swatches for you today.  These are seriously nice BCA colors - no wussy sheers here!

    So we all know what we're talking about, here's the copy of the press release:

    Los Angeles, Calif. (July 2010) – Join China Glaze Nail Lacquer this October in the battle against breast cancer, one nail at a time! The professional line of nail lacquers brings on the fight with three powerful pinks. Inspired by the women who fight everyday and those that support them in their battle, these fabulous shades are sure to help you defeat the toughest opponents with style and class. China Glaze representative Rachel Schafer voiced that “in an industry dominated by women, for women, it is important that we strive to work together towards finding a cure.”

    The three colors in “Fight Like A Woman” include:

    Encouragement – A baby pink shimmer that brings on the cheer

    Endurance – Power through the punches with this raspberry shimmer

    Empowerment РStand up tall with this cotton-candy cr̬me on your nails

    A portion of the proceeds will benefit the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), an agency of the World Health Organization dedicated to the science of cancer and promoting international collaboration in cancer research.

    The “Fight Like A Woman” Collection will be available at professional beauty supply stores and select salons this September. Availability will be very limited internationally.

    China Glaze colors may change from season to season, but our formula remains the same amazing longwearing lacquer with hardeners. Designed with the professional in mind, our 220-strand brush is great for ease of application. Best of all, our non-thickening formula provides great coverage. For more information, please visit

    Here are the colors.  I used three coats of each for opacity.

    Encouragement is better than it sounds - it's a glass flecked baby pink.  Very wearable, very beautiful.

    Endurance is a vivid glass flecked  raspberry, really pretty and really not what I expect from a BCA shade.

    The one creme is Empowerment, which is a perfect medium light pink.

    This is definitely not what I'd expect from a BCA collection - no sheers and all distinct colors.  I'm a big fan of the polishes in themselves, let alone the fact that a portion of proceeds goes to a good cause!  Thanks, China Glaze, for making really cool BCA colors!

    That's what I have for you today, Dear Reader!  I hope to have more China Glaze swatches for you tomorrow.  Until then, love and nail polish to you!
