China Glaze Fight Like a Woman Collection
Nail Lacquers: Encouragement, Empowerment, Endurance

China Glaze Fight Like a Woman Collection

Though we’re still a few months out, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and this year, China Glaze has created three shades inspired by the women who are fighting their battles. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is an agency of the World Health Organization. The collection will start to roll out at beauty supply stores and select salons in September.

  • Encouragement is a pale, milky pink with silvery-white shimmer. Even with three coats, it wasn’t quite opaque, but it’s pretty close to it. Very pretty-in-pink.
  • Enpowerment is a creamy slightly cooled blue-based pink. I used three coats to get an opaque look. It looked less cool-toned under brighter/direct sunlight, though!
  • Endurance is a darkened fuchsia jelly base with fuchsia shimmer. I also used three coats here.

I like when pretty products also give back! It makes buying them just a little good for the soul, too. I’m a believer in purchasing products you want, not solely so you can give to a cause–because if you want to give a cause, a donation from you to them is always the best way, since 100% will go towards the cause you’re looking to support. However, when there’s an item you’d normally buy AND it gives back in some capacity, it’s a nice bonus.

China Glaze’s three shades are perfect to represent BCA month, and they’re lovely, feminine shades. My favorite shade was Endurance, just because it’s bold and beautiful and fun. I didn’t have any application issues with any of the three shades, though they all needed a full three coats.

But I really fell in love with the names used for these polishes–uplifting and inspiring.

i don’t really run out to buy nail polish collections but i love this one! the colors are great and i’d wear them and i just love the name of the collection and the names of the polishes!

They’re all very pretty but Encouragement really stands out the most to me. I have a lot of breast cancer patients at the hospital and it’s really sad what it does to not just their physical health, but their self esteem as well. Thumbs up to China Glaze for donating to a charity that will help women in need (and not waiting for the complaints to roll in before making that decision MAC)!

Hmm if I had to pick one it’d be Endurance. That is hard but oh well 😀 I’m still buying ALL of these!! I love China Glaze

I love all of them!

Is ‘Empowerment’ similar to ‘Make Love…’ from OPI? They look similar to me and I have the one by OPI

My great aunt, grandmother, and best friend’s mom died from breast cancer. i’ll definitely be purchasing all three of these.

Rest in peace Ma, Aunt Mary, and Mrs. Ward :/

I have to say that encouragement is the only one doing it for me! Empowerment is a bit too blue-toned for my liking and endurance is just one of those shades that remind me of primary school 😛

These are beautiful, and the names were so well thought, China Glaze did a wonderful job with this collection, and the fact that we are helping such an amazing cause it’s just awesome. =-)
