China Glaze Encouragement

Sorry for my delay in posting - all my polish is still in a box, a bag, and a few bottles are on my desk at the moment.  My polish racks will be here on the 3rd.  The house appraisal was on Thursday so YAY that's done, however, my Dad was put in the hospital on Wednesday night and will be there for several days as they try to dissolve the blood clot in his right leg.  Also I'm attempting to potty train my 3 year old before he starts Pre-K3 on the 11th and I'm having second thoughts about school for him.  Finally, I'm having to go to my doctor on Monday because the swelling in my legs have gotten worse and my doctor wanted me to go to the ER but I said no way.  FUN TIMES.

Back to the polish - that's why you're here!

So unfortunately, I only was able to swatch one of these before they got put in The Bag for moving.  Now, this is the first time I've received actually PR samples from China Glaze, that has the PR bottle label instead of the normal bar code.  Me, being a horrible speller, has noticed that "Encouragement" which was spelled correctly in the press release, is called "Encouragment" on the PR bottle.  I'm just double checking on that.

Now the only thing that made me slightly sad about this years BCA (Breast Cancer Awareness) collection was that the bottles will not have a tiny pink ribbon printed on the bottle like last years.  That's okay though because the colors are still absolutely beautiful.

Encouragement is a very milky white pink that was slightly sheer and contained a silver shimmer.  I had forgotten all about the shimmer until I got outside and saw it.  Sadly, I didn't have any sun the day I swatched, but you can still see how beautiful it is!

I used a base coat of Dermelect Launchpad, 3 coats of Encouragement, and topped it with Seche Vite.
Encouragement is a very soft color which I think is great for the office and the shimmer gives it a little punch!  The Fight Like a Woman collection will be available in professional beauty supply stores and select salons this September. Availability will be very limited internationally.
