China Glaze Fight Like A Woman

This is my Grandma and me, many years ago. She passed away in 2006 after a long battle with bone cancer that was caused from her breast cancer. I hope that one day, we'll have a cure for this killer.

I've never been really vocal about my fight against breast cancer.  It's not that I'm not passionate about it, because I am, but I'm scared of getting it, since it does run in my family.  I do donate to cancer research, and I have a pink ribbon pin that I like to wear in October, but I was really excited last year when I saw that China Glaze had 3 special pink polishes for Breast Cancer Awareness month.  This year, they are doing it again, and portions of the proceeds benefits IARC, an agency of the World Health Organization, so I'm super thrilled.  I have requested a PR sample but I have mentioned that I'm willing to buy them because frankly, cancer research needs all the help it can get.  I have already thought about having October be a "pink month", where I only swatch my pinks, but we'll see - that's quite far away!  Please enjoy the following release

China Glaze Nail Lacquer Gets the Gloves Ready to Join in the
Fight Against Breast Cancer

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.

  2. Lisa, it's always heartwarming to hear from a survivor. My grandmother actually beat it once, but it came back, and then settled into her bones. It was a very miserable time for everyone until she passed and it was just so heartbreaking. Thank you for reading and stay strong!

  3. I lost my Dad to cancer less than 2 months ago. Cancer is senseless and stupid, huh? I guess life has to go on so we can find a cure. I can't wait for these polishes, I love a good cause.

  4. I'll definitely have to pick these up too. My grandmother dies a little over two years ago from ovarian cancer. So now I'm terrified of getting it too, esp with the hormone imbalances I just found out about. Though I think we all worry about it honestly. Hopefully we'll find a cure soon. That doesn't cause the zombie apocalypse.

  5. My aunt fought the same battle. Breast cancer survivor, then lost the fight to bone (and brain) cancer 12 years later. I love that buying something you love can help fight the fight though!
