China Glaze BCA Collection: Celebrate Courage Nail Polish Swatches, Review

 Press sample


As we all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  BCA is a cause near to my heart, mainly because breast cancer claimed the life of my mom many years ago, and my best friend and my close friend are breast cancer survivors.  Let us not stop until we find a cure for this horrible disease.

China Glaze comes up with a collection honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month that has a beautiful name - Celebrate Courage - and courage is exactly what those who encountered BC in their lives have.  This collection has a white and pink color theme, in honor of BCA.  Here are my swatches of the China Glaze Celebrate Courage collection, and my thoughts on these.


 China Glaze Sheer Bliss

China Glaze Sheer Bliss

China Glaze Sheer Bliss is a matte white with an opalescent flash to it.  It looks very weird to me when the finish is matte, so I would always apply a topcoat over it.  It is a very good base for nail stamp art or any glitter topper, though.


China Glaze Carpe Diem


China Glaze Carpe Diem is a super light lilac that is almost white.  This is amazing as a base for glitter toppers and nail art too.  This also dries to a matte finish.
