China Glaze Breast Cancer Awareness 2012: Exquisite

Since we're getting to the end of Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought I'd better post this quickly!  China Glaze did 12 polishes for BCA, but only one appealed to me.  Exquisite is a bubble-gum pink glass-fleck, very girly, pretty and dainty but not boring.  The polish formula was perfect, not too thick, not too thin, it flowed nicely without pooling and I didn't really need any cleanup.  Swatches are two coats without topcoat, and the VNL you can see in the non-flash picture wasn't visible to the naked eye.

Although I have a certain amount of philosophical disagreement with the whole idea of BCA month, this is a very pretty polish and I'm glad I got it.  The entire 12-piece collection is available at beauty stores and e-tailers now.


  1. Very pretty shade!
    What's your disagreement with BCA about? I'm very curious to know, that is if you're interested to say ;)! I'm writing a post about it on my blog and you'd may be interested in it... maybe

  2. My disagreement with BCA is that they get a ton of attention and funds and there are a lot of rare diseases and societal problems that don't get a whole month's worth of focus and fundraising. And yes, I will be interested to read your post!

    1. I totally see your point, but in a way it is normal (not saying is a good thing, but I can understand) that a very common disease gets more attention than a very rare one. That is because more people feels touched and involved.
      I have some sort of disagreement too, but is different. I think the whole event is extremely commercialized and sometimes we miss the whole point of what "awareness" means.
