Mint Mani For Talia Joy

Today's post is an extra special one. As some of you may already know, the beauty community lost a beautiful, remarkably talented make-up artist on Tuesday morning... Talia Joy Castellano.

Talia Joy was a young girl of only 13, and sadly, her life was cut short by two malicious forms of cancer, neuroblastoma and preleukemia. This honorary Cover Girl touched the hearts of millions with her amazing talent and bright character. Talia's Youtube make up tutorials and vlogs about her battle with cancer have been an inspiration to us all, not just the beauty/blogging community. You may have also seen her appearance on Ellen DeGeneres where she was given her honorary Cover Girl status. 

Many nail art bloggers, beauty bloggers, and followers/friends of Talia's have come together today, Friday, July 19th, to honour this beautiful, inspiring young girl. The last Instagram photo she posted featured a mint green manicure that her and her mother shared... and today we offer our #MintManisForTaliaJoy 

I started with a base of China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, then created a gradient using Re-Fresh Mint and Etude Turquoise. I stamped the hearts using MASH-48.

If you haven't already, please join us in remembering the beautiful life of Talia Joy and help her legacy live on. Leave your #MintManisForTaliaJoy in the inlinks tool below or upload to twitter, instagram, facebook, tumblr etc. with the hashtag above and #TaliasLegacy. 

My heart goes out to Talia's family and friends... it wasn't hard to tell that Talia loved each and every one of her subscribers on her Youtube channel, and I think I speak for everyone when I say we loved her too!!
