Today's post is one I write with a heavy heart.
As some of you might have heard, a beautiful young girl named Talia Joy Castellano passed away a couple of days ago due to cancer.
Although I didn't know her in real life, I was following her everywhere I could follow her on the internet because she was a very inspiring and smart for her age girl. Despite her medical diagnosis/prognosis, Talia had a very very evident and fun filled spirit. She loved all things pretty and even had a youtube channel where she showcased her makeup/beauty skills. At a very young age of 13, this disease with no cure called cancer took her life after a very brave and long fight Talia went through. This beautiful girl kept on swimming as she always famously said, and I am sure that she is now resting her pretty self from swimming and flying with the heavenly bodies.
My prayer is that she rests in perfect peace and I hope she knows that she was loved by people who hadn't even met her before.
In honor of Talia, the nail community has dedicated today, Friday, the 19th of July 2013, as a day where everyone should wear Mint Manis in honor of Talia.
My understanding is that Nicole of Nail Polish Wars put this together, and I'm sure Talia is smiling down because it's clear - via her instagram posts- that she loved nail polishes/nail art.
For my #MintManisForTaliaJoy, here is what I came up with.
I started with two coats of China Glaze - Re-Fresh Mint.

I brought out my rhinestones and just went with the flow.
I stopped at what you see below.
That's it for my mani in honor of a wonderful, beautiful, and inspiring girl that has certainly left a mark on this world. She made waves in her short years on this earth, and I'm sure God knows best as to why she had to leave us so young.
If you're interested in doing a mint mani, go ahead and join us.
For those on instagram and facebook, Tag #MintManisForTaliaJoy, and also include #TaliasLegacy (as requested by her family).
