For Talia... #MintManisForTaliaJoy #TaliasLegacy

As most of you know, this week the world has lost a beautiful person named Talia Joy.




She was a girl of thirteen with the personality of 20 spitfires and a smile that reflected true happiness, no matter how tough things probably were in reality! She had two horrible forms of cancer, preleukemia and neuroblastoma which she battled with for 6 years and unfortunately lost that battle this past Tuesday. It was a deep tear that went through everybody's lives that she touched.

Nicole of Nail Polish Wars thought that it would be a great idea for the nail polish/art community to commemorate Talia by wearing mint green mani's, the color that she wore with her sister and mom in one of her last Instagram photos. When I read this, I knew I had to be a part of this movement. A life like hers has to be celebrated. She did so much with the little time that she had and she did it with love and joy.






Unfortunately I don't currently own any mint polishes but I thought China Glaze For Audrey represented her soft and fun personality beautifully. I painted a mosaic heart on my ring finger to show that she will be always be in our hearts like it's set in stone.





Talia, you came into our lives for such a short time but the memory of you will always live on. 

Yes, the world has lost a beautiful person but heaven gained an even more beautiful angel.

    1. It is one of those funny colors that you can't really place if it leans more blue or more green...or I can't! Lol Most people describe it as a close but not exact dupe of Tiffany Blue.
      But thank you V!!!! I really liked how it came out
