Mint Manicures for Talia Joy

Hello all,

Today's post comes from a bit more serious of a place, but not necessarily a sad one.

As some of you may or may not know, the online beauty community recently lost one of their own.

Talia Joy Castellano passed away earlier this week after a long battle with neuroblastoma and leukemia at the age of 13.

There have been so many people touched by Talia's story and her passion for makeup and fashion.

Losing this amazing little girl has hit the online beauty community hard, but it has brought us all together in such a big way as we all take the time to remember just how much of an impact such a young girl has made on us all.

Today is an example of all of us who love and will miss Talia greatly honoring her memory.

In her final days, Talia posted a mint manicure, and in honor of her I am participating in Mint Manicures for Talia Joy so that I, and the other participants, will take a little piece of Talia with us today and share it with the world.

Butter London Two Fingered Salute
My mint polish for today is Butter London's Two Fingered Salute, a dusty mint green polish with copper glitter.

I chose this polish, not just because it was mint, but because it was even more perfect because it had a great sparkle to it, just like Talia.

I will always remember the warmth and joy Talia had and the simple love for life she showed.  She was beautiful and brilliant and just shone everywhere she went, even when she may not have felt her best, she knew that life was precious and worth living.

It may sound odd, but I hope I'm like Talia when I "grow up" and remember that everyday is a gift and that you make your own life beautiful.

We will never forget Talia Joy, she will have a place in our hearts forever and no one will ever be able to shine quite as bright as she did.
