Mint Mani for Talia Joy

Hello beautiful people! 
I am so sorry for my hiatus and I am hoping very much that from now on I will be able to keep posting regularly. However, today's post is a very sad one.
Last Tuesday, on July 16th, a very special girl had passed away. Talia Joy Castellano, a beauty blogger, a beauty Guru actually and an amazing 13 years old girl, lost her battle to cancer. More then half of her life was spent fighting two kinds of cancer and yet, she did in her short time on this earth a lot more then most people do in their entire life.

This beautiful little girl touched so many lives without even knowing it. For example, me - I am not a make up person and I never watched any of Talia's make up tutorials for the make up. But this young lady always smiles  and she always looks so beautiful and strong. This is what I was trying to take from her videos and posts. Talia gave this world so much courage. And this is how she touched me too. 

Please make sure you watch her You Tube Channel and her Instagram account. Also, visit Angels For Talia on Facebook, to see all the updated and information as Talia's family and friends continue to make her dreams and wishes come true. 

In Talia Joy Castellano's honor I made a mint colored manicure.

For this mani I used two coats of Bell Air Flow Lotus Effect polish number 712 and SoFlaJo My Sign's Aqua-rium. The Bell polish actually had a horrible formula and was very hard to work with, but I thought it was a beautiful mint color and I didn't want to give it up. And after all - it does look good.

SoFlaJo - My Sign's Aqua-Rium is a beautiful turquoise base with lots of aqua shimmer and micro glitter. It is part of SoFlaJo's Wet Dreams Collection.
As you can see, I free-handed the shapes on my nails, so they are not perfectly straight. But who's perfect anyway?
