Mint Manis for Talia Joy on Friday

Hey everyone! For those of you who might not know, the beauty community lost one of it's most treasured members on Tuesday morning ... Talia Joy Castellano.  Talia was a beautiful thirteen year old girl who was battling two horrible forms of cancer, neuroblastoma and preleukemia. She was also a supremely talented make up and nail artist.  You might have seen her amazing appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show, where she was also made an honorary Cover Girl!


I have just been so sad today after hearing of Talia Joy's passing. I don't know how many of you saw it, but her last Instagram pic, posted four days ago, was of a mint green creme mani. (For those of you who asked, it was POP Nailglam Mint Magic.)
I thought it might be really nice for a lot of us to ban together and all post our mint manis to remember Talia on Friday. 

The hashtags for this will be #mintmanisfortaliajoy and ‎#TaliasLegacy‬ for those of you on Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, etc.

Thank you so much to all of you who have already expressed such an interest in participating!! I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone's love and support for Talia Joy and her family!

  11. Thank you for mentioning this. I've been so sad since I heard the news last night. Talia was such an amazing girl. Her strength, love, and zest for life were simply contagious. She was a true talent, and one of the most beautiful young ladies I've ever seen. She will surely be missed.

  12. This is a great idea to honor Talia! I'm in for sure because watching/being apart of her journey has made me realize that we all need to "just keep swimming". If she could do it through two forms of cancer then we can face our problems head on. Take nothing for granted and live everyday like its our last.

  41. It's so beautiful to see everybody join in like that! It's so sweet of you to have started this. I'm sure Talia is smiling down on us and all the manis! Honestly, I had never heard of her before she passed (yes, I guess I've been living under a rock!!) but it's so great to see that she was always high spirited and optimistic. Truly an angel.
    I'm only wearing my accent nail in mint, I'll post it later in the day on IG.
    Hugs Nicole <3
