Mint Mani for Talia Joy

by Lisa Heath

On Tuesday, July 16th, the world lost an amazing 13 year old girl named Talia Joy Castellano.  Talia was a beautiful  girl who was battling two horrible forms of cancer, neuroblastoma and preleukemia.  She was an incredibly talented makeup and nail artist.

 It is with a heavy heart that we share with all of you that Talia has earned her wings at 11:22am. Please lift her beautiful soul, her beautiful light to heaven and please send your love and prayers to her family during this most difficult time. God speed little one, may you be free from pain and suffering, may your soul feel the light and love that you brought to so many of us on this Earth during the short time you were her with us. We will miss you more than you will ever know baby girl.

Her last Instagram pic was of a mint green creme mani, so Nicole  of Nail Polish Wars thought it would be nice for a lot of us to ban together and all post our mint manis to remember Talia today.

I decided on a bright mint mani  in memory of Talia Joy.  If you’ve seen her videos, she had a bright and amazing personality, so I felt this color was fitting.

Mint for Talia

Rest In Peace Talia Joy.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all of Talia’s family and friends at this difficult time.  I have a little boy, and I cannot even begin to image the pain of losing a child.  My heart breaks for Talia’s loved ones.
