Mint Manis for Talia Joy

It's always sad when cancer takes a life, but even more so when it's a child. This look is in honor of Talia Joy. I'm sure you've all seen a lot of mint manis today. Her last Instagram photo was of mint nails, so it seems only fitting for us all do to the same. I read this from Nicole at Nail Polish Wars...

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 started with 2 coats of Sally Hansen- Mint Sorbet. On my ring finger, I added one coat of Orly- Sparkling Garbage. On my middle finger, I stamped with BM-02 and Essie- Go Overboard.
