Today the nail polish community has come together to remember, honor, and celebrate the beautiful Talia Joy. Earlier this week, Nicole over at Nail Polish Wars posted how she wanted us all to post our mint manis for Talia on Friday. I knew I had to join, and here’s what I came up with:
I used Essie – Mint Candy Apple for all of my nails with the exception of my ring fingers. For my ring finger, I used a base colour of OPI – Elephantastic Pink, then used Art Club – White to fill in half of my nail white. I then used Art Club –Black to create a leopard print on the pink side and a zebra print on the white side. I then used square studs (alternating from square to diamond) to line the border between the two sides.
I chose to create the animal print accent because her last instagram picture was her mint mani taken on a background of zebra print. I chose studs because I remember seeing her with studs on her stiletto nails.
On the day of Talia’s passing, her sister, Mattia, posted a video saying how Talia wanted her name to live on forever, and I know that will be true… Look at all of us that came together to simply post our mint manicures!
Thanks for reading, and if you have time today, I encourage you to post your mint mani and add it to the collection!
