Mint Manis for Talia Joy!

Hey Lovelies! 
So today I've got a mint mani going for the remembrance of the beautiful, inspirational Talia Joy. You may've heard of the 13-year-old girl who loved makeup and beauty, she made an appearance on the Ellen Degeneras show last September and was made an honorary CoverGirl in October 2012. 
Talia was diagnosed with cancer at a young age and this summer announced that she was battling both neuroblastoma and leukemia at the same time. Sadly, she passed away earlier this week after losing her battle with cancer :(. 
We as a community have decided to do mint nails today in remembrance of the lovely Talia, as her last beauty Instagram picture was of mint green nails. 

Barry M 'Green Berry'! Aargh, I've nearly finished this polish so now it's really goopy and I had serious problems applying, especially with the heat. It photographs mint greenish, but it is quite bright greeny blue in person.
