In Memory of Talia Joy

This past Tuesday the beauty community and the world lost one its brightest stars, Talia Joy Castellano.  In case you were unfamiliar, she was a Youtube makeup guru battling a rare form of cancer called neuroblastoma for over six years.  She later developed pre-leukemia and the cancer spread into her bones.

Her mantra was, "Makeup is my Wig" deciding to forgo wearing a wig and embracing the transformative power of makeup.  Her zest for life was unparalleled and she faced her prognosis with maturity and equanimity like no other.  She was able to accomplish so much in the short time she was here with us.

Today, nail bloggers have partnered together to post Mint Manis for Talia inspired by her last Instagram photo posted a few days before she passed.  She's wearing POP Nailglam Mint Magic.

This is my mani dedicated to Talia. 

I wanted to do a mint mani but I also wanted to do a mani I know Talia would love.  I wanted to incorporate animal print as seen on some of her NOTD posts and a 3D bow. 

It's honestly hard for me to write all of this.  I followed her story for quite some time. 

Rest in peace sweetheart.  You were an inspiration to us all!

If you have a mint mani to post, please use hashtags #mintmanisfortaliajoy #taliaslegacy.  To make a donation in her honor, please visit

Ms. Lizard's Birthday

Today, is my birthday! Wahoo! 

I going out of town and writing this ahead of time.  I don't have a birthday manicure to share just yet. 

Overall, I want to thank everyone that continues to support and visit my little nail blog. 

It's been a hectic past few months and I haven't been able to devote time to my blog like I want to. 

Thanks again! 

I hope to see you all soon!
