Mint Manicure for Talia Joy

**all items purchased by me

Today a lot of members of the beauty blogger community are doing mint manicures for Talia Joy in tribute.  It's quite sad that she is gone since she is/was such a wonderful YouTube makeup artist and inspiration by showing such an exuberance for life despite circumstances.

3 coats of Sinful Colors Mint Apple over a base of Bridge the Ridge.  

I was going to add some glitter or something, but decided that the pretty silver-y shimmer in Mint Apple was just right for today.  This was thinner than I expected so my first coat was thinner, then the other 2 were medium thick coats to get it fairly opaque.  I think 2 medium coats would have looked better, with maybe a 3rd thin one if needed.  I also should have used a coat of quick dry top coat, but didn't so the shine you see in the pictures is all from the polish itself.

Did you pull out a mint polish for today?  Which brand/color did you choose?
