Talia Joy and Kristy
When I went to IMATS LA, I was fortunate enough to meet Talia Joy. Kristy from BFTE Cosmetics introduced me to her. She was a very talented makeup artist. On Tuesday morning, July 16, 2013, Talia lost her battle with cancer. It never fails to make me cry when I see a child die from cancer. I always feel it’s unfair, because their life was so brief. I know she’s in a better place now. To honor Talia, the beauty community has come together to do mint manis for Talia today, organized by Nail Polish Wars.
For my mani, I chose butter LONDON Two Fingered Salute. It’s a muted, patinaed green cream with copper microglitter.

How absolutely heartbreaking that someone so young had to go through cancer and had such a brief life. I am so sad for her family.
Two Fingered Salute seems like such a fitting tribute to Talia Joy. It’s a beautiful color. It really is sad to see kids going through things like that and to lose their lives so early. But her legacy will definitely be remembered.
