Cadillacquer Remember Me

Hi everyone! I'm certain by now you have seen mint manis popping up throughout the nail blogging community in honor of Talia Castellano, a 13 year old make-up guru with an absolutely beautiful spirit who passed away this week after a long battle with cancer. Watching her YouTube videos, I was just amazed at the strength and spirit she showed while faced with a terminal diagnosis. She was always so bubbly and upbeat about everything...and she was immensely talented as well. So wise beyond her years and just determined to live life to the fullest with the time she had left. Heaven has certainly gained an angel in Talia. She was an inspiration to so many people.

Thanks to Nicole from Nail Polish Wars, nail bloggers have banded together to post mint manis today in honor of Talia, inspired by her last Instagram post before her death which featured a mint polish.

For my mani, I chose a polish that is mint and the name is really appropriate for a tribute: Cadillacquer Remember Me. This polish has a shimmering mint base with pink glitters. It is opaque on its own in two coats, but I chose to layer 2 coats over American Apparel Office (it helps me to keep my lines cleaner with glitter polishes if I layer. The shimmer in this polish is lovely and the formula was excellent.

Cadillacquer polishes are available from Cadillacquer's Etsy Shop (based in Switzerland) and ships worldwide from Llarowe. Be sure to check out all of the mint manis honoring Talia, and if you haven't ever seen Talia, you should check out some of her YouTube videos. I promise you will be touched and inspired. Thanks for looking everyone!
