"I've done a Diwali mani especially for you  :)  I love learning about other cultures.
(Today) is the Diwali Festival and it is also the birthday of the sweet Roberta over at Bob Plays with Polish. She asked on her blog and facebook if people wanted to join her Birthday Party and do a Diwali mani. I always love learning more about other cultures. So of course I also wanted to do a Diwali mani for her birthday.
Diwali also known as Deepavali and the "festival of lights", is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in autumn every year.The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair."

"My Diwali mani. Happy Bday Roberta
Today is Diwali, a very auspicious and most celebrated Indian festival. Diwali is also called "festival of lights" and is celebrated for victory of light over darkness, good over evil.  We also worship goddess lakshmi on this day and light up oil lamps to welcome goddess. Fireworks are also important part of the Diwali.  I remember the whole neighborhood gather outside their houses and burst firecrackers for hours. It was so much fun, this was the second best part which i use to love as kid, best part was getting gifts. Anyway, what i want to say is that, I love Diwali and miss celebrating it with family in India."

Nail Art Stamping Mania (Eleonora Palma)
"Hi Everyone!!!! Some days ago  I was invited from my friend Roberta Wilco to do for her birthday a manicure inspired by Diwali. Diwali is an ancient Hindu festival  also known as  the "festival of lights" celebrated in autumn every year. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness. I think it's a lovely festival full of spirituality!!!
I simply applied a bright holo polish (F.U.N. Lacquer "Margarita Cocktail") that reminds the lights. I stamped paisley images  with VL-2 plate on thumb and ring finger and fireworks  with Konad m99 on index finger.   While,  on pinky and middle finger I applied some homemade decals that depict the Diwali. Finally I did a LeadLight using permanent markers. I conclude by wishing a happy birthday to my friend and a happy Diwali to all Indians!!! ♥"

"Hello guys. Here is my Diwali inspired nails. Last weekend we got invited to celebrate Diwali. Everything was very colorful and all the dances were enjoyable. I have always loved Indian food which is full of flavor and always delicious. "#Diwali. The festival celebrates the victory of good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance, although the actual legends that go with the festival are different in different parts of India" Happy Sunday to you and yours ☺❤❤❤"

Simply stunning, I adore that combination of images, and your nails are soooo elegant, thank you for sharing with me Joshik.

"Happy Birthday Bob and Happy Diwali!
Hello friends! First, I would like to say Happy Birthday to my dear friend Roberta! I send you lots of love and hope your special day is full of happiness and cake!
I also wanted to wish everyone a Happy Diwali! What is Diwali you ask? Diwali is a Hindu festival of lights, held in the period of October to November. It is particularly associated with Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity, and marks the beginning of the fiscal year in India."

Wow, Priscilla, you never fail to amaze me with your work.  I can't actually believe some of this is hand-painted.  You clever lovely girl. xxxXxxx
