Diwali Gradient with Mariana

I had the opportunity to work with two very talented nail artists to collaborate manicures for my birthday.  Here is the full post for the first manicure:

My amazing Mexican friend Mariana contacted me as soon as I sent out invitations to join my Diwali Birthday Party.  She wanted to work with me and create a manicure together!  I was over the moon.  We realised that we both owned the konad stamping plate m99 and Mariana suggested gold stamping over an orange to red gradient.  So lush!!!!  I was so happy she joined me to celebrate my birthday together.

Check out her fantastic manicures on instagram:
