Diwali Nailart 2015

Hello Lovelies,

Today is Deepawali also known as Diwali. It's an Indian festival celebrated with a lot of enthusiasm all over India. There is a mythological story behind this festival. Diwali falls 18 days after Dushera festival  (Dushera marks the demise of demon king Ravana by Lord Rama). It's said that Lord Rama returned to Ayodhya (his home) with his wife Goddess Sita and brother Lord Laxmana after 18 days so to welcome him Ayodhya was decorated with earthen lamps called diyas and people celebrated this day as Deepawali or Diwali which means festival of lights. It's biggest festival of Hindus and rituals extend to period of five days. There is another story that Goddess Laxmi was born during Diwali festival. She is Goddess of wealth and prosperity in Hindu religion so she is also worshipped during Diwali. Check out pictures below and enjoy the festivities :)...........

Diwali Nailart - Wishing All a Happy Diwali 2014

Hello friends,

Wish you a wonderful Diwali. Diwali is the festival of Lights and celebrated in the honour of Lord Rama returning to his home. This is a week long festival and different days have different ceremonies. Goddess Laxmi and Lord Ganesha are worshipped as this festival is also considered as start of Hindu's new year and Hindus pray for prosperity and good luck for coming new year.

This is my favourite festival. As a kid also I loved decorating my house with earthen lamps and helping my mother in making rangoli. I tried to recreate the same scene on my nails. Have a look
