Happy Mehndi Monday, Maharanis! Are you as thrilled as we are to find out who the finalists of the 5th Annual Mehndi Maharani Contest with Ash Kumar are? No doubt we already spilled the beans with this first contender vying for the crown with the title of this post, but don't worry, we'll be announcing others every day until Thursday of this week, so there are plenty of surprises in store! You'll be able to vote for your favorite artist by leaving a comment for them on their post (only your comment counts as a vote, hitting the "favorite" button will not). Got it? Great! Now I can introduce you to our very first, 2015 Finalist, Mahdia of Beautés d'Ailleurs Henné in France! Here's what she has to say about her craft:
"Four years ago, I discovered mehndi. I did not just find a passion, above all I found a therapy and a way to express my emotions. Modest and timid, I express everything through my work — feelings, humors, state of mind...each design is a message. I work hard every day to progress, thank and pay tribute to people who trust in me and support me to always go farther." - Mahdia
Check out some of Mahdia's incredible work, and head into her gallery for even more!
