I was literately bored this afternoon. And there was this cone mehndi in my refrigerator .
Yes, I keep my mendhi cone in fridge, any problem ? I also keep my lip stick and lip pencils there too. You should too they will not off soon by being there. Believe me, lip pencil lives pretty cool there.
OMG .. my hand is so mad cute !
OK, now those who are wondering what kinda tattoo is this, for their information this is a very simple mehindi design not a tattoo. I never dubbed it tattoo in my whole life. No offend they so pretty much look like tataoo though it is not a tattoo.
Now you would definitely ask what is this ? Well this is mehindi. Kindly click this link. It will take you to it's wikki page, where you could get the detail and all that jazz.
However I give ya some info here, it's the application of henna. They are temporary.
I dunno why it's wikki page emphasizes that it is a South Asian thing only. In reality gals in Middle Eastern, North Africa, and some in South East Asian Muslims also apply it on their palms and feet day before they get married. They also have their henna nights. So why just desi thing?
Wikki is a lie or dunno know everything !!!!!!!!
My Moroccan and Omani friends both had this on their wedding, though it was just on their palms, unlike us. We do too much, goes up to elbows, arms, shoulders, at the back side of hands and feet as well. We are crazy na !
In Pak, we also don't do it specially for any particular occasion like you know that just for gals who are getting married at their henna night. Here we are so found of it, and do it when ever we want. Not only would be bride applies it, all her cousins, aunties, close friends get it too.
Almost 30 minute after this application, it dried and started cracking up. I washed my hand. Dark orange color appeared on my palm. I hope it get darker. Usually it gets darker after one day. I applied it with my right hand on my left palm. It smell so nice...sondhi khusbu, isn't?
When I do this seriously for the Eid, or any other occasion I make sure to use lemon juice and sugar on it so I can get dark reddish color as much as possible.
On Eid eve, I also leave them for whole night, and sleep with them on my hands_____ both hands, up to my elbow, and wash them in the next morning. It always, always turns into dark black color.
It says if your mehindi color turns out so dark, your mother-in-law, some say husband will love you so much.
Hey gals, what do ya do to get dark mehindi color ?
And what kinda design ya like to get most, and when ?
