Yay!  Two more hennas for you!

Haven't been able to do many since I got my job (have to dress business casual, and most of the henna I do on myself is hand henna...which is not "business casual" ;____;), but did a few recently.


First one I did on my friend Sabrina.
Long story short, she and I went to middle and high school together in FL and lived about 2 miles away from each other, she moved to NY about two years ago, and I moved to CT about a year ago...now we live about 2 hours away! lol 
So I went over for a visit, and she asked me to do some henna.





The next one was done on my foot, and I wanted to do it in a more African style, since I always do Indian style.





These were both 100% original, I might add (a year ago, I was having a lot of trouble coming up with my own random designs...I think I'm getting better! Cheesy)


Let me know what you think!

Thank you!  And pssshhh, my hand's not steady at all.  I have to rest it on something no matter what, otherwise it's too unsteady to do anything.  lmao.
It's really just a matter of resting your hand on something and practicing a whole hell of a lot.  YOU CAN DO IT!!  haha Wink

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

I love how the dots give the hand pattern a lace effect. Never would have thought it! My sister is working towards being a tattoo artist, and I'm trying to get her to do henna for me. I can do my left hand just fine, being right handed, but my left hand... forget it!

Just a cone with the tip cut very, very small.  Gotta make sure your paste is very smooth too, otherwise it won't work.

Well, I've never done henna at a fair myself, but the best tips I've ever found can be found here:  http://hennapage.com/henna/how/index.html

If there are any specific questions you have that aren't answered on that website, feel free to ask, and I'll do my best to answer! Smiley

Yay! I'm so glad people keep saying that, because that's exactly what I intended it to look like, lol.  Thank you!! Cheesy

Haha, I'm the exact same way (except left handed, lol).  Whenever I post photos of henna I've done on my own hand, it's always of my right hand  c( :

How beautiful!  I think the blue nail polish in the first photo really brings out the Henna.  Did it come out red or brown when you  rinsed it off?

I agree about the nail polish--after I did the henna on her, I made a comment to her about how much I liked the combination, haha.
It came out a very dark brown with a slight hint of red (much more brown than red, though).  The paste I buy usually turns out that way.  c( :

It's really just a matter of practice.  If you can, get a cheap henna cone and try practicing (or do what I do--whenever I have a cone that I forgot about that's really old and not potent enough to stain anymore, I'll use that for practice so I don't waste good henna  Smiley)


LOVE IT! YOU SHOULD DO SOME SKULL HENNA!

Thanks!! lol
I'm not big on skulls, but I suppose I could try.  Would have to find a guinea pig willing to have a skull on them for two weeks.  hehe

Of the two, I honestly like the hand better, but that's because I'm biased.  As previously mentioned in this post, I prefer to do Indian-style henna.  c( :

I post them as I do them, really, and since I only do them for fun and it's winter and cold out, I probably won't be posting more until it gets warmer out (because really, when it's cold out, everyone's bundled up so much that it doesn't give much of a chance to show off henna  Wink)

I use a premade paste I buy from an Indian market.  From the ingredients listed, the only additives are lemon juice and water.  It doesn't smell like anything other than that was added, and I've never had anyone have an adverse reaction to it, so I'm sure that's all that's in it.  Smiley
