There are times when we get very excited about a certain thing ,and we need to do it. Especially what we like.
I am a person who when wants to have something , I have to get it some way and especially when I had been expecting that it would happen.

This happened on The night of Dhanteras that in my hostel many of my batch mates were applying mehendi on their hands and the girl who was applying it , does it exceptionally well. So when I asked her will she be able to do it, unfortunately she turned me down. But for a valid reason, she was tired cause she had applied mehendi on 3 person's hands.

I was a little sad cause I wanted to apply mehendi too, and that too after a very long time. So I thought why not give it a try by myself.
And it didn't turn out to be very bad! and like I share everything I do, I am sharing the designs with you. Hope you like it.

Now, a few ways to darken your mehendi !

Before application :-

Do not apply anything like oil or moisturizer
Keep your hands clean and rub your hands very nicely before application
Apply on dry hands.

After application:-

Make a mixture of lemon juice and sugar in equal amount , after the mehendi has dried off lightly dab the mixture with the help of a small cotton pad. This is a sticky mixture and keeps the mehendi at place.

Keep your hands warm.

After you have shed of the dried of mehendi , gently, then try not to wash your hand with soap , water is fine , but you know too much of anything is not good :)

  2. Its v pretty.. To darken it u can keep your hands above a hot pan (make sure ur hand does not touch the pan)...The more the heat from the pan touches ur hand.. the darker will ur mehendi be.. Its tried and tested and it works :)
