Traditional mehndi—or henna—is the art of creating a temporary stain on the skin using a paste made from the henna plant. True, natural henna comes in only one color—red/brown—and can last up to three weeks.
But sometimes, you want something a little special.
"Glitter mehndi" is not true mehndi in that nothing from the henna plant is used, but you can still get henna-like designs using cosmetic glitter or powders on top of liquid adhesive.
Using this technique, the design is sweatproof and waterproof and, with care, can last several days with minimal wear. The design is dry after the glitter or cosmetic powder goes on, so there is no worry about smearing or staining. However, it can be gently peeled or scraped off or loosened with mineral oil. You can even add gems for extra glamour and sparkle!
This technique would be awesome for both Western and South Asian brides, proms, stage performances, pageants, holidays ... any time you would like extra sizzle and glamour.
But you really can't see the FLASH of this technique until you see it in action! Check out my video below! And if you are interested in getting glitter mehndi by itself or as an accent to traditional henna, just give me a call 205-378-8058 or inquire at [email protected]
