Beautiful designs, stunning colour, and a smell that most people love (and some totally hate!). Yes, you got it right. We are indeed talking about the wonder that we all call mehendi or henna. For an Indian bride, henna is much more than just a tradition, it’s an emotion. For a bride, the mehendi ceremony is actually one of the most important part of the wedding rituals and it’s only when you have henna on your hands that the feeling of getting married settles in. And all this just makes us believe that your mehendi design and style is just as important as your outfit. So while brides are opting for new and different things such as thigh-high slit lehengas, offbeat and unique colours and cool new ways to enter their wedding, a twist in the mehendi is also a must.
So here it is – glitter mehendi! Yes girls, you heard us right. And no, we’re not talking about putting a few dots of glitter in your regular henna to make it look sparkly. We’re talking business here – it’s actually a mehendi design made of glitter. Now that’s sparkly, literally!
There are two ways of applying this unique glitter mehendi to your hands. The artist can either make a design on your hand with a sticky solution and then top it with sparkle powder. This is what we’re talking about:
The other way is directly applying a sparkly solution on your hands with the use of a henna cone. It looks like this:
