Henna on Mum

I applied these designs on mum almost a year ago.

[Click images to enlarge]

I hate this first design cause the henna cone was crap & it came out really thick & made the whole design look bad. I didn't even feel like applying the henna anymore cause I was hating it so much.

Mum then made another cone using the same henna. She mixed the henna up, used a plastic shopping bag to make another cone, & filled it up with henna. She then cut a smaller hole in the new cone, which allowed me to make a more detailed design. It's a lot more delicate & I like it way better than the first one.
I took these pics a few days after I had applied the henna & since my mum is always in the kitchen, her henna comes off faster cause she keeps washing her hands every two minutes. I wish I had taken a pic of the second design right when I had applied it cause I really liked the design.

Girl you are so AMAZING at doing intricate designs! I would never be able to do that, my hand isn't even steady enough for outlining or sketching. I agree I like the second design cause it looks more delicate, but the first design definitely makes a statement!

I love HENNA! I still haven't found anyone to do it. Been wanting it for years and I'm not doing it myself, no way!
