Trendy Mehndi / Henna Body Art Designs 2011

Meow Pussy Cats

Henna Leaves

Henna or Mehndi is still a tradition and used in several countries for festivals and celebrations.  It has been used  to dye skin, hair, fingernails, leather and wool. Henna is widely used for body art. It’s made from either the henna leaf or a henna powder mixed with water. This is then left on the skin either over night or for a good few hours. The colour depends on the quality of the henna paste and your skin type. Henna’s colouring properties are due to Lawsone. This is a Burgundy Organic Compound that has an infinity for bonding with protein.

Henna Powder

Henna can be bought at Asian shops in powder form and already mixed in tubes. Though be careful as some already mixed henna does not give that desired burgundy colour. The powder is usually mixed with lemon Juice or strong tea or just water. It is then mixed into a toothpaste consistency. Then this is left  for about 12 hours, so the Lawsone has time to work. You will need a strong sandwich bag,  fold the bag into a cone shape leaving a very tiny hole at the end, fill the bag half way with the Henna mixture. Fold the top half over a few time and cellotape to secure the top. This should now look like a very small cake piping bag. You are ready to now start designing some henna designs. Once the henna is on your hands or feet let it dry and then with a cotton but add some olive oil on top to make it moist again.

Henna mixed into a paste consistency.

I have found some images of easy and difficult henna designs. Difficult designs are usually done professionally. But from Easy to the most difficult  henna designs they do all look stunning and Asian brides will have this put on there hands a week or so before they get married. The Henna night is known as the mehndi night. On this night the ladies get together and as well as carrying out other traditions on this night they also  put henna on their hands and feet, sing and dance. I guess a bit like a hen night.

Avon French Manicure Kit With a Twist (Easy Technique).

Meow Pussy Cats


Avon French Manicure Kit

The Avon French Manicure Kit comes with a White and Nude nail polish. Also in the box you will find a pack of 30 tiny stickers. Each sticker is quite small and shaped in a half a circle shape.  Enough stickers so you can try this a few times.

Here’s how I put on Avon French manicure.  Some of my customers have said that it’s just too hard, not at all. It’s actually very easy and is just as good as the salon French Manicure. Let me show you how. Add the sticker strips to your clean nails. Add them just were you would like the white nail polish from the French Manicure to start. Don’t worry about sticking the sticker to your finger around the sides just make sure it is stuck down on the nail as shown.

Avon Stickers

Now your nails are ready for the white nail polish. Add the polish to the tips of your nails up to the sticker strip.  I usually do two coats, leave your nails to dry.

Avon white Nail Polish added to the tips of my nails

Once the tips are dry slowly peel off the white stickers. If the white looks like it has gone over the nail a bit then don’t worry, as once you add the glitter nail polish at the end you will not see this. You could get a cotton bud and clean the nail if you like.

Now add the Nude shade across the whole of the nail and put two coats on.

After the Nude nail polish has dried, add some glitter nail polish on top I have used silver one from the pack of glitter nail polishes that I bought  from Claires Acessorise I thinks the set of glitter nail polishes was £8.00. The pack had a silver, gold, red, pink, blue and purple glitter nail polishes.

After this has dried finally add top coat to finish your nails. I know this is a lot of coats but it does last for about 2 weeks, well it does for me.
