this is mehendi
Posted by zulala, 19 Mar, 2009
Just before a wedding, according to our customs, mehendi is applied on the bride friends and family... Mehendi is a natural dye and made using crushed leaves from the henna plant... when wet it is this color, as it dries off it crumbles and drops off, and washes off easily...
Once dried the color appears dark orangey/ brown... very pretty... and lasts for a week at the most... this I snapped while it was being applied for a friend !!
