White Henna Tattoos – A Replacement of Traditional Henna Designs?
Generally used by make-up artists to add attachments to an actor’s look, such as a false nose or elf ears; this white body adhesive is one of the emerging mehndi design trends creating a rage internationally. Not a popular thing in India yet, this white henna can surely enhance your bridal look if you wish to ditch the traditional mehndi and take a bold decision to match this up with trending lehenga colours of mint green, tangerine, aquamarine or strawberry, for instance.
Since this is not a hit in India until now, finding a white henna designer could be difficult. The white henna stays on for a week or so. Thus, you could enquire with your bridal mehndi designer if they have ever used it before and could have a test and trial of how a tiny design looks.
When you finally decide to go ahead with it, ensure you choose elaborate designs that are visible enough to make an impact.
