Fashion Henna

Fashion is everywhere, in everything. Yes, that means it in Henna too! You can flaunt a well made Henna just like a most beautifully woven dress, or a sparkling ring (and a right one can really complement your Henna!)

Henna now, is not what it was a decade ago. It has moved on from being monochromatic to a vivacious and exuberant art that glows like a firefly in a moonless night. Henna is in demand all around the year now!! It is not exclusive to wedding occasions. Girls, and now men too, flaunt a Henna for any and every occasion.

It is a personalised fashion accessory. You may not be able to afford that high street dress, but you can definitely afford a bespoke Henna design that will make you the centre of attention, and this makes Henna a perfect fashion accessory! You can get a new one for every occasion without burning a hole in your wallet. You can get all the glamour without the expense.

You don’t even have to worry about side effects of Henna. If you use completely natural Henna, you won’t have any skin reactions and allergies. Natural Henna is totally safe for you. You can go on and adorn a new one every now and then. And this not the best part yet!

The best part is that Henna is a mirror of your imaginative power! It can take any shape and design that you can think of. It can be bold, colourful, and shimmering, or it can be subtle and elegant! The choice is yours. Henna brings life to your attire, as well as your occasions.

Trendy Henna Designs


Since a long time, Henna designs have remained very similar. As the art of Henna making spread across land, local cultures started creating a massive impact on the Henna Designs. Some of these designs were lost in the pages of history, while a few made an everlasting impact. Commonly known design types are Arabic, Indian, Moroccan, and Mughalai. But as they say, Change is Inevitable, the turn of the millennium saw many new advents in the designs.

Today I will be talking about a few of most famous modern design types.

Glitter Henna


Glitter Henna is just regular Henna that is infused with glitter! But it takes Mehendi designs to a whole new level. Glitter Henna designs are not that hard to create either! If you can make designs with normal Henna, then you can create Glitter Henna as well. All you need are glitter henna cones!


Henna Tattoos


Henna Tattoos are on the rage all over the world. The reason for this is that since Henna is natural, it is completely safe for your skin. Special Henna tattoo cones do not contain harmful chemicals like PPD, which can cause reactions on your skin.

And since Henna is temporary, you can change your tattoos every now and then. Also, if you want to get a permanent tattoo, but are feeling dicey about how it will look, Henna tattoo can give you a clear picture. If you feel good about it, you can go ahead with the permanent one, or you can keep changing your tattoos as you wish since these are much cheaper than ink tattoos!

Nail paint Henna


An upcoming trend, nail paint Henna is creating amazing designs on nails with Henna. An innovate way of decorating your nails, Henna allows you to explore your creativity even more!

Stones (Gems) Henna


A beautiful step forward for Henna designing is adorning your designs with imitation stone, or if you have a heavy purse, you can get it with actual stones. Now that would be a priceless work of art!

A henna design that is studded with gems and stones will surely make you the centre of attention at any occasion!

So there we go! Henna designing is just not limited to plain henna designs. It has gone a step further to become a work of art in its own unique way! Did you know of any more ways to make Henna even better?? Do let me know in comments below.

How to Make the Perfect Mehendi Paste


Hello guys, hope you have mastered cone making by now, because now I will take you one step closer to making beautiful Mehendis.


To get the perfect Mehendi design, you need to have the perfect Mehendi paste; and that is what exactly I am going to teach you today!


Before we get started, you will need all these ingredients at hand. The quantities are for one cone. If you want to make more cones, multiply the quantity by the number of cones.


  • Henna powder (2 spoons), preferably triple refined, else normal will do.WhatsApp-Image-20160504 (1)
  • Water (Half cup)


  • Clove Oil (half tsp)
  • Mixed Oil/Saffron oil (half tsp)
  • Eucalyptus Oil (2 tsp)

  • A bowl
  • A spoon


Now once you have everything ready, turn on your favourite tunes and get mixing!!


  • Add the powder in the bowl and then add water to make a thick paste.


  • Then add clove oil and mix it well with the paste followed by saffron oil.


  • Now add the Eucalyptus oil and mix it perfectly as well.


  • Make sure you mix it well after adding every oil.


  • Once the paste is mixed, sprinkle 10-15 drops of water on the paste and then cover it with a lid. Set it aside for at least an hour and half. If you want the Mehendi to stain better, let it be for 3 hours


  • Once it is ready, stir it well, add some water to moisten the paste to make it smooth enough to pour into the cone easily.

A paste that has good texture will allow you to create artistic designs that will stain well.




If your Mehendi paste was well made, it will stain like this after 24 hours.


I hope you have understood how to create a perfect Mehendi, and keep in mind, Practice makes perfect. So keep practicing till you can make the paste will perfect consistency and texture.
