Red & Black Mendhi HNT


On Monday, I shared my post, Attack of the Mendhi Twins in which I tell about my hands being stamped with textile printing ink while in Bangalore.

A couple of weeks later while in Delhi, I got my hands and arms hennaed again, only this time for real. What you see is black and red henna. First the outline is drawn with the black and then filled in with the red. It takes about three hours to dry. That's long enough to smoke 2 beedees, drink three cups of chai, chat with crazy Russians, imposter as a travel agent as I assist a Frenchman inquiring about Kerala, and listen to a handful of c/ds.

Oh yeah! I got my feets done too.
Happy HNT, Everyone!

barman said...

I went on a post frenzy and my 55 is up. Laughing at G-man's comment at that thought had entered my mind.

I'm really impressed by what you can do in three hours! And after that you even looks amazing :-)

Stealth said...

Wow! Sorry I am late; that looks incredible!

I love henna- yours is fabulous.

Love the HNT Susie! I just don't have patience for hennaing it takes too long to take effect! Tip! Just smear a little eucalyptus oil over that & see the color turn dark red within half that time!
