Feeling Festive

Henna for the Holidays, originally uploaded by schmidwix2.

Yesterday was the Winter Solstice, Eid el Kabir and four days before
This design still has the wet henna on it which will soon fall off.
This is a traditional design - much nicer than the flowers they always want to do.

Oh! The designs are gorgeous! How long does the henna die last?

The design stays on your hand for about two weeks.
Olive oil or hand cream - and not too much dishwashing helps.
I would never have a permanent ttto but LOVE henna.
