Doesn't henna/mehndi look fab? It can do, if you get a good henna artist to apply it for you, and if you leave it on long enough...I don't know about you, but I'm a busy girl and I don't always have time to sit around waiting for it to dry, and picking a good henna artist can be a bit hit and miss!
Well, if you've got an occasion, and you're in a rush here's a quick fix for you: henna tattoo transfers. You know the type I mean, like these, you peel off the back, put it on your skin, apply water and then the design tranfers onto your skin.
Are they any good though?? Well, my lovely sister tried them out recently, and here's the verdict:
We applied it to the outside of the hand, and didn't use the whole design - we cut it up and left out the finger bits. Overall it looked really cool! Obvioulsy it didn't last as long as normal henna, 2-3 days, and towards the end it started to get a bit crinkly on your skin, but aside from that I think it worked really well as a quick-fix. Plus, if you cut it up you can use all the left-over bits as tattoo transfers for the rest of your body :)
