So, how do you like it? Do these pictures make you want one? Personally, I am a big lover of Mehndi. My sisters and I always wait for Eid to come so that we can make our own henna paste and start doing the designs. If this intricate but complex design overwhelms you, you can always start with something simpler. Soon you will be wanting to have something gorgeous like the above ones.
