It's been nice and warm
Last week I went to see a friend, a henna artist (remember she had done this two Christmases ago, already) and asked her to decorate me, something light for the summer.
This is how my feet looked when I got home:
Once I waited the required time, I had to unwrapped these puppies and dry scrapped them of the henna. which gave this:
This is what it looked like two days or so after:
It's been over a week already and sadly they started to fade some. It usually lasts about two weeks. When she had done my arm, I had made a boo boo. You're supposed to cream yourself, which I do, daily, with or without henna, but what I didn't know is that vitamin E is an anti-oxidant and will help remove henna. On my arm the design only stayed a few days, until I realised the cream/lotion I was using contained vitamin E. This time I've made sure there wasn't any vitamin in what I've used. The fact that I wear sandals which rubs on the area when it's hot and humid might be contributing to it's fading, but still, it does look pretty good.
Hubby says it doesn't do a thing for him, and that's fine, I did it for my pleasure. This was/is one of my Summer's treats! What is yours?
