My Best & Worst Wedding

These designs came from various sources that the family provided. The inside arm work was designed by the bride herself, a very accomplished henna artist. The bride and groom faces were inspired by some designs in a book of the bride's. Sadly, her colour didn't come out well at all. I think she didn't give the colour enough time to develop and put on chuna too soon (just after removing the henna). A friend there told me I should use Indian henna because as soon as you take it off, it's black underneath. Well, that sounds like PPD to me, because henna is not black! Anyway, I did a design on me Wednesday night, using the same henna, left it on all night and that was one week ago and my design is now in that final ghost stage. I definitely will never use anything other than Yemeni henna again, but still, I think the bride was hasty in her application of chuna, because I know that chuna does darken (a one time quick oxidation) henna, but the henna will always get darker on its on than it would if it had not be chuna'd at all. Alas. I hope this does't hurt my business for next year! My mom passed on my info to a waiter/friend at a local Indian restaurant though. She wants 20% as an agent fee ;)
