35 Latest White Henna Designs That Will Look fabulous On Hands!
Social media is flooded with beautiful women sharing pictures of their hands and feet decorated with white henna designs, popularly known as ‘white henna’. A few months back when I was browsing through pictures of Boho Style I came across this beautiful body art. At first I thought white mehndi art was associated with hippie women or Bohemian babes . White henna does feel beautiful, lovely and free and hence we can understand why many boho inspired ensemble and looks have hands or any other body parts adorned with this decorative art. Later I saw many women sharing pictures of beautiful white henna on insta and pinterest, that is when I did a full research on what white henna was and where it was popular.
White Henna’s Popularity & its Application!White henna does look like it was inspired by the traditional mehendi art in which the mehndi is removed completely which leaves a beautiful deep red or orange tint. These beautiful white patterned mehndi art can be great for wedding season or for those who want something different than the traditional mehndi art. Lets take a dig into what ‘White henna art’ actually is and where it was popularized.
Introduction To White Henna:Henna art is very popular among Asian countries and is slowly becoming a favorite among the western fashionistas. Many of the bride’s in western countries have opted for temporary white hanna art to go with their beautiful white wedding gowns. The traditional henna art is where the mehndi or the henna paste is derived from henna plant leaves . The henna leaves are crushed, grinded to a fine paste and mixed with other natural ingredients like tea leaves and eucalyptus oil to give a fabulous dark color . The traditional mehndi stays upto weeks and leaves a tint which is red, brownish red or orange. But unlike the traditional art of applying henna with a cone white henna is applied with cosmetic white paste or a paint brush.
It is actually surprising to see that white henna doesn’t have any significance to to henna mehndi at all. It is purely body paint and is temporary, very similar to the flash tattoos or Mica tattoos. But the patterns drawn are exactly like the ones we draw with traditional henna mehndi cones. White mehndi doesn’t stain your skin like the traditional henna made from henna leaves.
What is White Henna made from?Have you always wondered what white henna is? White Henna is white in color with metallic or glitter accents on it. The white color unlike henna leaves is achieved with white body paint, white glitter and adhesive. The whole white henna look can also be achieved with white or metallic temporary tattoos. Intricate beautiful patterns are designed from acrylic or craft paint. If you have come across #WhiteHenna photos either on twitter or Instagram , then you must know that the white henna mehndi patterns are actually just face paint that washes off at the end of the day. You won’t find any white paint that will ever leave a stain on the body like the actual henna mehndi does. Body paint is a great way to decorate your hands with white henna or you could even use acrylic or craft paint to get this trendy look. Not to forget that white henna just lasts for the day. At the end of the day you have to part ways with the beautiful art as it is more of a temporary tattoo henna.
Why Its Popular?If you are a mehandi person you definitely would have seen many people using and flaunting designing made from cosmetic craft paint. White henna is popular not just in the west but throughout the world. You must also have seen it in the hands of ladies at weddings or festivals. White henna is quite popular and an exciting alternative for people with darker skin tones as the white looks absolutely gorgeous on tanned skin.
