Choose a good mehandi brand or use home-made mehandi paste. A good mehandi cone is a must for proper mehandi application, especially the intricate ones. Hold the mehandi just like a pen and draw the designs on the hands. There are numerous designs to choose from. Arabian, Indian and Pakistani designs are the most popular ones in bridal mehandi.

If you want your mehandi to be dark, then apply the mix of sugar syrup and lemon juice on the mehandi design at regular intervals. You can dip a cotton in the mix and apply it gently over the mehandi. If possible, leave the mehandi overnight, this would ensure best results. After taking the mehandi off, do not wash your hands immediately. Try not to wash it for four to five hours.  The mehandi would get darker in colour as time passes and would reach its maximum within this time.

Good brands of mehandi would not have any negative effects on your skin. If by any chance, you are feeling an irritation on your skin, and if you feel the irritation getting stronger, then wash it off immediately and consult a skin doctor.
