Yep. 😄 You heard it right. 👍 It’s henna that is silver. Silver henna. What? 🤷♀️
So what is it exactly?
Well it does not come out of a henna cone and it’s not a paste. So it’s not your traditional henna. 🤔
Have you heard of those gold and silver temporary tattoos? They have been all over instagram at one point. 📷 Well guess what? This silver henna is actually a silver temporary tattoo that is designed to resemble henna. 😜 So cute. 🎀 It’s super easy to apply. 👌 You just stick it onto your skin and drench it with water. 💦 And Voila. You now have an intricate henna design on your hand that you didn’t even have to squeeze out of a cone. 😉 Aaaand what’s even better… It’s silver aka metallic aka chrome or whatever else you want to call this color.
The downside is it only lasts few days. 😳 Maybe even less then that. It all depends on how often you wash your hands and if you’re careful not to scrub the tattoo off. But it will look so cute while it lasts. 😍 Totally wort it. I guess the downside is also an upside since you don’t have to commit to having a design on your hand for a month. 🙃 Did I mention it’s super cheap. 💵😮 You can get it on sites like ebay and amazon for just few bucks. 💻
Yes, you can get the same thing in gold. 👑 But after trying these I think I like the silver better. I think it stands out more then the gold against the skin. Makes sense, because most people have some yellow undertone to their skin. 👱🏼♀️ But still, gold is cute too and it’s all a matter of preference. 😊
To apply silver henna
As I mentioned before It’s super easy to apply. 😃 It came on a rectangular sheet of paper with a bunch of other designs. So I just used scissors to cut out the one I wanted. 📄✂️ I put the other tattoos away for later. 🦋
Then I got a little bowl and filled it with warm water. 🚰 The water doesn’t have to be warm. It’s just more comfortable that way. 💧😊 There’s a clear layer covering the tattoos. I peeled it off and pressed the silver design right against the skin. 🎨 Now it’s time to wet it. 💦 I used a disposable little makeup sponge. 👄 If you don’t have that, a cotton ball will do just fine. I kept wetting the paper until it was drenched in water. 💧💧💧 Once the paper is fully wet it will slide right off. And Voila. There’s the design. YAY! 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉
