When I henna a bride I feel that both the bride and I put the emphasis on her palms, mostly because it stains so well but also because it figures so prominently in the wedding photos. I love doing henna on the palms but it’s sad that the feet are often neglected; there aren’t even that many photos of them. I really love designs for the feet because the canvas seems to offer so many possibilities. For example I absolutely LOVE the slipper design.
I don’t get a lot of requests for the full coverage foot design but there are so many gorgeous ones out there that I hope I get a chance to try it out one day. I think these full designs look so gorgeous with a simple strappy sandal.
