My henna belly!

It was my friend's first time EVER working with henna- I think she did a pretty good job considering! That pic was taken before I rubbed the dried henna off... I'm going to do that now right before bed. I'll post another pic in a few days (assuming baby hasn't arrived) when the color intensifies.

Love the henna! That's an awesome job it looks like, especially for someone's first time!

It's beautiful! If you rub lemon juice on it a few times a day it helps the colours get darker.

Oh, thanks for that tip! Seems like it would do the opposite (as lemon juice has a tendency to lighten, not darken), but must be something about the reaction, huh? The design on my hand turned noticeably darker over night... so I'm waiting to see what happens with my belly now... I ended up leaving the henna on over night, and today the belly design is pretty light orange.

DH IS HERE!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would say it took her about an hour to do that... I wasn't keeping track of time very well... but, yeah, about an hour. And that included taking a few breaks to rest her back, etc.
