current henna designs; it's all kind of messy right now but you

I'm not really concerned about having any skin reactions to the nail
polish itself right now, but I wasn't sure if anyone had input on the
effects of nail polish remover when I take this stuff off. Do you
think that the rxn between the nail polish and the acetone will
create any [transdermal] problems? My initial belief is that it
won't, since we use nail polish remover all the time and most nail
polish users have probably gotten polish on their skin sometimes.

In any case, nail polish really produces a nice effect; gold polish
looks especially good, though the regular nail polish brush I used

nail polish to do accent work on myself from now on, at least when I
want my henna to look extra special or cool. I don't know if I'll
take the full plunge and douse my hands with polish anytime soon!
Another interesting technique comes from the "Cute mehandi designs'
