I just discovered the disappointing results of my second atempt at
henna tattoo. Like the first time, there is no stain. The paste comes
off and there's nothing underneath but a few small tan smudges. I've
been doing the tops of my feet (toes to ankles). I've cleansed and
exfoliated and prepped with rubbing alcohol, applied my design fairly
thick. The first time, I used the lemon&sugar solution to moisten,
and I left the paste on from about 3pm until the following morning.
This time I used New Skin liquid bandage to seal while the design was
still a little damp and left it on all day ( a good 8hrs.), and
again, nothing . When the paste comes off, it leaves barely a trace.
I even wrapped one foot in plastic and sat with a hot water bottle on
it to see if it would make a difference, but nooooo. What am I
I should note that I'm using a pre-mixed henna paste that comes in a
tube. The tube just says "HENNA body art". Can anyone tell me what's
going on? Thanks so much for any help! -nonn
