: You've mentioned NewSkin as an alternative to wrapping and the
: sugar/lemon do you remove NewSkin once you've put it
: on? Does it wash off, or does it peel off? Can you leave it on?

Most of it comes off if you steam repeatedly. The rest comes off if
you rub it with oil. If you want it off fast, or have little bits left
clinging, nail polish remover does the job and doesn't hurt the henna.

The good things about New Skin are that it nails down fine detail
perfectly, like you've just laminated your henna, and it doesn't
attract stinging insects like sugar does. I use it when I have to be
picky about perfect detail and dark stain .... when it absolutely
positively HAS to be superdark and superperfect, and I plan to steam
to max out the color.
