Nicola does not use any stencils, she does all her henna free hand following a photo for reference. All henna done by Nicola is done with brown henna. To ensure your henna lasts a long time leave the henna paste on as long as possible, an hour at minimum for the best results. As the henna dries, wrap it in cling film and leave it on over night to achive the darkest henna possible. Keep your henna away from contact with water for a minimum of 6 hours, best results 24 hours.
After removal of henna paste, henna will appear orange but over 48 hour it will gradually darken and turn brown.
