The mehndi designs are made on both the sides of hands and on foot too. Though some people prefer simple mehndi designs for hands.

The general process of the application of mehndi paste on the hands and foot in India involves the filling of the paste in a conical container made of polythene or soft plastic which is then pressed softly while hovering over the hands according to the design while the mehndi paste comes out of the cone tip and settling over the hand. The conical surface of the container doesn’t actually comes in contact with the surface of the hand. After the designing of mehndi over the hand, lemon and mehndi oil are applied over hand and then it is allowed to dry. The mehndi color gets deeper with drying time and can be accelerated by heating the mehndi over the hand by holding the hands near the heat source.
