Orbicular Mehndi Designs
Remember grandmother’s round motifs? My grandmom describes it as a typical ‘chand-tara (moon-star)’ design and I loved it every time I wore it as a child. Now evolved into beautiful neat impressions like a circle with few curvy lines and dots, back then these were probably the simplest and only type of designs. For the brides who love to sport minimal mehndi clad hands this is just your match. A circle on the palm and/or back is beautified with patterns inside. Change the plain outline of the circle by creating leaf-like or curvy designs. A gap between the palm’s motif and the finger design prints brings out the look even better. If this sounds simple, look into the picture where you can build around the circle (try any polygon instead of circle) adding more detail for a bridal look. Try making this design is by doing half polygon each on one palm; when you cup your palms together it completes the shape.
