Habba Alert: Black Henna Fingertips

By | May 1, 2012

Last year it was the Henna glove (post), this year it seems to be the Henna fingertips in blackest of black.

I’ve seen several pictures online and on instagram of stylish girls sporting the black henna fingertips in black. Some keep the fingers black, others paint the nails some crazy vibrant color that will shine against the blackness of the finger tips. I couldn’t use any of those pictures since they are the people’s own y3ni so I drew my own version :p Excuse my artistic talents but I guess the idea is clear.

What do you think? Myself? Well, ever since I was a child I’ve loathed henna. I hated the smell, the way they made pouches out of your hands covered in fabric, the tint of orange, the mess. I might have been the only little girl in the 80’s who ran a mile away whenever I saw or smelt a whiff of henna. Never a fan, never will be.

As a child one of my aunts told me, in order to get me to put henna on, that heaven smelled like henna and I started screaming hysterically that I didn’t want to go to heaven. I didn’t calm down until I was told I had the option to not smell henna in heaven. God only knows how true that is.

Anyhow back to the moment. I have to say I liked the henna glove better. Black fingertips look like something had caught on fire and was burned badly. Its kinda scary unless you are going with a goth look which, for the love of god, don’t since only 0.5% of Kuwaiti girls can pull that off. I wonder how it would look on an bright orange tan though?

What do you think? Would you go for the black henna fingertips habba?

    i love it, im only concerned about the color when it fades away…would it be gray? imagine gray tips on a tanned hand?

      Or on the nails. It used to take forever for the color on the nails to go. Will they go black then grey?

    i might do it …
    i know its crazy but strange 😀

    No the Jannan does not smell like Henna, the Prophet of Allaah S.A.W.did not like the smell of henna so his wife Ayesha R.A. wouldnt apply it on her hands either.

    Perhaps someone just said that as the words Jannah and henna rhyme!

    • danderma says:

      9ej? Didn’t know the prophet didn’t like the smell before! Ashwa the heaven smelling like henna is just a family rumor to get me to wear it then!

  8. Reem says:

    I didn’t like the black fingertips, but I might like the orange henna fingertips, especially for ramadan. Inshallah if I am back to K-town for ramadan I would definately put the orange henna around my fingers .. I want to do something traditional 😛 wila shrayich danderma ;p?

    • danderma says:

      Erm, believe it or not I think the black are better than the orange! O will take forever to go!
