Indian Wedding Nails First Then Mehndi

Indian Wedding Nails First Then Mehndi recommends that brides get ready for their Indian wedding in that order – nails first and then mehndi. Many bride wonder about this. The wedding week can be hectic and you want to have all of your appointments in place several weeks before the wedding. And make sure to book appointments in the optimal order.

Brides will be much better off if they get their nails done first, followed by mehndi after. According to master henna artist, Neha Assar says that the chemicals in the nail polish and nail polish remover can impact your mehndi and may cause it to fade faster.

Additionally Neha recommends getting a gel or drip manicure or even acrylic nails. Mehndi will not stain your nails but the chemicals in nail polish remover will cause mehndi to fade.
