Once your henna is dried fully, apply the paste all over your mehndi with a cotton ball. To avoid erasing the intricate designs, dab lightly, try not to rub it.

While using lemon juice and sugar mixture to dab on your hands, you may feel itchy sometimes due to the acid in the lemon. The feeling will go away when your skin is familiar with it.

Do not overuse the paste because applying too much lemon juice may make the henna discolored instead of being darker as expected.
