    Highly recommended - check this out!

    I got this as a gift and I LOVE IT! The instructions in the illustrated book really helped me figure out how to do this, and the pattern book gave me great ideas with practice pages so I didn't mess up. Excellent value!

    I would have given it one star if i could. I just bought this three days ago, mixed it p and left it overnight
    like the instructions said. the first problem- the recipe calls for 1-4 teaspoons of lemon juice. That's supposed to be enough liquid to turn the henna to "the consistency of yogurt". I put in 4 tsp and it wasn't NEARLY 
    enough for even half the packet. I figured it was just an error- maybe they meant 1-4 tablespoons? i kept adding lemon juice until it was the right consistency, and i ended up with about 9 tsp total. The next I went to put it on and there weren't any applicator bags in the package, which the box claims are part of the kit. There was, however, an applicator bottle, which kept getting clogged; I was still able to 
    get my design on with only a little difficulty. Despite my initial worries about the recipe, i was super excited and I was really expecting this to work. It didn't, not at all. It left NO STAIN on my arm whatsoever. even after leaving it on for hours. I tried to go to the website listed on the box and it no longer exists. What a waste of my time and money.

    Got this for my niece who got together with some friends and had a fun afternoon. Going to the movies would have been WAY more expensive and not as interactive. For about $10 bucks you can't beat this. It's even *slightly* educational but really it's just about fun. I washed mine off right away but they did the whole lemon thing and really got the color to set in. I saw it in the B&N store on 7th ave and thought it was worth a try... glad i picked it up.
