Beautiful Leg Mehendi Designs: Decorating hands and feet with dried Henna or Mehendi is an ancient culture that dates back to the Vedic era. In many ancient texts, the mention of Mehendi art is a common thing. Mehendi ritual is a pre-wedding ceremony in many cultures and in this ceremony the brides not only do henna on their hands but also on their feet. Henna is also done on Karwa Chauth, Teej, Bhai Duj, Eid-ul-adha other than marriage functions. Just like hand henna designs, leg henna is also a very intricate form of art. In simple and small leg mehndi, the design is drawn only on the sides, fingers and the centre of the feet while bridal or complex designs often reach up to the knee. Here are some awesome latest leg henna ideas including ankle-length, half-leg, and full-length designs.
# Full Feet Peacock Mehendi for the Brides
Intricate peacock Mehendi is a classic example of Rajasthani and Mughal blend henna decoration. These designs depict a central peacock motif arranged with heavy filler patterns of Mughal style. It is one of the best full leg design ideas for bridal henna.
# Traditional Circular Leg Mehndi Design
This is the age-old foot mehndi style in which the sides of the feet and fingers are designed with abstract patterns leaving the nail area and the center clean. A circular design is generally placed in the middle blank area decorated with matching patterns of the sidelines. The design is very simple but looks quite elegant for any occasions.
# Lotus Pattern Half-leg Henna
Lotus pattern hennas look absolutely stunning if designed in the inverse color method. Here the petals of the flower are left blank and the background of the lotus petals are solidly filled with henna. Such henna designs often use various filler motifs but the lotus designs remain center of attraction.
# Half Filled Chequers with Payal Design
Payal design is quite famous in contemporary foot mehndi styles. Here the main design is done within a strip resembling the jewelry anklet. This particular design uses the chequer fillers to decorate the front section of the feet. Those who are opting for heavy lehenga or ankle-length dress will love the style as it covers only the exposed area of the feet.
# Simple Sidewise Creeper Design
This is a pure Arabic style henna design using flower and creeper patterns. This contemporary design only covers the ankle and one side of the foot. The rest are kept clean but the fingertips and nails are solid-filled with henna just like the traditional Arabic designs. This design looks good with asymmetric dresses and fusion attires.
# Half-leg Rose Design with Junk Fillers
Rose designs are quite a new thing in feet henna and that is why this design is one of a kind. Here the delicate rose motifs are the main focus. The rest of the design uses abstract artistic filler works. Though this type of design is best suited on bridal mehndi it looks equally beautiful on occasions like Teej and Karwa Chauth.
# Full Leg Mughlai Mehendi with Elephant Motif
Mughlai Mehendi designs like this use dome-shaped motifs with heavy filler designs. The intricacy of the design is truly astonishing. This particular design is evolved around motifs of elephants. Elephants signify prosperity and grandeur in Indian culture and that is why this kind of design is preferred in bridal ceremonies.
# Full-length Shankha Pattern Rajasthani Henna
Those who are looking for a traditional full-length mehendi design will love this pure Rajasthani mehendi design. This design is based on mandala theme but the use of ‘shankha’ or conch shell design with light floral fillers makes it look elegant and unique.
# Sidewise Mandala Design
This is a new-age version of traditional circular mandala style mehndi designs. Here only the half portion of mandala is designed at the corners of the feet and the rest of the feet is decorated with sparse fillers and sideline patterns.
# Floral Leg Mehendi
This is an ever-young leg henna design using abstract floral motifs and foliage designs. The design can be done at the centre of the feet but it looks equally good if the theme flowers are placed at the corners or diagonal positions. This kind of design looks good on every age and occasion.
