During Chaitra Navratri, devotees keep fast from day to night to offer their puja to the forms of Maa Durga. On the first day of Chaitra Navratri, Maa Shailputri is worshipped. People also deck up in new clothes and decorate their homes during this festival. Women deck up in ethnic ensembles and decorate their hands and legs in mehndi to celebrate the special time of the year.

Mehndi ideas that can brighten up your Chaitra Navratri festivities:

Keep it minimal: Instead of decking up the entire hand and palm, we can choose to keep it minimal with less designs. We can cover half of the palm and add mehndi designs on the fingers to give it a sleek and minimal look.

Maa Durga designed mehndi: maa Durga is the epitome of feminine power and strength. Each form of the Goddess brings different types of strength to their devotees. To dedicate the festival to Maa Durga, we can make a minimal design of Goddess Durga and add it to our mehndi design.

Floral patterns: Floral patterns never go out of style. No matter what festival we are celebrating, a sleek floral design for mehndi on hands and feet can make our attire look better.

Sleek mehndi design on feet: In case you want to add more glam to your Navratri attire, we suggest that you go for sleek foot mehndi designs that can add more sass to your ethnic ensemble.
