Why do some dark skinned muslim women have dyed finger tips?

Which country would these women be from?


But it has no design , it's just the fingertips dyed in solid colours. And only some women have it.

    'they' are not restricted to a country, muslims are spread out everywhere. in my country, Nigeria, it is called 'Laila' and is used to draw designs on their skin..almost like a tattoo, but using natural products (like flowers). however, over time it stains the fingertips (which is used in mixing or applying), giving it a usually reddish/coloured tinge.

    ok, when you are spending time with your son take him outside. (for an hour or so) Maybe if you have a porch/deck you can sit up there reading magazines and your son playing with toys. (That way you are spending time with your child and getting some sun) Also you can (if you have an outdoor set of furniture) have lunch if you're not working and still, you are spending time with your son and actually getting sun. Hope I helped! EDIT: Oh.... lol ok. Um since you cant go outside then your going to have to buy the spray tan. (Although if its not properly done then you turn orange... lol) But then if you go to a salon they can watch your child and still get the spray tan. (And its done by a proffesional too) ~Darcy

    It's henna, and women usually only do it when they're getting married, and they also draw designs on their hands along with the finger tips or when it's a holiday like Eid when you dress up and stuff.

    sometimes people will do it just for fun.
