Lately I have been scrolling through Instagram with more purpose, since I found the incredible Forever Radiant spa and had such a wonderful treatment (see The Oxygen Facial from my I Tried It series) who else could be hiding?
One thing I have always been very curious about is lash lifts and lash extensions. I really rarely wear falsies though I love how they make a look pop. After some costing research and details on how often I would have to attend to both options, I chose a lash lift. The cost was not as overwhelming as lash extensions (due to the need for fills) and lasted longer (up to 8 weeks with proper care) so I jumped in head first.
After extension research and call, I decided on Polish as my choice and booked. The owner was polite and professional with great directions and answered all my concerns right away. In addition she was having a special that included a pedi which I sorely needed. The next day I was booked and ready.
The location itself was not ideal, tucked away behind a major building, it seemed a bit odd and I had a little trouble finding the entrance but once inside uptempo music was in order and the space was clean and tidy if a little dated. (The proprietor mentioned she would be moving to a more modern space shortly).
After laying down she placed caps over my eye lids and I felt the liquid being applied and lashes pulled back. It felt so strange, not painful, just odd. I kept thinking I felt something in my eye but it was mind over matter knowing all these liquids were being so close the eye area. To be honest, I lost track of time a little as I fell asleep for a short while. Soon enough it was over and she removed the pads and cleaned up with instructions to keep them dry for 24 hours, not to use waterproof mascara or rub at them too hard and a little spoolie for brushing.
Surprise, this morning my lashes were curled right back and made a huge difference in the appearance of my makeup. If I had know about this I would have done it years ago. Here are my before and after pictures with the proof and after I added my Milk Makeup Kush Mascara, I looked invincible. (Photos are just after the lift).
Would I do it again? Hell yeah. Now I want to try the extensions! Find the lash tech @polish_tt if you are this way.
