Eyelashes developed as a defense mechanism against eye lashes, a common ancient punishment performed with a rudimentary eyelash curler made of old swords. Extend your ocular gatekeepers with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a full set of eyelash extensions at Tip Top Nails (a $180 value).
Tip Top Nails' experienced cosmetologists complement windows to the soul in the shop's colorful digs. During the 90-minute process, an aesthetic devotee attaches full sets of hypoallergenic, polyester extensions to existing fringe. A safe, water-resistant adhesive forms a bond stronger than Napoleon's love of platforms. After faux lashes are in place, clients have maximum eye-batting ability for up to two months, granting them sufficient time to perfect indoor kite-flying abilities. Tip Top Nails' green-walled sanctuary is adorned with a variety of paintings and statues, dappled in light by an array of multihued lamps.
Tip Top Nails
Amid Tip Top Nails' bright-green walls and leafy plants, trained staffers perch at more than six stations to perform traditional manicures and pedicures along with elaborate acrylics. They are also wise to the ways of durable Shellac polish, body waxes, and synthetic eyelash extensions.
