I would love to get them all the time but a) they are super expensive and b) like all things that look great – they are not good for you (When I mean they are not good for you I mean they are not good for your eyelashes. c) who has the time to sit still for 3 plus hours to get this done!
However if you do get this done make sure you head to Tips and Toes next time you need your eye lash extensions

Natural looking, lightweight lashes that you can’t feel on your eyes. The length is ideal as they don’t look too fake. You get around 140 individual lashes and the difference is subtle, but noticeable and attractive. The extensions will maintain their fullness for a good two weeks.

Plus easier options
Lash extensions can definitely get you noticed, but what if you’re on a tighter budget this month? Try lash tinting instead, which costs a very affordable Dhs60 at The Nail Spa. The treatment tints each single lash – even the teeny ones – defining your eyes in a way that mascara simply can’t. The treatment generally lasts between four and six weeks.
