What's that saying about Rome? Well, when in Korea, dye your hair black and get eyelash extensions. I'm not going to name any names, but there are plenty of teachers at KIS who have had these eyelash extensions. The eyelash extensions look so good, but still manage to look real. I finally decided it was time for me to jump on this bandwagon and give it a shot. Marathon runner Katie Hobbs joined me too!
We followed the surprisingly accurate and easy directions of "it's in Jeongja behind the Quiznos" but the place was closed! We were told most businesses are "resting" on Sundays. We were so disappointed.

Nail 6st didn't have any appointments until 6pm. I called Jim and made a half assed offer to come home and take the kids to the playground for a few hours and then go back, but he told me I could just stay out! The whole afternoon! Until late! Isn't that great? So Katie and I went to Lotte, then Starbucks, then dinner at La Vida Loca on Cafe Street in Jeonga

This is the amount of chips provided.
(and that's cheez-whiz next to it) but I'll take what I can get!
They have these strips with individual lashes (that's what's taped to my forehead). The piece of tape on the left of my eye has 2 blobs of black glue. She would take single lash, dip it in the glue and glue it to one of my lashes (I think-I'm not sure what's glued to what). They key to the whole thing is to lay still and DON'T OPEN YOUR EYES.
|Shhhh, Katie's sleeping|
|Keep your eyes closed Katie!|
Here's a quick video. At the very beginning of the video you'll see her dip the eyelash into the glue, then she afixes it to Katie's eyelash.

Nail 6st is on the North side of Jeongja. Start by finding Butterfingers Pancakes. Nail 6st is across from the GS25 that is across the street from Butterfingers. It sounds confusing to read it, but once you're there it makes sense. It's next door to a Dunkin Donuts, but that describes most places in Seoul.
