I could dye

It was a fun day with my sister. You know. Shopping. Trying on clothes. Giving opinions. Giggling.

Then Sis had the bright idea to get her eyelashes dyed. I jumped on the bandwagon and decided to one up her. Lashes AND brows. Bring it!

We lucked into a walk-in appointment at a fancy little spa in the area. Weren't we feeling the magic?

The nice lady put tape under our eyes, to prevent the dye from seeping all over everywhere.

When removing my sister's tape, the nice lady took skin. OUCH!

When removing my tape, the nice lady said "OOOPS!" The tape didn't prevent seeping.

She tried to remove the oops with some kind of acid.
(Well, that's what it felt like, as I jumped out of the treatment bed. )

Yes. I went home looking like this. Nope. I didn't have to pay for the Alice Cooper look. Wasn't I lucky?

Thankfully, it's worn off now. And my sister's skin grew back, too.

Note to self: From this day forward, avoid the nice lady at the fancy spa.

Happy Day!


ps. This didn't ruin our day. As soon as we got in the car, we called Mom and the laughing started up all over again!


  1. Ouch is right!! I guess it could have been worse? At least you didn't have to pay for it.

  2. OMG! Recently my hairdresser asked if I wanted my eyebrows dyed (got my hair dyed a bit darker than normal) and I just couldn't bring myself to have her do it...too damn scared! Now I know I will never try it - !! :) LOL!


  3. I'm laughing Mindy! That is exactly the kind of stuff my sister and I get ourselves into!

  4. OMG! Good thing you didn't have the tatoo lipstick! Your lips might have ended up orange or something.

  5. A good sense of humour is where it's at, Mindy and you've certainly go one! It will get you through... :)

  6. Ha Mindy Girl... you are beautiful eyebrows and all.
    I will take note and learn from your day.
    Have a wonderful week
