This is Sarah and Patrice, and they were super curious about the mermaid lashes and thought it would be cool to try them out.

Since they're not cheap, the ladies made a pact to not cry for the next few weeks to avoid messing up their mermaid lashes. Ha!

They went straight to the pro. Clementina Richardson is a celebrity lash expert and the owner of Envious Lashes in New York City.

Clementina determined the shape of their eyes, and how to better contour them before working her magic.

She gave Patrice a lift to open up the eyes using purple, blue and black.

"Maybe I'll throw in another color. I may surprise ya."

She chose to complement Sarah's blueish-green eyes by using a lot of blue lashes. Nice!

Then Patrice got down to business by dipping each lash in adhesive and applying them by hand.

You can't get your lashes wet for at least 24 to 48 hours after getting them because it takes at least that long for the adhesive to completely dry.
