You Can Get Your Lashes And Nails Done At The Same Time At This Japanese Beauty Salon... and It's not expensive!

Published on Jun 08, 2019

Hi, I’m Agent A, studying IT in the school of UOL.

Right after exams ended, I planned for a short getaway to Bangkok to celebrate end of term!

As I was having exams previously, I didn't have time to touch up my lashes and my nails. So basically, my lashes look quite sparse... like this:

As the getaway was pretty spontaneous, I didn't have much time to prettify myself before the trip. I asked Agent G if she had any salons to recommend for a good lash extension and nail colour at the same time, a few days before!

Ta dah! Like the genie from Aladdin, the all resourceful Agent G recommended me to try the hidden gem Allumer Japanese Beauty Salon

She was absolutely right! They did actually have availability for lash extension and nail colour at the same time so I made an appointment the next day.

First Impressions


It was my first time at Allumer Japanese Beauty Salon and I must say that I am thoroughly impressed.

The entrance was not easy to find and I had to walk up this flight of stairs to get to what seemed like a secret hideaway.

The effort was absolutely worth it though... the salon itself looked so pretty! With its wooden textures and clean design, this place is exactly what I thought Japan would look like. 

It almost felt like I "popped by" Japan just by coming here!

Step 1: Consultation


The moment I stepped in, Akiko my beautician and lash technician greeted me. I was a tad bit late but she was very gracious and didn't scold me (whew!) 

Instead, she patiently walked me through a consultation questionnaire to understand about my condition for today and also my preferences for the services.

I'm pleasantly surprised because the process was very smooth and her command of English is very good! 

She went through the questionnaire with me before escorting me to the next area to begin the service.

Step 2: Eyelash extensions

I love it that they are situated on the second level of a shophouse as it felt very cozy and had lots of sunlight in. She brought me to a very comfy reclining chair right beside the windows so it was all bright and airy. Akiko then very thoughtfully placed a blanket on top of my lap to make sure that I was kept comfortable.

At this point, she began to consult with me with regards to the type of lash extensions I would like to get. As I go for lash extensions regularly, I knew exactly what I want. I prefer the more dramatic CC curls with length ranging from 9mm to 12mm. Coloured lashes are interesting but they are not for me so I gave it a pass. She checked my lash condition and verified the shape I would like ie. cute style before she proceeded.

The first thing she did was to paste removable stickers to the areas around my eyes.

This helped to protect my skin while I got my eyelashes done. They were very comfortable and easy to apply (and remove), so there's nothing to worry about even if you have sensitive skin.

Then, she carefully cleaned my eyelashes with Q-tips. This might seem unimportant to some, but it is extremely important to apply the eyelash extensions on bare lashes to help them adhere and stay on better.

Eeks, look how sparse my eyelashes look without mascara!

Akiko started to apply each lash extension to my eye individually, one strand at a time.

Slowly but surely, the shape started to form. Going for individual lashes requires more time, but it's worth it because it lasts so much longer. All while looking more natural as they flutter on their own and don't fall off in big clumps.

Time for the last few pieces to finish up!

Step 3: Pedicure


While having my lashes done, they performed a gel pedicure at the same time. How convenient, don't you think?

Given that I have SO MUCH to do before the getaway, this is a really good idea to save time!

Before I laid down to get my lash extensions, the therapist showed me a large tray of colours for me to choose from.

These colours are usually on promotion at $60 for pedicure. Given their level of service, I think that is quite affordable actually!

Can you guess what colour I choose?

Soon after she began the lash extension, the therapist began the classic gel pedicure.

As usual the first step is cleansing. She used a pusher to clear the toe nails of dirt and dead cells.

She then buffed them to ensure a smooth base for the gel pedicure.

Obviously I couldn't see what she was doing but everything felt comfortable.

Once the toe nails are clean, she started to apply the base coat.

Then the nail colour. 

Yep, I chose HOT PINK!

Don't judge me!

After each layer of colour, she used a portable LED light to dry the polish.

Super convenient that I could stay laying down!

In just over an hour, both Japanese beauticians were done.

I was amazed at how natural they looked even though they added so much length and volume.

The tightness of the curl is just right too, making my eyes look more awake and open.

It isn't just my lashes that look good.  The hot pink brightened up my feet as much as the eyelash extensions did to my face!

Overall Thoughts


I enjoyed my time at Allumer Japanese Beauty Salon. The Japanese beauticians were not only polite, they were very attentive throughout. 

I felt like a queen as I had two of them make my eyelashes and nails look good at the same time! All I had to do was to relax and sleep on the comfy bed for an hour or so and my lashes and nails look so good afterwards. As this is a pure Japanese salon, I note that they use Japanese products for both the lashes and the nails. I was also glad that the lash glue used was very gentle; my eyes are very sensitive and had flared up previously at other salons which caused my eye to sting. Not here - I woke up with my eyes feeling really good and comfortable and so really liked my time here!

At first I thought that such a service would be very expensive but when I was pleasantly surprised when I saw their special promotion for first timers.

$140 for UNLIMITED Single Lash Extension + One Colour Gel Pedicure (UP: $190)

Very affordable, don't you think?

Given their top notch service, this is definitely one of the most value-for-money beauty service I've tried. 

Overall, a highly recommended service for busy women who appreciate high quality service and love a great deal!
