HOW TO: DIY VOLUME TILES

HOW TO: 
MAKE VOLUME LASH TILES ON THE LOW LOW

A POST FOR LASH ARTISTS


For real though, this glass tile cost .91 cents, after tax. 

Go to your local home hardware store (I purchased the glass tile above at Rona in Richmond) & head to the tile section. 
Oftentimes you can find pre-cut pieces of tile, or select from a large variety & request them to cut it to your required dimensions. 

TIP | I used to make volume tiles using larger pieces

Pro: You can fit two diameters (ie. .06/.07) in a variety of lengths (ie. 7-13mm) and have extra room for a piece of micropore tape (to dispense your adhesive onto) and a bubble (if that's the fanning method you prefer)
Con: Difficult to store as they take more space including taking up space on the pillow or bed beside your clients head. 


Arrange your lashes from longest (at the top) to shortest (at the bottom). This way the long lengths won't be in your way, or your view when picking up the shorter ones hiding behind it. This small tip makes a big difference.

Prior to removing the lashes from the tray & placing them directly onto your new tile, de-tack them on the back of your hand. If you don't, the notorious paper backing will become adhered to the tile making it difficult to remove quickly when you have to replace the lash strip mid appointment! 
* if you prefer lash trays without paper backing, try EBL lashes or Bella lashes they remove off of tiles or hand palettes like a dream!

Invest in a label maker. You can get them at places like Wal-mart for around $20-25. They will make your lash life organized. I use it to label my tiles, even making a baby one for my adhesive with the expiration date on it so I know exactly when to toss it!
