Behind this towel is a freshly bronzed bod. It magically happened in less than 20 minutes for under $50 in my own bathroom. Nice!
I’m not sure what came over me last weekend, but I just couldn’t stand being so pale any longer! You could literally see through me. This winter I wasn’t even bundled up surviving blizzards in NYC, but I still came through it looking like Casper (coincidentally a nickname I hated in Middle School).
Anyway, instead of blinding my friends at the pool this weekend, I planned ahead and got a spray tan.
Before I called in Monica (the magician) for a spray down, I hesitated about getting the quick fix tan. Would it turn me orange and streaky since I had no color at all??! Then I thought, “Why am I scared? I’ve had it done before, and the color looked great!” To get up the courage again, I watched a video I made of the whole process. A couple minutes in, I was already dialing Monica to see when she could come over to my house.
Like many estheticians, Monica has started doing treatments for her clients in their homes at a reduced rate. I LOVE her facials too.
If you didn’t click through to the video, you’re now putting 2 and 2 together and questioning how naked do you really have to be in order to get a spray tan?? The answer isn’t “butt” naked, but that is the best method. You can wear “spa” panties as well, but I’m not sure how those lines come out.
My friend Kristen and I were comparing rates between Monica’s home visit which is $45 and the rate at a retail store, which will charge the same thing if you don’t buy a package. I don’t know about you, but I don’t need to buy a bundle of chemicals (yes, it concerns me) and I prefer to be in my birthday suit at home!
I’m sure your final question concerns your bathroom itself and towels. They don’t get brown in the process.
Here’s my tan tummy now. Please excuse the photo in bed. It’s 4am and I’m really not sure how I even pulled this post together.
To maintain it, I’ll exfoliate in the shower, spray on L’Oreal Sublime Bronze afterward, and stay moisturized.
If you get girlfriends together and all get a tan at one person’s house, I believe most technicians will discount the rate.
If you live in Houston and you’d like Monica to give you a tan, you can email her here.
