So, The Romanian's son gets married on the day after tomorrow. SHE has been at the Corniche Club daily for the past 10 days or so working on her tan. Pasty-white me? Not so much. I don't like to sit out in the sun. I do tan-in-a-can.
It has been a while since I've had it done in Kuwait. I was still thinking that Strands had the same kind of wax-on/wax-off treatment (similar to having a massage, you get neked, lie on a table and a girl exfoliates your skin with a scrub (stop it, pervs!). Then, you go shower and come back to have the color applied. It was like getting a massage and a scrub for one price.
I found out that they do spray tan. So, I'm thinkin' it is the kind that I had in the States; similar to a car wash where you stand in a booth and get sprayed up and down by a machine and then blow-dried. (Yuh huh - they do too!).
I was a little disturbed when I saw this:
It looks like something that Toddlers and Tiaras do to the little'uns before their big pageants (only not in the back yard). I thought, 'No, no, no!' C'est impossible! But it turned out much better than I thought. I think Honey Boo Boo gets air-brushed, so why not me? It is a lot more thorough than a spray-tan machine and not harmful like a tanning bed. I did a lot of lifting of arms and legs to get the most coverage, but that's exactly what I wanted.
So, now I'm darker than The Romanian. HA! And for less work.
Now people at work are going to think I'm faking being sick. I strategically scheduled the appointment on a Sunday evening so they would see me white one day and dark the next; miraculously over night. Maybe they'll think that I'm having liver problems... It would actually make sense to those who know me really well.... Did somebody say, "Tequila shots!"??
.... My God my teeth look white!
You have to update the morning after you wash all the spray tan tonic off. That is the true determining factor if the spray tan is good or not.
The only problem area I have is around my fingers (which is normal - you can scrub most of that off). No streaks because technician-lady "buffed" me all over (stop it, pervs!).
Overall - great fake tan.
