Try It Thursday

Hello, all!

So, I did something for the first time yesterday. I got a spray tan.

I’ve used sunless tanning foam, Jergens Natural Glow®, and (gasp) even used the tanning beds. But, I’ve never had a spray tan. And, since we were going on vacation (and I wanted to look nice in the pictures) I wanted to have a glow. So I hightailed over to the salon.

It actually went okay; a lot less awkward than I thought it would be and not at all smelly. However, I did not pick the best day to make my appointment. You see, as soon as I left, it started raining. Which meant I got wet. Which left me with spots on my arms and legs. Sigh. 

Because of the spots, I tried to rub in the tan to get it to blend. And after, I looked at my hands and saw that my fingertips were stained with spray tan. Bah.

Its like I ate too many Cheetos or something.

I Googled: “How to get spray tan off my hands.”

I tried EVERYTHING:

~I scrubbed my fingers with a Magic Eraser®

~I used a nail brush and makeup remover

~I put hydrogen peroxide on a cotton ball and rubbed my fingers

~I soaked them in lemon juice

~And I also used nail polish remover

 

When I was done, this is what I was left with:

The only difference is the fact that this picture is more blurry.

Sigh. 

I guess I’ll have to try the only option I hadn’t considered: patience.

Every website I read said that the tan will fade and eventually go away. I just have to wait. In the meantime, I have to keep my hands in my pocket.
