South Beach is known for its signature art-deco designs, pristine beaches, and energetic nightlife. Taking a cue from that dynamic locale, the staff members of South Beach Tanning Company have decorated their various locations in the spirit of South Beach and pride themselves on their upbeat, lounge-like vibe. Inside each salon, cheery lighting and bright purple, blue, and red walls augment the high-quality equipment and shelves of handpicked lotions, and high ceilings stop newly acquired tans from floating off just-bronzed bodies.
There's more than one way to get bronzed at Mandalay Mist, and none of them involve the sun's rays. Mist tanning booths take just 60 seconds to coat the body in a choice of three different darkness levels. Custom airbrush tans go beyond a spray-down from a professional technician, incorporating an exfoliation and skin-balancing treatment as well. Coats of fresh nail polish set off golden skin tones, and the scented lotions used in these mani-pedis make birthday suits smell as tasty as they look.
