Unlike getting a tan outside, spray tanning doesn't require building a base coat or viewing the sun's endless collection of Oort-cloud-vacation slides. Savor your solar solitude with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of mist or airbrush tanning at Mandalay Mist in Brandon.
At Mandalay Mist, patrons’ skin acquires a bronzed, sun-kissed sheen from modern mist and airbrush tanning equipment completely free of UV rays. In a private spray booth, customers don a shower cap to protect tresses and origami hats, and apply a blending lotion to help create an even tone. The mist tan ($30–$40) then delivers all-over hues from 36 strategically placed nozzles. Tanners can choose from three color options and a variety of multicolored candy sprinkles. Lasting only 60 seconds, the process gilds skin with a glow that can last up to 12 days. In an airbrush tanning session, professional technicians prep bodies with an exfoliating and pH-balancing treatment before spraying skin with a vitamin- and antioxidant-infused tanning solution ($40). Like an under-caffeinated Polaroid picture, color should develop over the ensuing 12 hours.
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.
