Nail & Beauty Boutique - Natural Nail Care & Airbrush Tanning

Airbrush Tanning

At Nail & Beauty Boutique you can expect a beautiful tan customized to your unique skin type. 
We use a  product that is used and loved across the country, But is hand made right here in Bellingham Wa.  I have personally trained with this company to learn how to properly apply the products and achieve the best tanning results.  
Our solution is specially formulated to enrich the skins moisture leaving it hydrated and nourished for the best possible tan. Fortified with aloe and vitamins, this proprietary solution is fueled with triple bronzers for the deepest, darkest most natural tan possible. 
Our tanning solutions leave our clients with no blotchiness, no orange coloring and no harmful ingredients.  Giving each client a flawless light golden sun kiss, a beautiful cocoa brown or a deep rich bronze and everthing in between depending on what you desire. 

Your tan will last approximately 7 to 10 days depending on your skins natural exfoliation rate and how moisturized you keep your skin. 

When you arrive to your airbrush spray tan appointment you will be asked to fill out a short intake form that will go over allergies or other health conditions that may be affected by an airbrush tan. The active ingredient in sunless tanning solutions is DHA (Dihydroxyacetone). If you think you may have sensitivities to this, please ask for a patch test and wait 24 hours before you have a full body tan applied. A list of solution ingredients is available if needed. 

before your session we will go over how to prepare for your tanning session and what to expect during and after. This will include:

Undressing to your comfort level. Keep in mind whatever you leave on will produce tan lines. 
*Men are required to wear bottoms of their choice.
*Women under 18 may not tan nude. 
Disposable undergarments are NOT provided.
The tanning solution does not stain most materials but can stain Lycra and spandex so tanning with dark undergarments is recommended to be safe. 

You will wear a hair cap provided to protect your hair.
your tech will advice how to apply barrier cream to nails, hands, feet and dry areas for the best results.
Nose protection is available upon request.

To achieve the best longest lasting tan possible 
please follow these steps 24 hours before your appointment:

*Exfoliate your entire body thoroughly. This will remove dead skin and provide a new, smooth surface for your tan and lengthens the life of your tan. 

*Shave or wax and moisturize your entire body thoroughly.

*Manicures and Pedicures should be done the day before your tan.

*The Day of  your Spray Tan Appointment and before you arrive

*Stay away from Dove products or soaps with moisturizes and oils in them. These soaps leave a film that can lead to a blotchy tan. 
*Remove all makeup, moisturizer, perfume and deodorant. Skin should be clean and dry with no soap or product residues. 
*Bring dark loose fitting clothing to wear after your spray tan and flip flops.
No tight clothing or shoes, no jeans, boots or yoga pants. 

After your spray tan appointment

*Wait at least 8 hours before showing, swimming or working out (sweating).
It is normal to see a little color wash off in your first shower. This is only the bronzer that is used as a color guide. Your spray tan itself will not wash away once it has developed. 
*Pat do not rub your skin dry after a shower or swimming.
*Avoid Long hot showers and baths as these will speed up the exfoliation process and dry out your skin. 
*Do not shave your legs for at least 12 hours. Use a fresh razor when you do.
*Moisturize on a daily basis. 
*On the fourth to fifth day gently exfoliate your skin with a fine polishing product to encourage even fading. Do not use a harsh scrub or exfoliating product at this time. 
*Stay away from dove products and products containing heavy fragrance and alcohol.
