What a Mess!!!

As I mentioned briefly last week, I thought it would be a really good idea to use some fake tan on my lily-white legs - just in case I decided to get them out at the weekend.
What a disaster! The spray on, non rub, instant dry, non streaky stuff made my legs look patchy, streaky and slightly orange! Not the best look for shorts! So, I ended up in long trousers all weekend in the 25 degree heat!

I have a feeling that the Vintage Photo Distress Ink would have done a much better job - especially when using the blending tool - at least my legs would then match my fingers!!
I have sent the attached photo to Tim to enter his "how do you distress" competition to suggest this idea - I wonder if the next ink will be called "Fake Tan"?


  1. hahaha I have only used fake tan once, years ago with the same result. If I could bear to strip off in front of some skinny schooleaver with more bling than a rapper then i would go for a spray tan.....instead i shall just stay lily white, aftr all it has taken me 40 years to cultivate this death warmed up look!

  2. LOL at idea of using vintage photo for your fake tan!!!!!!!!

  3. lol fake tan is just too much high maintenance. Lily white is the way to go.

  4. lol i bet he loves it!!! ;0)

  5. I'll be keeping my eye on the new Autumn CHA products! *Ü* TFS. ~Glen~

  6. fake tan is awful, hate the stuff, it always does that to me too :)
    Tim could do a whole fake tan range, from a nice light tan through to lobster red & tango orange lol:)
