I'm originally from NOLA, but now I live in DC. I've gotten spray tans (both booths and airbrush) for the past 5 years. When I was recently in Louisiana visiting family and friends, I decided I needed a tan. I prefer airbrush over booths, so I did a simple google search and luckily came across Bella Bronze of New Orleans. Everything went perfect! From scheduling to preparation to the actual day of the service. I followed the instructions they sent me prior to the service ""to a T"", and I must say the results were amazing. I'm not usually a fan of the 'bronze' application...I usually like the 'clear' coat. But this was the most beautiful, natural color of bronze/tan I've ever seen. I waited 10 hours to take a shower, and as expected, the bronzer washed off, but I was left with a beautiful tan. I wore undies during the application, so I had a definitive tan line and I could definitely see the difference in color/shade. It lasted a full week. On day 8, I started noticing some splotchy spots on the inside of my elbow and in between/under my boobs. I must admit that I didn't follow the aftercare instructions perfectly (i.e. apply lotion liberally every day). But all in all, SEVEN good days is incredible! I think with daily lotion it would've lasted TEN! Anyway, I'm back home now, and I wish there was a Bella Bronze in DC!
