Nails and spray tan

by Jessica

I went for a spray tan after following all the tips and advice on plenty of sites , but after about a week or so i realised it makes you toe nails orange or yellow , this is because the DHA seeps in to the nail there for staining and making it quite unplesent to look at your feet , so if you getting your sandles out for the summer i reccomend you put a clear nail varnish or whatever colour you wish to put on which will act like a barrier .

protect nails and toenails from UV and spray solutions
by: carrie

These have been around for years and mainly used in UV beds. They definitely protect 100% from yellowing in those. The company needs to do a better job letting people know they are awesome for spray tanning. The ones for the toes are great for the spray booth because the spray jets are so close to the feet and there is no control over the spray.
I hate worrying about the under side of my fingernail when spray taning too. The nail caps completely cover the toenail and fingernail. Hope this helps

how to maintain toenails while spray tanning
by: Carrie

This is a repeat, unfortunately I don't see this helpful hint posted anywhere on the site. Buy a pair of nailsavers and toesavers from the company. They are a reusable nail cap that can be washed and reused forever.You can find them on line at They are great because they completely cover the fingernail and toenail, nails and cuticles WILL stay pristine. I love this site, I hope they will keep this posted for readers.
Either use the sticky feet or the masking tape suggestion on the feet and you will love the result.
The underside of the fingernail will stay fresh looking as well. Hope this helps

Boshena's comment: That is funny, because I have not come accross any similar post before, otherwise I would have posted it for sure. Your submission must have gone into space somewhere :-)

I am glad that somebody has finally found a solution to yellow nails.
