I’ve gotten traditional booth spray tans twice before and liked them, although I looked a bit orange in pictures. I found a Groupon for a custom airbrush tan that was the same price as the booth, so I figured I’d try it.
I’m going to Vegas for my 21st in about 2 weeks and want to look awesomely tan. The package included 2 tanning sessions; would it be best to use 1 before leaving, or should I use them both before leaving? What would give me the “best” tan? How many days before I leave should I get tanned?

@Meglin: I’ve never gotten a custom airbrush. When I used to go to the spray tan booth I would go every 4-7 days during the summer. I think it looks best with more than one (light) application since the color evens out.
I bet the person who does it can give you much better advice!

I don’t like them really dark, so I wouldn’t double up on them, personally.
I’d do it with enough time to get in one shower before you go (so… the day before, probably, and then shower in the morning). It’ll be super fresh at the beginning and then fade just a bit by the end of your trip.

Thank you both for your input, ladies! I’m just not sure how “dark” I’ll look from this custom airbrush since I’ve never gotten one done; I’ve read that it just makes some people look ‘glowey’. I definitely want to be tan for this trip!
