I was told you can do a manicure after the tan, but not a pedi. The place told me I could do the pedi before, but because of the scrubbing it isn’t a good idea to do it after. Manicure they said wasn;t a problem though, I believe it is the scrubbing that is the issue.

Yes, if you get the pedi after the spray tan it will most likely mess it up. It did for mine a couple years ago. I would get the pedi first, then the next day shower/exfoliate, and then get the spray tan.

Get the mani/pedi and then the airbrush the next day.  You need to wash off the oils/lotions and be completely free of anything (even deodorant) that could alter the tan’s reaction with your skin.

Yes, the pedi before at least.  I made this mistake as well once and had to go get the spray tan touched up on my feet/ankles.  It looked like I had a sock tan haha
