So tomorrow afternoon I''m having my B-pics taken. I''m ghostly pale in the winter, so yesterday I went and had a spray tan done. The woman and I were both so careful about keeping it off my palms, but a few places are orange today. Is there some secret trick to getting it off? I''ve tried lemon juice and scrubbing with soap and my kitchen scrubby (the latter worked better than the first). Also, do you think Macy''s would have fishnet thigh-highs? I''m looking for small netting in black and we don''t have a Victoria''s Secret or Frederick''s around here...

Hey hudson- As a wedding planner I see this problem ALL the time!
Nail polish remover works. Also try a whitening toothpaste or one with baking soda, and scrub your hands with a toothbrush (obviously, dont use it again afterwards!
)

Also, as a LAST resort if the firs two options dont work, you can take a washcloth with bleach and water a scrub your hands. Only problem is it will burn/irritate your skin, so make sure you wash your hands with soap immediately following.

Hope that helps!

I was going to say nail polish remover also.

Macy''s may. I''ve gotten fishnets from Bloomingdales but they were not thigh highs.

Ohh SNAP!! I just had this little tip oy my 100-day countdown calendar, but I''m not sure what I did with the sheet...

It has to do with sugar though. Ohh, I remember (I think)... lotion and sugar. Mix them, then rub them on your skin, wash off with warm water, and it will even it out.

I second all of these suggestions. I''ve also had luck using a facial scrub win benzoyl peroxide in it (the kind you use for acne) and also facial astringent.

ooohweeee. I so wish we could see those pics HH!
Of your b-session, not your orange hands. Try doing the benzoyl peroxide scrub. My friend spray tans all the time and she said that sometimes works (I asked her for ya
)

Yes, but unfortunately there isn''t time (pics are tomorrow). I found some cute thigh-highs (just plain with lace tops) and sexy seamed hose at Macy''s and then found the fishnet thigh highs at H&M.

I''m doing a big mix of pictures, so I''m sure there will be plenty that are appropriate for PS...The photog also has a blog site and often posts recent pics there (with the person''s permission of course) so I could always refer you all there. Weee! I''m so excited! I''m off to have my brows threaded at 4:15!

So I just had my brows threaded...wow....the woman was fantastic! I''ve always had them waxed but a friend recommended her to me. It was quick and almost painless! Waaay less painful than waxing and I''m not red either!

Are you seious?!?!?!?! In Dubai/India no one waxes eyebrows (people haven't even heard of it, they look at me like I'm crazy when I ask if they can wax instead!!), it's always threading and I HATE it! It's so painful!! I so much more prefer getting my brows waxed, but dont have much of a choice when i'm visiting family.

That said, it does last longer when you thread than wax. Tooooo much pain for me to do it regularly though!

What about trying vinegar which is a weak solution of acetic acid. That might shift it?

Mr. Clean magic eraser, I swear there is nothing it won''t clean. I had the same issue around my wedding last year- this was the quickest and easier solution.

All I can say is.... Phew!

When I saw the title of the thread, I thought you were going express some indignation about the decor at your venue (!)...

Or worse, about decor that you were hoping we could help you find for your wedding!


So glad I was wrong!


I hope you're able to shed those orange palms before the photo shoot!
