Hey girls I am resurrecting this thread because I have been searching for the answer to my question and I found part of it in this thread but wanted to ask another. So I see that it is suggested to do a trial run with the tanning product but when is this typically done? A couple of weeks before? A month before? And will testing it in just a small area give me a good enough idea of how it will turn out? Do I need to do several coats like I would be doing for the comp? Thanks for the advice/suggestions already given in all the threads I have been reading. You girls have been so helpful!
