Hot To Trot In Nottingham

Wah! Hard to believe but we’re half way through the Strictly Come Dancing Tour 2017 already. Obviously the Sienna X Tan Game is still strong with all the celebs and dancers loving their tent time with me and our award winning mists.

Nottingham kicked off with the lovely Chloe Hewitt, Luba Mushtuk, AJ Pritchard, Kevin Clifton, Jake Leigh, Hayley and Charlie Bruce all popping in to see me on route to a night out on the town. They love that the mist is so natural, even when wearing the guide colour they can go out and about on their days off confident they look amazing.

Many of the girls like to wear Sienna’s paper pants while having their tans, but don’t like the lines on the side of their hips they leave – especially as some of the Strictly costumes are cutaway to show off their curves as they cha cha under the glitterballs. To make sure their tan is flawless I like to do a little extra tweak for them to ditch these little lines. After spraying, I get the ladies to hold the sides of the pants outwards and then directly spray extra mist into one of Sienna X’s Luxury Velvet Mitt and then press it over the lines. You buff very slightly to blend in but not so much as to disturb the tan you’ve already beautifully spritzed on. Pat again and then your tan fan can carefully pop the pants back down. The Strictly favourites love it.

Talking of Strictly favourites, Danny Mac never misses a tan tent session so nipped in for a full on bronzed finished by me before sneaking back to his room for a Deliveroo and movie kind of chilled out Monday night.

The lovely Karen Hardy, who is guest judging alongside Len Goodman and Craig Revel Horwood ¬†for the Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour 2017, also came to see me for a Sienna X tan. ‚ÄòI haven’t had a tan in over ten years,’ she revealed to me as we discussed shade selection in my tanning suite. We opted for a strong 16% to play up to her olive skin tones and she loved it. ‚ÄòIt’s amazing I just feel all confident and glowy,’ she said afterwards. ‚ÄòIt’s more than just a tan out on the dancefloor.’

And with that is was time to clean up my tan tent, pack away the pants and leave the tanning room as if nothing glowy had ever gone on in Nottingham – it’s important to be super professional and never leave a trail of where you have been. Well that is of course until this week’s Notts audience get to see all the tanning ace-ness live on the dance floor.

See you in Leeds on Thursday – follow on @SiennaXOffical on Instagram stories from 10pm for all the late night tanning antics!
