If there’s one beauty fact we all know to be true, it’s that fake tan might look great, but it can be incredibly messy to apply.
We’ve recently seen a number of ladies experience awkward fake tan fails, where they ended up turning green and looking like Princess Fiona from Shrek.
But one woman recently shared a fake tan blunder that had nothing to do with her appearance – she looked perfectly bronzed, but her sheets paid the price.
In a video on TikTok, a woman named Gemma, who posts under @gemmaramlal, asked for help after applying fake tan at a hotel she was staying at.
The dark brown product went all over the white bedding as she slept, leaving her room looking like a “crime scene”.
She shared a clip of the sheets and her face, looking horrified.
Text in the video said: “When you fake tan at a hotel and it looks like a crime scene… what do I do?”
More than 76,000 people have since watched the footage, with it garnering over 2,000 likes.
A number of people responded to the post, sharing suggestions on how best to handle the situation.
One person wrote: “Pay for the sheets ha.”
Another said: “Oh s**t.”
A third replied: “Once I was in a hotel in Greece and I dyed my hair red, and after that I washed my hair again and the whole towel was red.”
A few people claimed to work for hotels and told Gemma the staff wouldn’t mind.
“I work at Premier Inn and honestly I’ve seen a lot worse, don’t worry about it. Just let a staff member know it is fake tan and not blood,” added a different user.
Gemma later shared an update to her post, saying: “I confessed to housekeeping and they were lovely about it. Can have my bronzed days guilt-free now.”
