The reality star, Kim Kardashian is up to her eye with wedding preparations, as she and her husband-to-be Kanye West are about to get married in Italy on Saturday.
The mom-of-one already has a 15-carate diamond ring of the finger, designed by her favorite jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, and it seems she wants herself to shine like a diamond.
The Heat magazine insider revealed that Kim plans to cover her curves with the world’s most expensive spray tan, which combines diamond dust with traditional aerosol tanning dye for a one-of-a-kind glow.
The special diamond treatment is produced by a U.K. self-tanning brand and costs about $320 for a bottle, while some salons charge $320 only for one tanning session.
“The Diamond Tan is without a doubt THE most luxurious tan possible – when performed, I quite literally am spraying my clients with diamond dust!” says St. Tropez tanning expert Jules Heptonstall.
Heptonstall explains: “After the St. Tropez classic spray tan has developed and the skin is gorgeous and golden, I use St. Tropez Diamond Dust and lightly spray and buff onto the shoulders, the arms, the chest and the back to give an all-over luminosity and glisten. It’s pure luxe.”
It’s so posh that it’s not even on sale for mere mortals. Those, who want some sparkle on their bodies have to get on a waitlist to book the exclusive service at Euphoria Spa in Tribeca, the only place in the city to feature the St. Tropez diamond dust spray tan, which charges $250 for the off-the-menu VIP treatment that isn’t listed on their website.
Spa owner Kristen Haines says that this kind of tanning treatment is too expensive to bring into the States, and the only way is through the salons. She says the spa only gets request for the precious polish once every couple of months from the select customers who are in-the-know.
“The Diamond Tan is reserved for our super VIP clients that request it because it is very expensive. St. Tropez only sends it to select spas worldwide.”
Haines says: “The Diamond Tan is great for black tie occasions and a lot of brides will ask for it. What’s so special about the tan is the diamond particles reflect light flashes, so it makes skin look extra luminous and glowing for red carpet and photography moments – it’s paparazzi approved!”
News spreads fast, and as everyone knew that Kim gets diamond tan, they all want to keep with the Kardashian, calling the salon begging for the bedazzled bronzer, reports the NY Daily News.
“Oh geez – everyone is calling about that,” said a woman answering calls at Euphoria Spa, who fielded three calls before the Daily News rang in on Friday – a spike from the one call every few months they are accustomed to. “Everyone is just finding out about this because of Kim Kardashian. The only problem is, we don’t have that specific formula here. Hopefully they’ll put a rush order on it.”
