Ever had a fake tan disaster? It’s still NOT as terrible as this woman’s…


If you're white and Irish then you've probably had a fake tan disaster at some stage.

Desperate to emulate our sun-kissed Mediterranean counterparts, a load of us have sadly ended up orange of skin and brown of palm.

It's a disaster that even the rich and beautiful (we're looking at you, Mariah) know all about.

However, suffice to say that it is unlikely you’ve ever been experienced anything as remotely disastrous as one Imogen Silversides.

The Yorkshire native spotted a tutorial online which praised the virtues of using a spongy paint roller to apply an even layer of sun-kissed tan.

She tried the technique out for herself – though sadly the results were not quite as she envisioned.

Who ever the girl was that recommend to apply fake tan with a paint roller is one lying fuck. Don't think I'll be at work Friday

Ending up a shockingly deep mahogany colour, she subsequently took to her Facebook page to share an eye-catching snap.

“Whoever the girl was that recommend to apply fake tan with a paint roller is one lying f***,” Imogen wrote. “Don't think I'll be at work Friday.”

“U look fantastic girl just one thing u should be painting walls with these not urself,” joked one commentator.

“Me the other week thank god that sh** came off,” said another. A third quipped: “I've had darker tan.”

The post has now gone viral, notching up 40,000 reactions and some 5,000 shares.
