You know, here at MTV Style we certainly like to draw our own pop-culture fashion comparisons (see: Jared Leto channeling Dragon Ball Z or
Lady Gaga Jo Calderone seriously copping Karate Kid's steez), but when a celeb calls out the PERFECT semblance right from the get-go, we can't help but give them props. Today, our girl Snooki Instagrammed tons of pics from her Supre Tan photo shoot (yes, she's still promoting her bedazzled, self-titled tanning lotion) where she sported legit head-to-toe neon. In one particular photo, though, her caption read, "Super hero Bratz doll ready to frolic," and suddenly, we were all, "OMG. She really does look like a Bratz doll!" Like, guys, look at her. LOOK. She's wearing a bright purple and pink leopard bra under a neon green tank paired with hot pink running shorts and KILLER sky-high neon and white platform sneakers. (Seriously though, where can we get those?)
Pauly D applies some aloe.
It's no secret that the entire cast of Jersey Shore loves to tan their faces off, but never did we think it would actually happen. Sun-starved from their stint in Italy, Pauly D attempts to "shock [his] system" by tanning at the highest setting for the longest time. It seems like a logical plan, except, without a base tan, anyone is infinitely more likely to burn. Just one bad burn can cause serious long-term damage to the skin, and low and behold, one bad burn is precisely what he got. As is customary after such an affliction, the skin on his face started to peel. Ever grooming-conscious, the Jersey DJ took immediate action against his flaking face and exfoliated the dead damaged skin away. He MIGHT have been okay if he left it at that, took a break from tanning, and liberally applied a good deep moisturizing lotion every few hours. But no. He had to keep at it, letting the fresh layer of skin he just revealed sizzle in harmful UV rays, burning his OG burn. OUCH, Pauly literally tanned his face OFF.

Snooki's been BUSY, y'all. She's launched so many fashion and beauty collections by now that we've started a list just to keep track: 1.) Slippers 2.) Flip-flops 3.) Sunglasses 4.) Perfume and now 5.) Indoor tanning lotion. WHEW! This isn't even counting her work as an author for New York Times bestseller It's A Shore Thing and her book Guidette Problems that's on the way! We're tired just THINKING about it, but we know that nothing can stop our meatball from putting her Jersey Shore spin on everyyyything. Most recently, Snooki was spotted in Nashville promoting her new latest and greatest creation—indoor tanning supplies! Snooks teamed up with the indoor tanning experts at Supre Tan to create products that'll make you the ultimate bronze beauty.
JWOWW on Aug. 27.

You may think JWOWW gets her beautiful, glowing, bronzed skin from endless hours spent in the sun, but the Jersey Shore star says it's all from her Daily Beauty Maintenance kit—a part of her JWOWW skin-care line that launched last week. Jenni's line includes three "complexion-perfectors:" the JWOWW Facial Cleanser with Daily Exfoliants, JWOWW Eye Therapy Cream Moisturizer, and JWOWW Color Enhancing Moisturizer. The products work to cleanse and hydrate skin, reduce under-eye puffiness, and prolong the self-tanner application (obvs!). "I’m all about a sexy, natural glow," Ms. Farley says. "These products keep my skin looking healthy, no matter how hard I've been partying." Heyyy-ooo! The cool part, though, is that JWOWW put her graphic design training to use and created the logo and packaging herself. Um, what CAN'T this girl do? Let's peep some of her products, which hit stores Sept. 25, below!

According to TMZ (What? Isn't that where you get all YOUR news-worthiest news?) our Jersey Shore pal Pauly D is slated to get serious about the "T" in "GTL"—he's launching his own line of tanning products with Devoted Creations Inc. The line will feature tanning lotions and other sunless tanning products so EVERYONE can get that dark Seaside Heights glow. The collection will be sold in high-end salons throughout the world, so you can conveniently snatch up a bottle when you're getting your hair did.

In the latest news about tanning legislation (Congress slapped a tax on tanning beds nationwide earlier this summer as part of the new healthcare bill), the New York Post just did a sneaky undercover investigative piece showing that most tanning salons in New York City don't obey laws requiring them to card their young customers. See, the rules are kinda simple ... Read More...
