If using for Stage and Competition Tanning

BASE COAT – Apply the night before competition. For best results leave on overnight and add SunFX Showdown Ultra Dark Finish over the top on day of competition. Alternatively apply one coat two days before competition and shower after 8 hours or sleep in it. Apply a second coat the night before the competition and then apply SunFX Showdown Ultra Dark Finish on the day of competition.

FINISH COAT (DHA Free) – Best applied on the morning or day of the competition. Will create a very dark bronzing coat. Best applied over top of SunFX Showdown Ultra-Dark Base. Avoid rubbing or wiping once the solution has been applied. If you are using oil, we highly recommend a fine mist with no rubbing to avoid the tan running. SunFX Showdown Ultra-dark Finish can be applied with a sponge. Dab on lightly and build up a dark color. Use a sponge to reapply on areas where rub-off has occurred. Blend in carefully. Color will dry to match original tan application.


  • ShowDown Dark Base can be treated as an Ultra Dark Rapid Solution for everyday clients wanting that extra hit of color. Bronzer is inline with Caribbean Chocolat
  • Clean and prep skin prior to spraying.
  • Offer client accessories such as hair net, g-string & nasal filters.
  • Make sure to use SunFX Sticky Feet to protect the soles of the feet from discoloration.
  • To maximize the clients experience use SunFX scent drops & after spraying a quick dusting of our gorgeous Finishing Powder
  • SunFX Solutions don’t require Barrier Creams. Simply wipe nail beds and palms post spray.

  1. Trisha

    I use this as a competition base. Two good coats and you get a great base coat to then apply a dark finish on the day of competition . My clients like that the base doesnt leave them looking horribly orange and over dark after the competition.

  2. Selina

    Great color and wears well. Im pretty dark naturally and wanted something to pull my color together and take me a little darker. This was perfect. I only need a one coat to gt a good result.

  3. Monique

    I wanted something a little darker than the Caribbean Rapid Dark Summer for my clients. This was what the Rep recommended and its been the best. I just adjust the rinse time I tell them depending on their skin and color required.

  4. Kelli- Anne

    I’m a bikini model and this is just right. I don’t want to be left looking ridiculous after the show. With this it looks great under lights and then I can do a very light loofah and I have a great tan for the week after.

  5. Steve

    If you’re looking for a solid color base for a competition to then apply your day of x dark temp color this is great. I can then wash after the comp and have a decent color until it wears off. No awful heavy color.
