For months now, it's been fifty shades of pale for Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, who had to forgo the tanning light after becoming pregnant with her first child.
Now, the wait is finally over. Snooki has her bronze mettle back!
"Omg," Tweets the pint-sized Jersey Shore star, 24, who gave birth to son Lorenzo on Aug. 26, "just went tanning since like a year ago."
She also gives a hashtag shout-out to her own line of tanning lotion.
It's a well-earned treat for the reality star who now appears in the MTV spin-off Snooki & JWOWW – she endured more than 24 hours of labor.
