When The Ritz London decides to launch a new product, they aim high. Case in point: To invent their exclusive manicure, the luxury hotel teamed up with none other than Jeff Pink, creator of the French Manicure and founder of the famous Orly Professional Nail Care Range, to design it. Called simply The Ritz Manicure, this lavish 75-minute treatment is The Ritz Salon's major launch for 2011.
Designed to deeply condition and moisturize hands, The Ritz Manicure begins with a fragrant hand soak, followed by an olive grain exfoliation and massage, then a skin-softening wrap which seals in oils. Then Anna Gardiner, a favorite manicurist of the glitterati, applies two flashes of signature Ritz gold lacquer, positioned to complement the natural nail. The final look is elegant and bold at the same time. The Ritz Manicure is priced at GBP 75 and The Ritz gold lacquer, exclusive to the hotel, costs GBP 11.95.
