A beauty salon in Southern California is offering a $25,000 manicure package that includes premium champagne, French-imported pastries, spa treatments, 20 GIA-graded diamonds and the expert assistance of a personal jeweler.
Catering to the ritzy clientele of Irvine and Newport Beach, Calif., Images Luxury Nail Lounge recently introduced three bling-tastic offerings ranging in price from $500 to $25,000.
The most luxurious of the packages is called “Glitz & Glamicure.” For a service fee of $10,000 to $25,000, the salon will close its doors to the pubic and lavish the customer with a long list of elite services. Each client will sip premium champagne and eat French-imported pastries while consulting with a personal jeweler in the selection of 20 GIA-graded diamonds that will be used in the manicure design.
In additional to the diamond-adorned manicure, the “Glitz & Glamicure” package comes with an hour-long message, rejuvenating luxury facial and the Images Celebrity Makeover, which includes eyelash extensions and a waxing/threading service.
General manager Tony Nguyen told the Orange County Register that six clients have already earned “bragging rights” for being the first to indulge in the “Glitz & Glamicure” package.
"We have clients that request services like this, so when we decided to do a luxurious menu, we talked with them about all the things they would want together," Nguyen told refinery29.com. "I can't tell you their names, but there are women in Newport and Irvine that want to really splurge once in a while."
The spa’s second-tier package, the Gold Rush Manicure by Models Own, carries a price tag ranging from $2,500 to $10,000 and takes place in a private suite. A-listers will bask in gilded luxury as their nails are applied with Models Own Gold Rush lacquer, said to be the second-most-expensive nail polish in the world at $130,000 per bottle. The effect, according to Bornrich.com, are nails that “shine like diamonds on a platter of gold.” The application of 24-karat gold flakes takes this manicure to the next level.
The Gold Rush Manicure includes champagne, facial, lash extensions and threading.
The third-tier package, ranging from $500 and $2,500, is the Haute Couture Manicure, which includes diamond nail art (up to 20 diamonds), mineral bath, facial, massage and polish.
