review: white caviar illuminating pedicure (60 minutes, $120).

as i worked my way through my 20s, my beliefs about which beauty treatments merited shelling out extra cash shifted.  one year i'd invest in facials, the next in waxing.  my current philosophy is to always have my nails and brows professionally done - anytime i touch either has disastrous results.  other treatments - like facials and hair removal - i do mix at-home treatments and spa services.

usually i go to my local nail salon for a quick, but effective, pedicure every 2 weeks.  but every now and then (maybe twice a year) i feel the need to go full-on decadent with my feet.  for weeks i'd been itching for a really special pedicure.  the return of sandal season found my feet so raggedy that only a total makeover would do.

when i heard about the white caviar illuminating pedicure (60 minutes, $120) with la prairie at the ritz carlton on central park south i knew i had to have it - there couldn't be a more special pedicure.  caviar, the ritz carlton and la prairie are all parts of the very definition of elegant and decadent.

a far cry from the cacophony of a local nail shop, the whole spa has a quiet tranquility to it, and pedicure takes place in a private treatment room -- complete with a beautiful reclined chair with a built-in foot bath.  the one hour treatment includes a masque, a peel and a cuticle treatment.  all products used are from la prairie's luxe skincare line.  the treatment is especially meant to address sun or age spots on calves and feet, but my goal of having my rough skin removed and being totally pampered was met.

my nail technician, raynell france, was fantastic.  she scrapped and massaged until my callouses were finally a thing of the past.  i left with feet that are definitely sandal-worthy, and a relaxed mind.

a treatment at the spa gives access to their steam room, sitting lounge with spa water and light snacks and fitness facility.  so be sure to make an afternoon of it.   the white caviar illuminating caviar pedicure is $120.  click here to learn more.
