This is yet another page from the imaginary book of "America is not broke," 24-karat manicures for the Grammy Awards.
It is no jaw-dropping revelation that Grammy gift bags always feature a ridiculous amount of ridiculously expensive swag, but this year's 24-karat nail polish may just be one of the most senselessly lavish items offered.
According to Racked:
RCM, the first at-home gel manicure company, has created a special polish called Amor 24, and they'll be camping out in the Grammy gifting lounge (a place where celebrities get free stuff in exchange for standing around and getting their picture taken with swag) to dole out their gold manis.
Some other lavish 24-karat gold services that are being offered to prep celebs for their night on the Grammys red carpet? A 24-karat gold facial, of course.
Suddenly Simmer Spa offers the following 24-karat beauty services:
We use products infused with tiny particles of gold so clients can take advantage of gold’s natural anti-bacterial and antioxidant qualities. Our skin experts actually use a gold leaf mask all over the face, which will help revitalize and…get this…actually give you a golden glow.
The one-hour facial is worth its weight in gold: $250.
Guess when it comes to the Grammys all that glitters is indeed gold. Looks like everyone will be going home with a little gold on their hands ... and face. 1 percent, you have managed to do it again.
