Mandarin Oriental Paris to Host Louboutin Pop-Up Nail Bar

By Paul Joseph

Christian Louboutin may be best known for their eye-catching bags and footwear, but the iconic French brand is using one of Paris’s most prestigious hotels to showcase its nail-decorating talents.

The Mandarin Oriental hotel is all set to host the city’s one and only Christian Louboutin pop up nail bar from for just three exclusive weeks this summer.

While having their nails done, customers will be able to sip cocktails inspired by the colours and names of Louboutin’s newest nail polishes.

The hotel's bartenders have crafted three new cocktails for the occasion: the orange L’Escatin made with carrot juice, pineapple, peach syrup and ginger; the pink Bengali made with vodka, lemon and raspberry puree; and the blue Baraboum made with curacao, vodka, Saint Germain elderflower liqueur and champagne.

The 30-minute manicures are offered in the discreet atmosphere of a lobby alcove at the hotel and guests have 10 shades from CL’s Pop collection to choose from.

The indulgent manicures are priced at €45 and are available at allocated times throughout the week, including weekends.

Christian Louboutin set up his own eponymous company in 1991. Mainly renowned for its women’s shoe designs, it has grown to become one of the world’s most legendary fashion labels.
