The presenter shared a peek into her Christmas beauty regime on Instagram as she got a festive red pedicure – but fans were quick to criticise the video.
"Red Christmas toes!! Nothing like a festive pedicure & relaxing foot massage to pick me up.....thanks Naomi @thelittleparlour #thelittleparlour #pedicure #christmas," Ruth captioned the boomerang.
It showed her sitting in an armchair waving to the camera as the beautician massaged her foot – but it was the barely-visible, clear visor covering both Ruth and Naomi's face that caught everyone's attention.

One follower wrote: "No mask Ruth think of your therapist and her family," and another added: "No face masks?"
Ruth pointed out on several occasions that they were, in fact, both wearing face coverings. "We both have visors on," she responded.
Many of her fans also rushed to defend the 60-year-old. "They are not near each other. They have visors on. So stop being so unnecessary opinionated. If you haven't anything nice to say. Say nothing at all. Looking great Ruth!" one remarked.
Referring to the reflection caused by the visors when the pair moved their heads, a second similarly commented: "People clearly need to go to Specsavers, leave Ruth alone."
With Boris Johnson announcing new coronavirus restrictions on Saturday night, we're jealous we won't have immaculate red nails like Ruth over the Christmas period!
