As much as I promise myself time and time again that I am going to learn to paint my own nails (aka learn to be patient), I keep finding myself in a pedicure chair with a cappuccino in one hand and the latest glossy magazine in another. There is something about a perfectly painted manicure and pedicure that makes me feel put together as I tackle my work week. As much as I love getting my nails done in my home city of Halifax, lately I have only been able to squeeze in the time when traveling.
Recently, I had the pleasure of enjoying a manicure and pedicure at the adorable and very popular Olive & June in Beverly Hills. This well known nail salon is visited regularly by Victoria Beckham and Kendall Jenner and is Instagramed on the daily by some of the most well known influencers. Olive & June have since opened two other locations, including one in Santa Monica and another in Pasadena. I pray that Halifax is next on the expansion list….a girl can dream, right?
While visiting Los Angeles, I also had the opportunity to meet Sarah Gibson Tuttle, Founder and CEO of Olive & June. Sarah shared with me her story of leaving her corporate job in New York to relocating and opening her dream nail salon in Los Angeles. After listening to her story and enjoying her infectious sense of humour…..I left our conversation feeling more inspired.
If you are visiting the Los Angeles area, I highly recommend visiting one of the three (…or all) locations below. Your service will not disappoint!
