It's no secret that there's a bum-rush for the west coast happening right now, especially in the form of New Yorkers seeking more creative pastures. (See: Exhibit A
.) Luckily for us, one of them is Sarah Gibson-Tuttle, the brains behind one of the most-stylish nail salons in Southern California.
"When I first moved to L.A., I had the hardest time finding a place to get my nails done," Gibson-Tuttle told us, who worked in finance before her westward migration. "The nail salons I found were either too indulgent or too rough around the edges." Naturally, she decided to open an utterly stylish nail shop that felt just right
. She named it after her grandmothers, opened up smack-dab in the middle of Beverly Hills, and Olive & June
On the menu? Everything luxe you need (an Instagram-worthy interior
, 350 different shades of fancy polish, and meticulous results) without sky-high prices. Yep, their signature mani is $20. And, luckily, they've been well received. So much so that Olive & June just opened their second location, in Pasadena. To celebrate, we've asked Gibson-Tuttle to share a handful of the most enviable manicures they've created.
Ahead, she sounds off on the latest trends coming out of L.A., from the chicest nail art to the new neutrals to the must-have nail length.
