Sarah Gibson Tuttle is convinced that manicures should be a treat, not a chore. Since she opened her boutique nail salon Olive & June in 2013, Angelenos’ mani-pedi routines have become that much more pleasurable. “I realized the city needed a new kind of nail salon,” she says. “I wanted to change the manicure experience and make it fun again.” Between the urban décor designed by Brady Cunningham and Kristen Lee Cole of TenOverSix to the custom first-timer client questionnaire (queries include your preferred nail shape and magazines, so the salon has your favorites on file), Gibson Tuttle has created an oasis where clients feel relaxed and well tended to. And following the success of her original Beverly Hills location, the pedicure entrepreneur opened a second Olive & June in Pasadena in 2015 and a Santa Monica outpost this past March.
