Like us, Sarah Gibson Tuttle is obsessed with a good mani / pedi. So she set out to create the glowiest nail salon of all, Olive & June, named after her great-grandma and grandma, the Gibson women who taught her the importance of having high standards and a big heart.
Before opening the Beverly Hills Olive & June flagship, Sarah was a New Yorker through and through. But eventually, L.A. with its blue skies and laid-back ways, wooed her out west.
But when it came to getting a manicure, the prospects were less than sunny. She searched high and low, but in the end it seemed like all the options were either too fancy-pants or too divey. Was a solid paint job and a little pampering in a relaxing and aesthetically pleasing environment so much to ask? So Sarah decided to create exactly what she was looking for: the glowy as ever nail salon she could never find.
Sarah’s just one of those girls that’s in the glow. For being an LA transplant, she knows all the top glow spots and some (impressive) insider tips too! We love the fact that she’s spreading even more glow in LA through her beautiful creation Olive & June, and we can’t wait for it to take over the nail world.

WHAT IS YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE? (PRODUCTS, FACIALS, ETC.) I recently got a facial w Shani Darden and loved it. She understands skin so well. She also refused to sell me products until I tried all the samples she gave me, which was something I have never experienced. So I’m figuring out my routine right now but I’m totally starting to use retinol. Such a great preventative against aging and acne.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE NATURAL MAKEUP/ BEAUTY PRODUCTS? Odacite’s spa line (which we feature in the Margot Mani/Pedi at O&J) – both the scrub and the lotion are divine. Tata Harper oils are such a wonderful indulgence. Earth Tu Face’s skinstick is the best organic chapstick.

WHAT MAKES YOU GLOW? My husband, our families, our amazing friends. When women love their experience at Olive & June. Seeing people smile and laugh. I love life and am so grateful for it.
