Your pre-beach pedicure is about to get a lot greener—and no, we’re not talking spring polish colors.

Olive & June, Los Angeles’ fave super chic non-toxic nail salon, is setting up shop on Santa Monica’s Montana Avenue starting March 4. The new arrival joins a pair of sister salons—a two-year-old flagship in Beverly Hills and one in Pasadena (pictured), which opened last summer—but is the first Westside outpost for the brand.

Olive & June Pasadena“We have had so many requests from our clients to open a location west of the 405,” says Olive & June founder Sarah Gibson Tuttle. “So when I found this location on Montana—which has always been one of my favorite streets—everything just felt right. It’s such a cute part of town!”

Gibson Tuttle really couldn’t have picked a better location for wooing wellness types—the new salon resides in what’s quite possibly the healthiest building on Montana, with neighbors including Yogaworks and Beaming superfood café.

We have a feeling she may have been tipped off to the space by Drybar, which is located just a few doors down (as you may recall, the blowout bar shares space with Olive & June in Pasadena).

As for the salon itself, she says, “The space is gorgeous and totally unique, so we made a few changes so that our style fit perfectly in that location. Expect the same light, bright, and open feel, and our signature flower installations and polish wall.”

Gibson Tuttle adds that the newest Olive & June will be home to a few new products and services (although she’s remaining mum on the specifics), and that she’s currently scouting for additional locations in LA—nailing it, on all fronts.
