Côte opens a 'quick Côte' shop on 13th Street

Côte, "a luxurious nail care destination," opened its first NYC location last week on 13th Street between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue.

Here's more about what to expect: "Understanding the Manhattan woman's busy lifestyle, we'll be offering 'quick côtes' ($20) as our signature service (it’s a polish change, but with a little extra love) at our new york location."

Here's more about the L.A.-based founders:

côte founders mary lennon and leah yari created côte to provide a safe, transparent, quality product and an elegant nail care experience that could be shared with their families and friends without worry. they set out to take the “toxins” out of the nail treatment experience; from the shop environment, to the technician / guest interaction, to the actual products themselves. with that in mind, all of côte's polishes are created free of the major toxins and allergens that are often associated with nail polish: formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, camphor, formaldehyde resin, TPHP, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, parabens and gluten.

The space was previously an office for Mirador Real Estate.

Gluten-free nail polish. Now I've heard it all.

So sad to see Clayworks forced out while the neighborhood gains another nail salon. Nothing against a non-toxic option, but it's so indicative of the blandness the EV has become.

Non-toxic nail polish has been a thing for years; Priti™ nail polish has been around for several years, and they also promote themselves as vegan.

I know, there's the "pampering" thing about a nail salon, but actually Priti™ was featured at a [now-defunct] nail salon on East 1st street at least ten years ago.
