How did you meet?
Nadine and Adair: We met through mutual friends almost a decade ago. We instantly hit it off and were friends for years before starting tenoverten.
What inspired you to start your own business?
Nadine: We were inspired to start tenoverten because we would often meet to have our nails done after work and the experience always left us wanting more. We would talk about all of the little things we could improve upon and decided to take the leap of faith.
Adair: We were really just frustrated customers who were looking for a more inspiring nail salon experience.
What sets tenoverten apart from other nail salons?
Nadine: Our brand ethos is all about creating a safer space for people to have their nails done. We aim to excel with sanitizing of tools, customer service, cleaner air and cleaner products used throughout our services all within a space that doesn't look like your typical nail salon.
Adair: Hygiene is our top priority and offering a safer manicure experience for both our customers and our employees. Aside from impeccable customer service, a lot of fun things too — an incredible nail polish selection, lots of amazing natural beauty products for retail and hard to find indie and international magazines to flip through.
Describe tenoverten in three words:
Nadine: Non-toxic Nail Experience
Adair: Welcoming, thoughtful and non-toxic.
