The 411: Nadine and Adair of Tenoverten

-------

When friends Nadine Ferber and Adair Ilyinsky noticed a dearth of, shall we say, a-step-above nail salons in their Tribeca neighborhood in 2010, they decided to go ahead and open their own. And thus was born Tenoverten, a project that was a slight departure for the owner of the forward-thinking West Village boutique Mick Margo and a financial analyst, respectively. But the response to the elegant little bastion of laid-back cool with its iPad stations and impressive polish roster (NARS, Chanel, et al., which are logged into a computer system lest you forget the name of your favorite shade) has been overwhelmingly positive from the get-go, so much so that Ferber and Ilyinsky recently branched out, or rather up, opening their second salon in Le Parker Meridien hotel. Here, the savvy pair share a few of their own fashion and beauty favorites in New York and beyond.



Nadine Ferber
The Hammam at Home: Aire Baths
“This place is a divine addition to our neighborhood. Tribeca is where I live and also where our flagship nail salon is located, so on a super long day it is nice to have Aire as a source of relaxation. I amreally into a hammam-style bathhouse after traveling to Marrakech and Istanbul and you can stop in just to use the baths or book an additional massage which is super luxurious.”
88 Franklin St., NYC, (212) 274-3777; www.ancientbathsny.com

The Destination Shop: Simple Life Home
“I stumbled upon this very cool store called Simple Life Home in my favorite neighborhood in Istanbul called Bebek. They sell everything so you can recreate a hammam-style experience your bathroom at home. I bought loads of their luxurious soaps and hammam towels. And while you are in the neighborhood you must stop by Mangerie Bebek for lunch.”

The Brow Guru: Jimena Garcia
“Jimena has changed the shape of my brows and perfected my lashes since she has come into my life. We were fortunate to land her as the brow expert at Tenoverten in Tribeca where she is now based five days a week. I go to her for regular lash tinting and brow shaping. She also introduced me to brow tinting, which makes my brows shiny, which I never expected.”

The Forever Skincare Remedy: Aquaphor
“Aquaphor Healing Ointment is my no-fuss simple solution to any dryness in my skin in the wintertime, and conveniently you can buy it anywhere.”
Available at drugstores nationwide


The Cleansing Ritual: Sunday Riley
“My sister Jaclyn writes this amazing beauty blog, which introduced me to the all-natural skincare line Sunday Riley. I’ve since become completely devoted to the Crème Cleanser, which I use every night with my Clarisonic.”
Available at www.sundayriley.com

The Daily Beauty Do: Josie Maran Argan Color Stick in Rosy
“I like to use mostly all-natural beauty products, especially since I am in the midst of my second pregnancy. So I’m very thankful for the entire Josie Maran line. I use her Color Stick often just to bring some color to my cheeks and lips while on the go. I also don’t have to worry about any lingering nasty chemicals rubbing off on my 15-month-old daughter when I’m using her line, which is an added bonus.”

Adair Ilyinsky
The Shake Shack: Bell Bates Natural Foods
“This is my favorite place in the neighborhood to get a healthy shake. It’s right across from the salon, which makes it especially convenient on busy days. I usually have almond milk, banana, kale, pineapple (so I don’t taste the kale), and PaleoGreens.”
7 Reade St., NYC, (212) 267-4300; www.bellbates.com

The Tough-Love Trainer: Jon Bokelmann
“Jon is one of the most popular trainers at the Equinox in Tribeca and within the whole company. Even though he has a zillion clients, he make me feel like a top priority, and our training sessions force me to get to the gym. No excuses!”

The Nail Essentials: Tenoverten Polish in Worth and RGB Remover Pads
“Worth is one of our new colors for fall/winter. I love that it’s a warm gold, which makes it universally flattering; it will be a great shade for holiday parties. And I never leave home without the RGB pads in my purse and cosmetic case for travel. They’re soy-based and 100-percent natural; great for removing polish in between Tenoverten manicures.”
Available at www.tenoverten.com and www.rgbcosmetics.com

The Super Stylist: Jeff Chastain
“Jeff did my hair for my wedding and I haven’t seen anyone else since. I love that he accepts appointments via email and text.”

The Biodegradable Bathroom Buddy: Further
“The Further hand soap is made from discarded vegetable oil from restaurants and is completely biodegradable so it’s eco-friendly, which I appreciate. And the bottle looks so pretty on the bathroom sink, too.”
