While Los Angeles is a veritable sea of nail salons for on-the-fly manicures, there aren’t many non-spa spots that feel particularly luxurious. Enter Côte, a serene, grey-washed space that looks like it belongs in Harbour Island—not on one of L.A.’s busiest drags. The best part though is that Côte—and its collection of 109 polish shades—is completely five-free (no formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, camphor, or formaldehyde resin). It’s a winning, and well-executed combination (there’s also a sweet little shop in the front, full of finds from the French countryside)—we’d be surprised if the city isn’t blanketed with Côte outposts soon.
