4 Hip New Nail Salons

Nail salons

Nail salons across the country are putting a luxury shine on the typical no-frills manicure—and the women (and some men) of the style set can’t resist. Appointments are booked up two weeks in advance at New York’s Paintbox, where the sleek lacquered stations and a seasonal edit of designs reflect the hip SoHo location. British brand Nails Inc. recently unveiled its first stateside salon, inside Saks Fifth Avenue’s midtown Manhattan flagship. Options range from a simple polish change to a Swarovski-crystalembellished look. Olive & June, on an airy Beverly Hills block, has a Scandinavian feel and stocks cult-favorite brands like Treat Collection and Odacité. Miami’s understated Gloss Nail Bar specializes in eco-friendly products, including its own all-natural polish line.

Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC Launches In-Room "Glamour Bar"

201411-hd-glamour-bar-1jpg

I’m a notorious over-packer. And when it comes to filling my suitcase, an extra pair of heels always seems to take precedence over a hair dryer. Problem is, I immediately regret this decision when I get to the hotel, check in, and find that ubiquitous, awful, 80s-style dryer that hangs in many a guest room. You know, the one that that leaves your locks parched and lifeless. One hotel that’s solving this packing problem: Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC, the first luxury hotel to outfit guest rooms with a “Glamour Bar,” starting today.

Fragrance Obsession: La Parfumerie Moderne

201411-hd-la-parfumerie-modernejpg

This fall, I’ve been crushing on a new fragrance line: Philippe Neirinck’s La Parfumerie Moderne, which evokes the glamorous, Art Deco days of travel. (The streamlined labels are even a nod to vintage luggage tags and hotel logos.) The collection of three perfumes, all unisex, includes Désarmant—a lilac scent with heart notes of cinnamon, ylang ylang, and rose, as well as base notes of osmanthus and vanilla, among others.

Nyakio Kamoche Grieco's Kenyan-Inspired Beauty Brand

Nyakio Kamoche eye balm

Nyakio Kamoche Grieco reflects on the Kenyan origins of her cult-favorite beauty brand.

While working at a talent agency in L.A., first-generation Kenyan-American Nyakio Kamoche Grieco was exposed to beauty brands from all over the globe. Noticeably missing, she realized, were the rich ingredients of her parents’ homeland. “I felt like the sophistication of Africa was underrepresented,” she says. In 2013, she founded her namesake skin-care line, using kola nut, marula oil, and other elements from the continent to create products that work for all skin types. She spoke to T+L about her inspirations.

Get Glowing Skin at NYC's BeautyRx Peel Bar

201411-hd-beauty-barjpg

When it comes to beauty, the word “peel” has acquired a lot of negative connotations over the years. So naturally, when I was invited to test out BeautyRx’s new Peel Bar at the Butterfly Studio Salon, in NYC’s Flatiron District, I was somewhat hesitant, never having undergone a glycolic facial peel at the derm’s office. The result, I’m happy to report, deserves only positive associations.

Gucci's Packable New Makeup Line

Gucci makeup

This fall, my must-have accessory isn’t a pair of riding boots or a bomber jacket. Nope, I am officially obsessed with a red lipstick—packaged in a minimalist black tube, marked by interlocking Gs—from Gucci. For the first time ever, the Italian fashion house is stepping into the world of beauty with a range of products including lipsticks, shadows, foundations, and high-wattage mascara. If you're planning a city getaway for this fall, add these makeup essentials to your carry-on routine.

Fall-in-the-City Beauty Essentials

201409-hd-fall-essentials-productsjpg

Now that summer has officially ended, T+L editorial assistant Katie James shares her favorite new products to help you shift seasonal gears.

Dolce & Gabbana Aurealux Mask ($169 for six): The beginning of fall means cooler temperatures, layered wardrobes—and all-around confused skin. To combat summer-level oil production and fall dryness, facemasks are my pinch-hitters. I’ve tried plenty, but this one—from Dolce & Gabbana’s debut Aurealux skincare collection—is supremely hydrating. I smooth the fabric over my face and neck right before bed (it fits like a glove), let sit for 10 to 15 minutes, and upon removal, my skin feels plump and refreshed—a recipe for sweet dreams, indeed.
