Leah Yari & Mary Lennon

Leah Yari and Mary Lennon share the story of how Mary’s frustration at not being able to have her daughter’s birthday party at a nail salon (that seemed healthy enough to host a bunch of kids) morphed into—not just an uber healthy salon—but an entire line of nail polish that is formaldehyde, toxin and gluten-free and vegan.The duo’s company Côte now has 2 environmentally safe salons in Brentwood, CA and NYC and a line of toxin-free polish with 125 different shades. Here they chat with Linda about their journey in quitting their jobs and launching a company (Leah was an interior designer; Mary was a school admissions director) and their ultimate goal: to transform the manicure experience for women—and their daughters.
