Clean & Cleanse Profile: Adair Ilyinsky & Nadine Abramcyk of tenoverten

May 15, 2017

tenoverten began when co-founders Nadine Abramcyk and Adair Ilyinsky saw a lack of proper nail salons in their Tribeca neighborhood. Unable to find a beautiful, relaxing setting for expert services, they set out to create their own. Today, tenoverten includes five salons in New York and Austin, Texas and an environmentally and health-conscious line of polishes free of harmful chemicals and made here in the USA. We can’t get enough of their phenomenal colors – all named after a different street in Downtown Manhattan and the beautiful salon settings (SoHo is a favorite!). Co-founders Nadine and Adair are also girl-bosses who are able to find that coveted balance between entrepreneurship and family. Read on to learn more about how they do it.

Adair Ilyinky

The first thing I do when I wake up is…
Stumble into my daughters’ room to bring them into our bed for more snuggle (and hopefully sleep) time.

The last thing I do before bed is…
Put a few drops of Naturopathica’s Chill Aromatic Alchemy on my pillowcase.

I feel most beautiful when…
I’m really carving out the time to take care of myself both physically and emotionally. 

My favorite beauty product is…
tenoverten’s The Foundation, a nourishing base coat that can be worn alone since it has a lovely light pink tint.

To age gracefully, I recommend a person’s skincare regimen change with…
Lavishing TLC.  In my 20’s my skin was so resilient that I could go to bed after a late night without taking off my makeup or skip the extras like eye cream, but now I’ve realized my skin looks proportionally better to the time I spend taking care of it.

I splurge on…
Monthly facials at heyday (although it’s not really a splurge since they’re so affordable) and fine bed linens. 

One beauty tip that may surprise you is…
It’s best not to take a hot shower post-manicure (wait until the next day) whereas rinsing one’s hands in ice cold water will help set nail polish.

For a quick beauty pick me up, I recommend…
Using an enzyme mask to brighten dull skin.  I like the VITAL C Hydrating Enzyme Masque by Image Skincare because it’s gentle enough to be applied daily but still very active.

The beauty product I can’t live without is…
Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist Sunscreen.

My favorite Laundress product is…
Eek it’s so hard for me to choose, but I **think** the Whites Detergent.

I never leave the house without…
So boring but, my phone. 

I incorporate clean living by…
Trying to eat and feed my children as little processed food as possible, filling our toy chest with wood instead of plastic, using all natural beauty products (except a few CHANEL favorites I loathe to give up), and of course washing our clothes and cleaning our home with The Laundress products exclusively.

I relax by…
Lying in bed with a good old-fashioned magazine.

The first thing I do when I wake up is…
Smother my kids with kisses. 

The last thing I do before bed is…
Brush my teeth. 

I feel most beautiful when…
I’m taking care of myself from the inside out. 

My favorite beauty products are…
tenoverten Rose Cuticle Oil, Vintner’s Daughter Face Oil, and Jao Goe Body Oil.

To age gracefully, I recommend a person’s skincare regimen change with…
As you age your skin has different needs. Trust your instincts and change your skincare regimen seasonally as the climate can have a big effect on your skin and needs more tending to as you age.

I splurge on…
Face oils and shoes. 

One beauty tip that may surprise you is…
To put your face oil or moisturizer on while your face is wet from a hydrating toner mist (I like the one from Josh Rosebrook) If you apply your oil or moisturizer on top of damp skin you will absorb more of the hydration and hydrated skin is younger looking skin.

For a quick beauty pick me up, I recommend…
Buying a jade roller. Keep it in your refrigerator and after you apply your face oil roll it in with the cool roller to help it absorb into your skin and for a lovely beauty ritual.

The beauty product I can’t live without is…
My Shu Uemura eyelash curler.

My favorite Laundress product is…
The Delicate Wash in Lady.

I never leave the house without…
My iPhone & Olio e Osso all natural balm.

I incorporate clean living by…
Using natural products to clean my home, using natural beauty products as part of my ongoing beauty regiment and being cognizant of my household leaving as small of a carbon footprint as possible.

I relax by…
Spending time with my family preferably on a beach somewhere.
