When we got the invite to the Taryn Toomey and TenOverTen Collaboration launch, we literally got butterflies we were so excited. Two brands that we love, coming together – what could be better than that?!
Just to level set, Taryn Toomey is the spiritual force behind The Class, the cult exercise class that is just as much therapy as it is a workout. What we love about Taryn is that she isn’t one of those dreamy, everything is totally magical all the time, spiritual people. She’s real and honest, and talks about the hard stuff, like the veils we keep around ourselves that cover our true selves, and the stories we tell ourselves from our childhood that aren’t real. She goes deep. She also has incredible taste, as evidence by her new nail collection.
Nadine Abramcyk, one of the founders of TenOverTen, also has incredible taste, and a mission that’s right up The Moment’s alley. She opened her toxin-free nail salons in 2011 and has been taking over the nail universe ever since. Her salons are beautiful and luxe, and don’t have any of the chemicals and toxins that you find in most nail salons. Her nail polish remover even smells like roses.
So when asked about the collaboration, Nadine and Taryn agreed that their brands are super aligned, but also that they’re just great friends and they like working with friends. The nail colors have names’ like, Love Elixir and Dusted Soul– we choose the light white Cleared Vail, and have been admiring our nails ever since.
The best part of the morning? The heart opening arm series we did, lead by Taryn. Opening our arms wider and wider and then ending in a moment of gratitude, we really did feel our hearts opening. Yes, it dried our nails, but it also put us in the right mind set for the rest of the day. Exactly our idea of beauty.
Special thanks to Taryn and Nadine!
