organic manis pedis philadelphia juju salonThe Swim Club, the beach, Havianas, yoga class, my new cork wedges…top reasons I want my toes to look glam right now!  There are tons of choices for us green-leaning girls.  At juju, our 3rd top selling product is our Zoya Nail Polishes!  Awesome right?  Our clients are no fools, they want their non-toxic nail polishes in fashion forward colors and they want them now!

Eco-fashionistas are buying non-toxic nail polishes by the dozens. Demand is up! Which is great, because demand creates competition and new and lovely 3 Free polishes are cropping up everywhere!  What is 3 Free you ask?  Lacquers that sport NO Formaldehyde, NO Toluene, NO DBP.  Most are also camphor free and vegan.

My top picks, aside from the hundreds of shades available from my beloved Zoya?  Butter London.  This cheeky line offers THE BEST COLOURS this side of the pond.  Check out their newest limited edition selection “No More Waity, Katie” a soft, elegant grey shade with a splash of lilac glitter for the perfect marriage to combine fashion and fun.

Top kudos goes to Spa Ritual.  Dedicated to the spa tradition, sparitual is committed to creating eco-friendly products and packaging perfectly crafted for the enlightened consumer. Spa Ritual uses Vegan ingredients from around the world, including many specially sourced and selected plant essences that are wildcrafted OR organic. The formulations are naturally colored and free of synthetic dyes.

So, next time you pop into a nail shop for a quick mani/pedi, peek around.  If the practitioners are wearing masks, the bottles look old and gloopy and color palettes are well, the worst, then set your GPS for the nearest natural nail salon and try the latest offerings!
