I always feel like Fall is the start of the New Year because big changes occur: hot to cold weather, our color palette goes from light and bright to warm and cozy, sandals move to the back of the closet, you get the idea. The January New Year just doesn’t make sense to me because it lacks the sensory transition that is the hallmark of Fall.
My style and beauty regimes also do a 360 starting in September. I am saying goodbye to pastel nail polishes, suntans and beachy hair styles. It’s time for the richness of the season!
NAILS Zoya’s Fall Collection is all about deep pigments and color saturation that make a dramatic statement. Sage, slate gray and purple and turmeric are the hot colors for Fall/Winter. Look like you own this new trend when you pull your hands from your gloves this season. Zoya is the only polish we stock at juju: 5-free, non-toxic, low fumes and great colors.
HAIR Fall/Winter 2015’s “it” color is Turmeric. Turmeric’s autumn tones for hair color are great because you can turn up the tone or blend in its hues to your hair depending on the look you’re going for.

BODY Here’s what Fall and Winter try to do to undermine your skin: Dry indoor heating, cold windy weather and dark dreary days equals scaly, dry and lack-luster. 100% Pure’s Body Butters to the rescue. Start using them now so you never miss a beat when the cold weather hits. I love 100% Pure’s rich and creamy Eucalyptus Body Butter: warming, moisturizing and healing.
I’m going straight to the point. What I think of Zoya nail polishes is that they’re SUPER AWESOME. I’m not just saying that because I’m juju’s web fairy and it’s my job to tell you that we got new (ahhh-mazing!) shades in the salon. I’m saying this because these two Zoyas I own are my all-time favorite nail polishes. They stay on well and for long, and look beautiful. The best thing is that they’re non-toxic – no formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate or camphor. This doesn’t make much of a difference to my boyfriend though – he still tells me to go to another room when I put the polish on because of the ‘stink’. These polishes do have a chemical fragrance as all polishes do, but it’s less than with conventional polishes. Also, it’s just comforting to know that none of the worst poisons you could put on and in your body, are totally absent from this brand’s products.
As I write this, I’m looking at these two happy polishes sitting on my desk. The bright red is called Sooki and is my favorite – it’s classic, has a nice seductive air about it, and it makes me feel like Marilyn Monroe inside. It spreads easily and evenly, and the finish is clear and crisp.
The lime green polish is called Mitzi and I got it because I wanted something shocking. The tone was yellower than I expected, so the shock-value wasn’t fully realized, but it works well for those days when I want a retro mod type look, or to feel fashionable and edgy, or I just want a break from other colors and use something totally different on my nails. The finish is matte which is exciting.
We don’t have Zoya polishes in our online store, but you can find them at our salon – go take a peak, and book a service from our menu by calling 215-238-6080. We offer nail services on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and every other Sunday. Mention this special and you’ll get a free Zoya nail polish with any service in October!
