If the sun and sand are taking a toll on your tootsies, look no further for beautiful summer feet. There are plenty of spas and salons around town that will have your toes twinkling again in no time, leaving them perfectly polished and ready to be seen. Break out those summer sandals!

Spot Spa

All-natural nail treatments are the hallmark of this spa, which sources beauty products from organic brands like Arcona, Earth Tu Face, Absolution, and more. Visit the Uptown or Northeast location for an hour long signature pedicure ($55-$65). Or make an afternoon out of your visit with the “Head to Toe” treatment, an extensive session that includes an enzyme foot peel followed by a 75 minute massage. The spa also features “Buff and Go” treatments ($40) for those in need of a quick touch-up. (21 Fourth St. SE, Minneapolis, 612-331-4182; 1600 W. Lake St., Minneapolis, 612-823-7768,

A La Mode

With locations in Edina and now Wayzata, this chic boutique is the perfect place to pamper your toes in style. All featured treatments are chemical-free. Go with the signature pedicure ($40, complete with a callus maintenance, sugar scrub, and more) or take the luxurious route ($60 for all of the above plus a hydrating mask and hot towel wrap)–whatever you choose, both are sure bets for flawless feet. (3928 W. 50th St., Edina, 952- 300-2642; 755 Lake St. E., Wayzata, 952-476-0457,

Phresh Spa Salon

Fix your toes and sip on a glass of wine at this spa’s charming Grand Avenue location or at its equally prime spot in St. Louis Park’s West End shopping district. The salon’s quaint three-story house in St. Paul celebrates its seven-year anniversary this month. And if you’re interested in a group outing, book a spa party with the girls and let Phresh handle the food. Their catering services coordinate everything from produce platters to pastries. (1639 Park Place Blvd., St. Paul, 763-450-1111; 937 Grand Ave., St. Paul, 651-288-4040,

Lili Salon Spa

Both locations of Lili Salon Spa have a modern, clean feel bound to put anyone at ease. And the minimalistic decor could not be more on point. Traditional pedicures start at $42, but treat yourself with an upgrade to the MoroccanOil brand version for just $30 more. Follow their Facebook page to stay up to date with future promotions, including a bunch of beauty deals going on at the Edina location for next week’s Galleria Clearance Experience. (5757 Sanibel Drive, Suite 1, Minnetonka, 952-935-5000 (dial option 1); 3464 Galleria, Edina, 952-935-5000 (dial option 2),

reVamp! Salon Spa

As its name suggests, this spa is the perfect place for a complete foot makeover—and the monthly promotions are killer deals. “Friends with Benefits,” happening right now, lets you and a friend take $20 off your pedicure. The boutique also features quite the backstory: They were originally founded in Minneapolis to help primp KSTP on-air talent for old daytime talk show Good Company. Talk about legitimacy.
