There's one certainty that comes with warmer weather: you're going to need to step up your pedicure game. Luckily, there's no shortage of places in LA to get the deed done. And whether you want a wham-bam type service or like to relax with a calf massage and a session or two in the massage chairs, we've got a spot for you. These salons, revealed to us last Beauty Week, are where LA fashion people go to get their toes in shape for sandal season.

1. CT Nails #9

Copy Link
7854 Santa Monica Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90046
I've been obsessed with the nail art phenomenon for years, and I blame it all on CT Nails #9 By David. Since David is a former CT Nails III artist and that salon is only a few doors down, both places have a little battle going on. I prefer this CT because not only are the design options wild and abundant, but the price is right: $13 for a pedi!—Natalie Alcala

250 South Robertson Boulevard
Beverly Hills, CA 90211
This new salon is officially my favorite. It's super clean and nice inside, they use only non-toxic products and a pedi costs just five bucks more than the sketch place down the street from me.—Leslie Price

3. Jackie's Nails

903 N. Fairfax Ave.
West Hollywood, CA 90046
They have a great color selection, paraffin wax treatment is included in the mani and pedi and the price is great—$30 for both. They're also so nice.—Elizabeth Kott, Closet Rich

4. Lemon Nail & Spa

The nail technicians nip cuticles, soften calluses and paint to gleaming perfection. Walk-ins are welcome. Added bonus: the bright, cheery setting, the comfortable Lazy-Boy like chairs and its proximity to the neighborhood's hippest boutique Elyse Walker.—Marlien Rentmeester, Le Catch

I've been friends with Diane (the owner) longer than most people I know in L.A.! For twelve years she has truly treated me like family, and I can't wait to hear about what's going on with my girls every week. It's a wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am mani-pedi, unless of course you want to lurk a little longer for the best shoulder massage in town (ask for Aida).—Brenna Egan, former LA editor of Refinery29

6. Deluxe Nail Bar Spa

Copy Link
2913 Main St
Santa Monica, CA 90405
It's consistently good, the owner is super accommodating, and they always have Bravo reality shows playing on the flat screen. A perfect guilty pleasure.—Andrea Arria-Devoe, Beso.com contributing editor

7. Azure Nail Salon

Copy Link
2106 Wilshire Boulevard
Santa Monica, CA
I love that they do your mani and pedi at the same time for maximum efficiency and the older lady that runs the place gives a mean shoulder massage (an extra charge but very affordable)—Alisa Gould-Simon, Pose.
