Minty-Fresh Feet

Since sandal season is year-round in Florida, you need to keep on your toes to make sure your tootsies stay sexy and callus-free. You could do the sloughing, rubbing, and polishing yourself but that is such a drag. Instead, treat your tired feet to a relaxing hour in the calming oasis of the subterranean Spa V at Hotel Victor. Ease into the comfy spa chair, order a mojito, and indulge in Spa V’s new MojiTOE’s pedicure. After soaking in a warm, bubbling bath of mint and lime sea salts, you’ll receive an exfoliating raw sugar cane scrub to smooth out those rough patches, followed by an invigorating mint lotion massage to ease the stress in your feet and calves. And the best part (I know, it keeps getting better!) is that the spa carries the Lippman Collection line of nail lacquers by celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippman. With shades like the pale pink Sarah Smile (created with Sarah Jessica Parker), a black cherry Just Walk Away Renee (as in Renee Zellweger), and the shimmering gun metal Hit Me With Your Best Shot (Pat Benatar, of course), how will you ever decide? The pampering costs $70, but if you book your appointment Monday through Thursday (through September 28), you will save $15. Call 305-725-6500, or visit
