A La Mode Boutique Offers Earth-friendly Alternative to Traditional Nail Salons

Popular Edina shop A La Mode Boutique and Nail Spa opened its second location in Wayzata in May and is helping redefine the nail salon experience across the metro.

President Sara Saferstein says, “Our focus is solely natural nails,” meaning they use products without harsh chemicals. “We use stand-alone pedicure basins so there is no bacteria buildup,” she says, “and all our lotions and scrubs are all-natural, and gluten- and nut-free.”

For fall, Saferstein recommends the Deborah Lippman ROAR collection, with colors like She Wolf (mauve, $18) and Can’t Be Tamed (gold glitter, $20). A La Mode Boutique and Nail Spa, 775 Lake St. E., Wayzata; 952.476.0457; alamodenails.com
