  • $20-$25 for a full set. Refills are about $15. But, if you want them to last, I'd recommend paying a little extra and going for the gel nails.

  • I want to warn you that It's a big commitment for maintenance. I pay like $40 or so for a full set & then every 10 - 14 days I pay $15 - $20 for a fill, depending on if I need them cut down. For me the hardest part is finding the time to go. Sometimes I have to have my nail tech call my assistant & schedule a "meeting" with me so I can get away from the office to get it done. Lol.

  • I paid $55 for a full set. I didn't like that they would grind on your natural nail so I found a woman that didn't do that and they lasted just as long as the ones that do.

    Do it if you are up for the maintenance that comes with them and the cost every month.

  • I think a really good manicure on a regular basis looks classy and professional. The acrylics look beautiful when put on correctly and maintained appropriately but nothing looks worse then grown out or broken fake nails.
