  • cost depends on the Place, but usually the initial set is $35-40 plus tip, then a fill is usually $20-25 plus tip. Time also depends on the experience of your technician, usually about 40+ minutes for the full set, less for a fill.

  • It depends who you go to, I have been going to the same lady for over 30 years, and never had a problem, I pay 25.00 for a refill, but there are a lot of people out there using less than good quality material s that will charge less, I wouldn't, trust my nails to those people..

  • I'm in SC and it usually costs around $30 for acrylic nails ($35 for french tips). Can take anywhere from 30 minutes to no more than an hour to have them done.

  • 2 hours! That seems way too long. I would have my son with, so I might wait till he is in school bc he would be way to bored, lol plus doesn't it smell of fumes?

  • 35-40 plus a tip to fill in is closer to 20 plus tip. fill ins need done every 2 weeks or so. Mine usually took about an hour from start to dry for a fill in longer for the initial visit. Nail need replaced every so often as well.

  • just a warning- beware of the asian nail places... or if you see someplace where the nail techs are wearing masks.


     You do NOT want to go to a place that has product with MMA in it


    here is some info about it http://www.beautytech.info/qa/qa6.htm


    should take about an hour-ish to have them done ...unless it is someone with less experience- then it will take a bit longer
