If you have acrylic nails....

What do you pay??? I have gotten regular manicures and pedicures for years ($55 for both). I just went back to work after 10 years and decided to get my acrylic nails put back on. It was $75 for the full set and I paid $45 for my first fill today. Is that high? I remember getting fills for $18-$22 bucks a decade ago.

Just get gel polish on your natural nails. I haven't gotten acrylic nails in years.

Acrylics are a haven for fungus.
Gel is better.

Hell yes that's high unless you're getting some special type of pedi, or designs. I get a basic pedi and basic full set. Costs me 50 plus tip.

Depends where I go, if I go to a typical Asian nail salon 45 for both pedicure and full set. If I go to an upscale nail
Boutique $55-75 for full set and $30 for a pedi

Have you looked into gel? It's a lot healthier and still looks great. Newer technology.

Are you sure you got acrylic and not gel? That's a normal price for gel. A full-set acrylic mani is still $20-25 here. Fills are $10-15 (Mani only) And I'm in a very very high col area, too.

That is crazy high. I pay $35 for a full set with gel polish. $25 for a fill with gel polish.

That seems very high for acrylic. Unless you got fancy designs added to your nails. Some designs can run 10-20 per nail. I have never paid more than $45 for acrylics, and I live where everything costs more than the national average.
