I'm looking into going to school for this OR to be a manicurist. Anyone do either of these as a profession? Just need some feed back and advice. Thanks ladies

Yes I love it. The availability all depends on your location. You have to be able to sit and wait for clients if you're an independent contractor, but you can also do salary work and get paid by the hour. 

I charge: $15 for a manicure/ 45min

             $35 for a full set/1 hour

             $20 for a fill/ 50min

I actually have been doing nails for 17yrs and when I started we didn't need a license, so I was grandfathered in and didn't have to go to school. It would probably cost about $1000.00 to start your nail supplies.
