How Much Does it Cost to Get Your Nails Done Professionally?

Let's explore the question that often pops up in our minds: "How much does it cost to get your nails done professionally?"

Whether you're new to the world of dip powder nails or considering a change in your current nail routine, understanding the costs involved will help you make an informed decision. Let's dive right in!

Factors Affecting the Cost:

  • Service Type
  • Salon Location
  • Skill and Experience
  • Salon Reputation

The Average Costs

Here are the average costs amongst nail salons across the country:

  • Basic Manicure: around $20-$30 for a regular polish manicure, which includes shaping, cuticle care, hand massage, and nail polish application.
  • Gel Manicure: typically costs between $30 to $50. This option uses a special UV gel polish that can resist chipping for up to a couple of weeks.
  • Acrylic Nails: Often ranging between $55 and $85, acrylic nails are durable and can last several weeks. They are created by applying a monomer liquid and acrylic powder mixture onto your natural nails or extensions.
  • Nail Extensions: sculpted gel or acrylic manicures using nail extensions are usually priced at $60-$120, including the design, length, and shape.
  • Dip Powder Nails: ranges from $40-$60. This popular technique involves "dipping" your nails into a pigmented powder or glitter mixed with a finely milled acrylic powder, resulting in a long-lasting, chip-resistant manicure. The nail tech should be using the pour over method for sanitary reasons.

Additional Considerations


  • Tipping: It's customary to tip your nail tech around 20%.
  • Frequency of Visits: Regular maintenance appointments are essential to keep your nails looking their best. Consider the long-term cost before committing to a specific service.
  • Upgrades and Add-ons:  nail art, decorative gems, or chrome will usually cost additional.

Now that you have a better understanding of the costs associated with getting your nails done professionally, you can confidently make decisions while keeping your budget in mind. Whether you chose to continue going to the nail salon or save money by doing your own dip powder manicure at home, we are here to support you on your journey!
