I have no idea what a manicure costs in this area.
What, no wine?

Mani-pedis are the only thing that is more expensive in NE Ohio than in Stony Brook-Setauket L.I. NY. Strange but true. I should check current prices though. I am going back almost a decade.

SO - How much where you live and does it include any extras?
Yes. NYC metro (including LI) actually has some of the cheapest mani/pedi prices. I read something about it and it has to do with how saturated NYC is with nail salons.

Anyway, yup. I can get a mani/pedi for $25, I live on Long Island, Nassau County (regular pedi and mani, just polish, not gel & no design). Paid $45 in Detroit and $65 in San Diego for various weddings I've attended

If I travel five minutes in one direction I can get a basic manicure for ten dollars.
A full set for sixteen dollars. And a fill for twelve dollars.
(The cheap places use the drill or whatever)
If I travel five minutes in the opposite direction it's fifty dollars + and all filing is done manually.

From a basic nail salon, $25-35 for a pedi. If you're talking an upscale nail "boutique," $45+ for a pedi. When I lived in ATL proper and visited a nail boutique, I spent roughly $80+ for mani (gel)/pedi.

Wow! I never realized how expensive Madi/Pedi's were everywhere. Usually, where I live things are more expensive.. Well, I will now not complain that every other store in my town is a nail salon, brings the price down due to competition! I pay 30 for a basic madi/pedi… includes leg massage for about one minute and a back massage for 3 minutes while drying... live in Westchester County, NY.

How exactly is this relevant to the topic? It's a Fashion & Beauty Forum. Maybe you would enjoy the welding forum more.

I pay $51 for a gel manicure and a pedicure every three weeks in Fort Lauderdale but I know prices vary a great deal.

I can always tell when someone does their own nails, alot of times it looks sloppy. Self nail care are never as clean, where when professionally done the nails are clean, perfectly shaped, the polish is not too thick, cuticles are cleaned up and no hangnails. I don't like spending the money either but professional manicure makes a big difference (and MUCH nicer).

Oh and I forgot to mention the feet. Crusty dry heels is just gross! Foot care is important. Not taking care of your feet (crusty dry heels) look really bad and can lead to problems depending how bad the lack of care is, especially if there is diabetes in the mix.
