I say that as someone who does my own manicure (and clear polish most of the time at that!) unless I'm going to an event.

Back on topic, basic pedicures at places I feel comfortable with in my area are about $45. I only get them a few times a year and take of my feet myself (with the help of foot peeling masks like Baby Feet and a whole lot of O'Keeffe's Healthy Feet and a big tub of Bag Balm) the rest of the year. Love fun polish in the summer, though!

Yup! You'd think after decades of practice I wouldn't make a mess of my nails, and yet...

Essie's no-cure gel polishes help cover a lot of sins when I decide to deviate from my clear polish (which I mostly use to help prevent breakage). And even then, I normally have to redo at least 3 nails again. I have short, stubby, chubby fingers so I don't like to draw a lot of attention to them with bright nail polish, but a well shaped nail in a dark or neutral color that's got some length to it really helps lengthen the appearance of the finger.

Cuticles are a whole other ball game.

I usually just do pedis, and pricing depends on the options you choose. Generally around $35 and up--suburban Houston.

*and that includes a complimentary cocktail

I just do pedis. They have gone from $21. to $25. here, outside of Savannah. It is a lengthy and thorough pedi, including a nice leg massage. Well worth the money. A nice Vietnamese family owns it.

In Ohio, it was $45. and I imagine it’s more now. I would not pay that on a regular basis.

That's a steal with quality work.
Atlanta Ga.


Ours is the same here in SC. I think I would have a heart attack or stroke paying what some of you pay.

Southern DE a basic pedi is $25 and I don't know about the manicures since I never get one. The two people I know who had gel manicures paid $40 and $50 respectively. The problem here is to find a place that can do one that's worth the cost. I see some awful work and know of only one reliable place that's recommended to everyone in a 25 miles radius.

Today at work I saw a serious nail job with extensions and textured polish and adornments and I wondered if I made enough in a week to cover that kind of (good) work in this area.

I’m getting a basic pedi tomorrow and it’s $41... I usually only do pedis, but I think a basic mani is $35.

Also, I’m having it done at a day spa, so maybe a bit pricier than nail salons.

Thanks, I did! I went with my daughter right before her HS prom. She got the full package and was beautiful. I have a very pretty color on my toes right now. It was a lovely day.
