How Much Do Acrylic Nails Cost?

The question “how much do acrylic nails cost?” doesn’t have a simple answer. The cost of acrylic nails depends on what kind of place you go to, the type of service or customization you request, and how often you schedule maintenance appointments. Acrylic nails are appealing, but there’s quite a bit to know about them which we will discuss in depth here.

The Cost for Basic Clear Acrylics and Repairs

Like most businesses, nail salons vary in their levels of expertise.  You might find prices as low $10 for a full set of acrylic nails, but do not expect high quality service and results at a bargain price.  For clear and simple acrylics, $60 is the most you should pay for high quality.

Price also depends on the type of service you need for your nails.  The starting price for new, quality acrylics on bare nails costs roughly $35 for a full set and acrylic tips for $30. The price will continually increase based on the reputation of the salon and expert.

According to the health experts at Cost Helper, there are three main levels of price ranges. Small and local shops offer the lowest price level. Spas and salons have quality service for mid range pricing.  Hotels and resort spas have highest priced nail services.  

Your natural nail will continue growing beneath the artificial surface.  As the nail grows, a line forms between the acrylic finish and your cuticle. To limit the exposure of this gap, your acrylics require regular salon visits to fill in space with more acrylics.

How much is it for a manicure?

Whether you're looking for a simple buff and polish or an intricate design, a manicure can range from $20-40+ depending on where you go, but it all depends on what you want since every salon offers something different!

You're sure to find the perfect salon experience no matter your budget with all of these great options available!

How much does acrylic nails cost?

To maintain your nails, you will need about two additional appointments per month for refills and repairs, costing about $10 to $15 each. According to the experts at the Acrylic Nails Guide, repairs typically cost about one-third of the initial price.

To prevent acrylic tips from breaking or splitting, try to keep your nails dry. Wear rubber gloves while doing chores around the house.  According to Beauty Heaven, lifted nails put you at risk for fungal infections. If you find that you have a few lifted nails, you should have them repaired as soon as possible.

The Price of Designs and High Quality Brands

If you are interested in acrylic nails that are beyond the simple, clear set, expect to pay more. Colors such as white or pink require extra time and materials that will cost roughly $50 to $80 for a full set.

For unique and creative designs such as holiday themed patterns, French tips, solar nails, and stiletto nails the price climbs upwards of $100 to $120. Remember to keep in mind the repair cost for these specialty nails are much higher than the standard $10 to $15 as well. 

Reputable salons stock high quality brands and normally will not give you an option. Small, local, bargain salons may give you a choice to pay an extra $10 or so for a better brand. We recommend that you always choose a high quality brand such as CND or OPI.

What if My Real Nails are Already Long?

If your actual nails are long, you have a couple of options. You can cut your nails and pay the standard rates for a full set of acrylics.  Keeping your long nails is another option, but it will take more time and materials and end up costing you an extra $10 or so. 

Another name for a full set of acrylic nails is known as “sculpted nails.” Applying sculpted nails is not your only option.  You can choose just to get the tips of your nails done, which will take less time and cost less money. However, you have to trim your real nails to apply acrylic tips.

What is the Process for Applying Acrylic Nails?

Acrylic nail cost

To properly apply acrylic nails, your natural nails must be clean and dry. Professional manicurists will file your nails and push your cuticles back. They remove any debris from dead cuticles, which makes your nails look longer and more appealing to the eye. 

Next, you need to decide if you want artificial tips of if you want the gel and powder directly over your natural nails. If you choose the option for artificial tips, you will then need to select your desired length. The manicurist will find a faux nail to match your width and shape.

Liquid and powder, more formally known as monomer and polymer in the cosmetics world, are the two main sources to glue the tips on the nail bed. The two ingredients are placed in separate jars, and your manicurist will dip a small brush into each.

Mixing the two formulas and carefully but quickly applying them will blend your artificial tips and natural nails together. According to cosmologist Jodie Michalak, this is the most difficult part of the process.

Improper application of the monomer and polymer blend may cause your nails to look too thick, crooked, or lumpy. Choosing experienced manicurists from salons with well-known reputations limit your chances of receiving an improper application.   

Once the tip is applied, the nails are filed and buffed to achieve your requested shape and length. The buffing process also removes unwanted acrylic debris, which results in a smooth finish. 

The final step is painting and polishing. Popular choices include French manicures, shades of red, pink, or neutral colors. Nail polish stays on fake nails longer than your natural nails, according to skin and nail care expert Kalee Isabella.

How much does a gel nail fill cost?

When it comes to gel nail fill prices, there's no one-size-fits all. Depending on the level of detail and intricacy, gel manis can start around $35-$40 while the more beautiful and creative ones can cost up to as much as $60 or more. But if you're feeling more wild and crazy there's no limit on how much it could end up costing!

That's not including your 20% tip though which you should always give at least 15%.

How often do people get their nails done? Gel fill can be a bi-weekly affordable luxury that keeps your hands nice and polished all week long.

How much to remove fake nails?

The average acrylic removal cost can range from $15 and up. This could also depend on location and skills.

Here are 2 ways.

Nail technicians use a drill to grind out the acrylic. Some may clip the long nails or soak before grinding. The procedure takes about 5-10 minutes for fingers and 5-10 minutes for toes.

The second way is to soak all 10 fingers with clear polish remover or soak each finger with acetone. Acrylic nail removal process can take anywhere from 30-60 minutes.

Final Thoughts

So how much do acrylic nails cost?  It depends on how much you want to spend. Although it is not recommended, you can find a small cheap salon to do them for $10 to $20.  For high-end resorts, hotels, and spas, you will spend over $60 for basic nails.

The average person visiting a reputable salon should pay $30 to $60 for quality acrylics. Price increases based on colors, designs, brands, nail length and other factors.

Can people stop judging me for having long acrylic nails?

TextSalma Haidrani

Salma Haidrani addresses the day-to-day snobbery she encounters for her chosen length of nails in a personal piece

Pretty much every time I head to the salon for a fresh set of acrylics, I notice a pattern. Not only am I inundated with compliments on my colour choice – this year has seen me sport neon green à la Rihanna, white for my summer spent in Ibiza and electric blue for impending autumn – but I’m also usually faced with a barrage of comments about how many inches long they are. (Admittedly, their length could give Cardi B a run for her money). 

In every instance, they’re often unsolicited. Just take how a nail artist once visibly stiffened in disapproval at my length and trimmed them without consulting me first. Much to my amusement, men have even stopped me randomly in the street to make passing comments. “Are those nails or are they claws?” one pointed in thinly-veiled horror a few months back. Even my mum once sent me several WhatsApp messages pleading with me to shorten them.

While this might seem shocking, perhaps the most surprising reaction has been the thinly veiled snobbery that my acrylics have elicited. The likes of Kylie Jenner, contestants in the latest series of Love Island and most notably, Cardi B, might have popularised acrylic nails to the masses in recent years. But less than favourable stereotypes of them have continued to persist. ‘Common’, ‘cheap’ and ‘tacky’ are just a few preconceptions that women like myself who wear them are often branded with. It’s these tropes I’ve found myself desperately trying to distance myself from since I started sporting acrylics last April. I’ve lost count of the number of times complete strangers have asked me how I get anything done, for one, or even how I wipe after going to the toilet. (The latter question is even the subject of a vlog watched by millions and countless articles online).

“‘Common’, ‘cheap’ and ‘tacky’ are just a few preconceptions that women like myself who wear them are often branded with. I’ve lost count of the number of times complete strangers have asked me how I wipe after going to the toilet”

Though earlier this year I might have laughed along, recently – and much to my frustration – I’ve increasingly internalised the negative reactions my talons have provoked. In recent months, I’ve felt the need to quickly reveal my profession as a journalist minutes after strangers dart shocked expressions at my nails. At times like these, I can’t shake off the urge to overcompensate and add that I have a Master’s degree or have won several writing awards in an effort to be taken more seriously.

Clearly I’m not the only one – a friend revealed that she once removed her acrylics before several job interviews. As she says: “I didn’t want potential employers to get the wrong impression of me or think I’m unprofessional.” One time when she couldn’t find time to remove them, she recalled having to “keep my hands tightly balled my fists the whole time in the hope that interviewers wouldn’t notice”.

It’s a predicament I can relate to. Much to my horror, I found myself recently telling a complete stranger that I only wear acrylics as it’s cured my trichotillomania, a lifelong hair-pulling condition I’ve been affected by since my mid-teens and something I wrote for Dazed Beauty earlier this year. There is a certain degree of truth to this. After all, soothing baths and deep breathing, both of which are NHS-recommended, have never quite had the staying power that fake nails have had for me. I haven’t pulled my hair in more than a year post-acrylics, a sentence that I never thought I could say a decade on from living with the disorder.

After all, most mornings pre-acrylics, I’d wake up with bald patches the size of 50p coins or empty gaps between my brows. At its worst, I’d tear my pubic hair when I’d run out of places to pull or there was none left on my scalp. But did I really need to reveal a condition that I’ve spent most of my mid-teens and adult life desperately trying to keep secret? I couldn’t even bring myself to tell my ex-boyfriend of five years, for one. I suspect it was just so this nameless stranger wouldn’t think ‘less’ of me once she knew my wearing acrylics wasn’t entirely a ‘choice’. It’s an incident that’s left me with a deep sense of discomfort.

Distancing myself from the ‘tacky’ stereotype that acrylics are long associated with does a disservice to the transformative impact they’ve had on my life. After all, acrylics have saved me from the painstaking ritual of applying several coats of bright red lipstick and kohl every morning to distract anyone from looking too closely at my lash-free eyelids. Long gone, too, are the seemingly well-meaning but hurtful comments from family and friends, the most memorable of which was the jibe: ‘How can you tell the difference between Salma and her identical twin? Salma doesn’t have eyelashes.’ Perhaps the most life-changing effect acrylics have had is that I look radically different than a decade ago. Namely, I have a full head of hair on my scalp, lashes and brows. Shouldn’t I then wear my acrylics with more pride?

Women downplaying why they wear acrylics might be more common than I previously thought. Fellow journalist Naomi* worked for a magazine targeted to residents from London’s wealthiest boroughs last year and cited bridesmaid’s duties for why she started wearing red acrylics. “At first, colleagues found it quite funny,” she tells me. “But there was a general consensus in the office that they hoped it’d be a one-off.” After continuing to wear them, she suspects it was a contributing factor for why she was later made redundant. “They’d suggested that I didn’t quite ‘belong’ or ‘fit in’, something I do feel my acrylics might have played a part in.”

I can’t help but feel it’s ironic that I – and countless other women – have continued to face such scrutiny for our nails when acrylics have arguably become as much of a staple of a British woman’s beauty routine in 2019 as contouring or a pre-holiday bikini wax. It’s not uncommon to see women on the average tube journey home, in the workplace or scrolling through my Instagram feed wearing them. Even a scene in the recent series of Top Boy sees character Lauryn liken her turquoise set to that of Cardi B’s. Getting an appointment at my local nail salon, too, has become as tough as getting a selfie in Santorini without being flanked by hordes of tourists.

And expenditure is only going to grow: British women booking nail treatments is expected to surpass £8 billion by 2021 according to Mintel figures. I only hope that as acrylic nails become more commonplace, the negative stereotypes that they’ve become associated with might soon be as passé as over plucked brows.

“I can’t help but feel it’s ironic that I – and countless other women – have continued to face such scrutiny for our nails when acrylics have arguably become as much of a staple of a British woman’s beauty routine in 2019 as contouring or a pre-holiday bikini wax”

Tellingly, though acrylics might be perceived as entirely associated with working class women, the prices – at least in London – certainly don’t reflect this. A fresh set can set me back as much as £45 and upwards for nail art and add-ons. Meanwhile, infills every two weeks can be up to £20. As a freelance writer, my income is often unsteady. Clearly, they could become an expense that working-class women like myself won’t be able to regularly upkeep as acrylics’ popularity – and inevitably, their prices – continue to rise. Surely if the demographics of the women who wear them have changed, so must the women associated with them should shift along with this?

It’s ironic, too, that the reception to WOC’s acrylics can radically differ from that of our white counterparts. Countless articles are dedicated to praising Kylie Jenner’s so-called ‘mani goals’ (whose nail length is identical to my recent set). Conversely, mine have continued to be demonised. Could my heritage impact how others – even unconsciously – have perceived my nails? 

Black women, for one, have long battled against the ‘ghetto’ trope that the likes of Jenner have never faced. Florence Griffiths-Joyner’s, perhaps the most prolific black woman to wear acrylics, success and athletic prowess was arguably sidelined by the negative rhetoric that surrounded her six-inch-long nails at the time of being named the fastest woman in the world at the 1988 Olympics. It’s exhausting that our choices as WoC come under significantly more judgment but our Caucasian counterparts don’t face identical struggles.

Snobbery – for now at least – might be as much an unwanted side-effect of wearing acrylics as having to book infills every two weeks. Even so, I’ve vowed to spend the remainder of the year resisting blaming wearing my acrylics on my hair-pulling disorder. For anyone that might dart one too many horrified glances at my nail length or a complete stranger marvels at how I can get anything done, I’ll let them make their own conclusions - ‘tacky’ or not.

Inch acrylic nails 5

You know what I think about a lot? What my life would be like if I could pull off Kylie Jenner–level acrylics. Like, sure, having 6-inch nails is an actual hazard if you’re a functioning human, but there’s something so damn inspo-worthy about her long-ass acrylics. Kylie aside, though, I’ve always wondered what it would be like to swap my short, weak nails for a sleek, long look that actually lasts. And that’s why I went ahead and found out everything there is to know about acrylics, including how long they should last, how much they cost, and how to care for them.

How long do acrylic nails last?

The biggest draw to acrylics? They’re a long-lasting, durable alternative to that traditional polish manicure that chips immediately after you leave the salon. A full set of acrylics—which are created by brushing a combo of liquid (monomer) and powder (polymer) onto your nails before shaping and air-drying them—should last six to eight weeks,but you’ll have to head to the salon every two to three weeks to fill in the growth.

This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

...can I make my acrylics last longer?

Even though your acrylics may not chip or break for weeks, you should still expect to schedule a fill-in appointment every two weeks to account for your nail growth. “Your natural nails grow out regardless of how long your acrylics last, and you’ll start to see growth at your cuticle beds after two weeks,” says Rita de Alencar Pinto, founder of Vanity Projects nail salon in New York City.

And because you can’t stop your body from doin’ its thing, you can only try to preserve your acrylics and keep them looking fresh and feeling healthy while you have them. An easy trick? Get agel manicure on top of your acrylics to keep your polish new and vibrant. “A polish manicure will inevitably have more wear and tear—even on top of an acrylic base—so I suggest getting a gel manicure if you want your acrylics to last longer,” says Pinto.

If you’d rather go the regular polish route, make sure you (1) use a high-quality nail polish that’s not going to chip and flake within a day and (2) lock it in with a clear top coat, which you can also use for touch-ups between fill-in appointments. You’ll also need to keep your nails and hands super moisturized to prevent breaks or cracks, so load up on cuticle oil throughout the day.

How often should you get a new set of acrylic nails?

As long as you take care of your acrylics—and head to your manicurist every two to three weeks for fill-ins—your set should last between six and eight weeks. Considering a full set of acrylics can get pretty pricey (in NYC, acrylics can range from $35 to $85 depending on where you go), you want to get a decent amount of wear for your $$, which is why taking care of them is so important.

How do I prep my nails for acrylics?

There’s only one thing to keep in mind when prepping your nails for acrylics: You should show up to your installation appointment with natural nails that are ~somewhat~ even. “Acrylics adhere better if you have even just a couple millimeters of natural nail growth,” says Pinto, adding that working with tiny, jagged nubs (shout-out to my fellow nail biters) isn’t ideal. You’ll want to grow out your nails even just a tiny bit prior to your appointment,” she says.

This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

Are gel extensions or acrylic nails better?

In recent years, acrylic nails have earned a little competition: Gel extensions are on the rise as a gentle, less invasive alternative to acrylics. Not only are they easier to apply and remove, but gel extensions are also much more flexible than acrylics, so it’s likely you’ll see less damage to your nail beds if you go the gel route.

Although acrylics and gel extensions look relatively the same, a number of salons (Vanity Projects included) favor gels. “It depends on personal preference, but generally, gel extensions are a more natural way of extending your nails with less impact on your natural nails,” says Pinto. “That said, acrylics are typically better for clients who are heavy-handed with their nails,”since they are more durable and adhere better to your nails.

If you aren’t sure which technique is best for your lifestyle, consult a nail technician, who can walk you through the pros and cons of both. Either way, it’s always a good idea to go into your appointment with realistic expectations—namely, that your acrylics aren’t going to last longer than two to three weeks and require a decent amount of care. But hey, if Kylie can do it, so can you! Right...?

‘Trashy’ mum slammed for baby’s manicure with people warning her inch-long nails could do SERIOUS damage

A MUM has been branded “trashy” after sharing a snap of her baby’s huge false nails online.

The offending photo was shared on Reddit where fellow parents were horrified at the length of the toddler’s talons.

A mum has been branded "trashy" after sharing a snap of her toddler's huge false talons online

The infant’s nails have been decorated with acrylic nails in a popular “ballerina” shape that are almost as long as the baby’s fingers themselves.

Each nail has been pain-steakingly decorated with gold glitter, diamantes or a Louis Vuitton logo.

Fellow Redditors were horrified by the tot’s style statement, sharing their outrage in the comments - but some suggested it could very well be photoshopped.

“I’m concerned this baby will poke her eye out,” said one concerned user.

This is how your child gets hurt

Redditor

“I didn’t realize what was wrong until I saw the hand,” agreed another, with a third writing, “No, just no.”

Another wrote: “This is how your child gets hurt.

“Has this person never been around an infant before? The poke and prod every hole and orifice on their body.”

However, many speculated whether the nails were stick on and the mum was just having “a bit of fun” in lockdown.

The video was shared on the subreddit r/Trashy.

The group has over 2 million members and is described as a place for "trashy stories, trashy glamour, all things fake, plastic and downright trashy."

In other parenting news, mums have been sharing funny memes of life in lockdown.

And this mum used her one-year-old daughter to recreate movie scenes… including some that are DEFINITELY not for kids.

Plus these parents pranked their kids by saying the tooth fairy can’t visit due to coronavirus but some said she’s an essential worker.

These 5 Inch Long TikTok Nails Proved Me I Can Do Anything With Acrylic Nails

The internet is a really strange place. I recently discovered a very specific genre of TikTok videos called “nails ASMR”.

If you haven’t heard of ASMR before, it means Autonomous meridian sensory response. People who experience ASMR are triggered by certain visual sensations, sounds, or cues. The result is often a tingling sensation around the neck and head, deep relaxation, and even an increased ability to fall asleep.

But it was this discovery that ultimately led me to @julesgotnailsand she showed me what I can do anything with acrylic nails.

Five-inch long nails? It is not a big thing.

@julesgotnails She regularly posts videos of her crazy long nails, but a recent video featured five-inch long nails that were bright green and purple. And in the video, he successfully tackles everyday things that would seem impossible with such long claws.

To open a car door, run your nails through the gap between the handle and the door. Then shoot normally like the rest of us do. It takes one more step, but it also seems like it would become second nature rather quickly.

When it comes to unlocking and opening a door, use your knuckles. She interlocks her fingers and uses her knuckles like the rest of us use our fingers. A bit uncomfortable? Sure. Realizable? Definitely!

We can begin to imagine how these strategies translate into all kinds of activities. His main technique? Get your nails out of the way and lean on your knuckles. What if @julesgotnails I can successfully live life with five inch long nails, I am pretty sure I can do it with normal length acrylics.

Strategies for life with long nails

I put my creativity to the test and started thinking of some strategies to help tackle anything and everything with long nails. This is what I came up with:

  • Open a can with a pen.
  • Write with your fingertips. Slower? Probably, but still possible!
  • Use tweezers to pick up small, loose objects.
  • Comb the hair with the sharp tips of your nails to separate the sections.
  • Use the back of your nails as a beauty product scoop.
  • Make two nails shorter to help put on the contacts.

So, go get those acrylic nails and live with confidence, beauty, and efficiency (well, sort of).
