Why are fake nails so expensive to get done?
It’s a mixture of product, time, experience and not to mention many salons have to pay rent for their salon and in some cases the nail techs have to pay a certain amount of money a month to have a station in the salon. It all varies by salon but then there’s also the cost of insurance, utilities etc that can influence the cost of a set of nails.
Fake nails are expensive because you are paying for their time, training, products, and overhead. They pay to rent their station or location, for their licensing, and the school they went to. Artificial nails are inexpensive when you think about the time they spent learning how to do it.
