Over $30 easily. Though, I do the mani/pedi combo, so it's around $50. I'm a perfecionist, so my nails have to look good. But I don't trust salons so I have my own tools & polish and bring it with me.

I do my own nails at home. It's cheap, and for a germphobe like me it feels safer.

I took a cosmetology class and nail tech. I know how to do all that stuff myself. I give myself a manicure every week.

i've never had a mani or a pedi, even for high school dances! i can't believe it! if i could go back, i'd definitely do it. my friend wants to take me for my first next week. i just fear that it's a nice chunk of change that i could spend on something i'd enjoy more, like clothes or coffee haha. or, ya know, save it for tuition. plus, my nails look fab when i let them grow out...i've always had them short for sports though!

I do my own at home. I've never had a manicure but I wouldn't be opposed to it for a treat. Maybe the hubby will do that for me.

I inherited the ability to grow long nails, so I have never understood the act of gluing fake ones on. And as far as manis, doing my own are therapeutic (and also forces me to sit still)!

I'd spend $15 to $30, it's worth it and those people doing nails do deserve to get that kind of money each day.

A pedicure is worth $25+, but for a manicure? No more than $15 is my rule, I just got a mani-pedi yesterday for $20 bucks and they look wonderful. I feel like it all depends on how blessed you were with your nails, some people are really good at up-keeping their own nails... others are not, and therefore always spend on mani+pedis, I can go either way, my at home pedicures just give me a backache but when i do them at home they look pretty darn good ;)

I do my own most of the time, but when I do go for a mani/pedi, I happily pay more to go to a clean-looking place. I have friends who go to the icky places for cheap, but I just can't do it. Ick.

When I lived in NYC I would get a mani for 9-12 bucks! Now that I live in Ohio they are all 16-20. It's killing me to pay $20 for a mediocre manicure.

I got a french manicure done a couple of weeks ago for an event and it cost me €28. I almost had to be resuscitated!!:o

i'm all for pedicures. i think it is healthy for your toenails. mine always grow better and look nicer after two pedis.

For me, it's faster, more relaxing and easier to have someone else do it plus a professional pedi normally last me 3-4 weeks. It's great not having to worry about wearing flip flops or sandals. I also walk 12-15 miles/week and do pilates and yoga so the pedi is my treat for my feet.

I have actually never had a mani or pedi. Can you believe it?! I guess my reasoning has always been that sports keeps me from caring too much about how my nails look.

i go to the nail place for pedis- the spa a couple times a year for the pampering and the cheapie place more often for the polish. as for manicures- i'm not very good with keeping them good so i rarely go- a few times a year when i have an occasion, so then i usually spend like 15 or 20 bucks on it!

I like my nails short, and darker in the winter- pinkish/corals in the summer and I can do that on my own. But a pedicure- oh thats just wonnnnderful. :)

A waste of money - do it yourself!

I would love to be able to get a manicure but my nail beds are soooo sensitive I can't even use clipper and they're sore after filing. I got acrylics once for a wedding (bride forced me to) and I could hardly use my hands for a day! My nails hurt just thinking about it!!!
