    I usually tip 20%.  So if my mani is $25 I give 5.  But if I get a polish change and it’s only like $8 I tend to give her like $3 or $4.  I love my manicurist so I tend to tip her well.

    20% of the total. and I always tip a little bit extra for a pedicure because they had to touch my feet. 😉

    I live on 26th between 2nd and 3rd..there are two places on my block with those prices..one is crappy..the other one I got to is Niu Nails (its on the south side of the street)…Don’t expect anything like Bloomies or a ritzy place, but they do a great job..I got my nails for my wedding there and have gone weekly to them for years!  They do get busy though so I try to get there right when they open!

    I chose “under 5,” but what I meant was, $5 for mani, $5 for pedi… so it ends up being $10. I guess I voted wrong… lol.

    It totally depends on how great of a job they do. Every time I visit my Aunt in the U.S this little salon does both and waxing at an amazing price. I tip an extra 10 to 15 dollars most times 🙂

    20%, so it varies based on how much the place charges.

    I usally tip around $5 but if they do a great job and my wait wasn’t long, I tip a little more.
