Nail Artists Guess The Cost Of Manicures


– [Xuan Bui] You have a hangnail, hon. – I do? – Oh my god – I have my kit in my car. I should roll it in,
you know, make it legit. I’ll save you. (upbeat music) – Hi, I’m Xuan Bui, also
known as nailbandit. – Hi, I’m Ambie, with ambies_nails_n_nugs. – I’m here today to guess
the manicure prices. – So, we’ll see how I do. I think I’ll do pretty good. (upbeat music) – So, I guess you’re here
today to see how much you think my manicure costs. – [Xuan] Mmmm, cute. I love it. – Oh, I love this design. – Good design, very bold and simple. – [Ambie] I love doing the two little dots – I was trying to go for
something simple yet edgy. – Yet minimalist. – Shape is good. Oh, so you have natural nails underneath. – Are these your natural nails, or we got little tips on there? They’re so cute. – This is like a gel manicure? – [Client] Mmm-hmm. – Soon to be due for a fill. – Yeah. Two weeks old. – Let’s say a full acrylic
set, probably charged you five or 10 for art, maybe. – I’m guessing like maybe you paid $50. – Yeah, it was 40 and
then I did a tip on top. But pretty accurate. – Ohh. – I’m gonna say 45. – That was perfect. – Yay. – So, it was 40 and then I just
did a five to 10 dollar tip. – Perfect! (upbeat music) – All right, so tell me what you think. – Oooh. – Okay, ooh la la. – Nice color, ooh. – We have some glitter, and
we have some foil, iridescent. Are these acrylic? – You must have acrylic on, overlay? (crickets chirping) Maybe, yeah, you do have. – (laughs) – It doesn’t feel natural. – But yeah, oh, gosh; see,
I don’t do dip powder, so I don’t know how much it costs. These are so cute! – You have manicure, for sure. – With the glitter and
with the foil, oh wait; we have rhinestones too. I forgot about those. – The design, I’m assuming, maybe $65? – I’m gonna say 40. – I did them myself. – What??? Surprise!!! – Are you a manicurist too? – No, I’m not. – So this is gel. – Uh, it’s actually not gel. – Regular polish? – It’s just regular polish. – It’s not gel on top? – No. – Oh, dang. (bell dinging) – You must watch a lot of YouTube. – I do. – Why pay that money when
you just put on your phone and then there you go. Do your stuff. – No, don’t tell them that. (upbeat music) – Look at your nails. Oh, I see you’re fierce. – You’ve got to be able
to stab an eye out. – You don’t want to mess with her. It looks like a chili pepper. – Beautiful. I love this color, like
this electric coral color. – It’s like a fun color. – Yeah. – Okay, so you have acrylic
on, with nail extension. – So these, I’m guessing, are acrylic. Okay, really good job, really nice length. – They’re also a couple of
weeks old now, as you can see. – Over a little over two weeks, no? The shape looks very good. I like it. – So these are like an acrylic set with just a gel color over it. So I would say around here, 50? – I would say it’s in between 40, 45. I mean, it can’t be no more
than 50 because that would just be too much. – That’s robbery. I paid, with tip, 40. – Oh, wow, that’s good. – Right? – That’s really good, yeah. – Ah, good job, whoever did it. Good job. – Beautiful work. – Thank you. I wish I could take that
credit for myself, but – – I know, right? (laughs) Me too. (laughs) (upbeat music) – Let me see those nails. – I’ve had them for like a week
now, so there’s a little bit of wear and tear. – That’s good colors. Are these over your natural nails. It looks like regular polish. You did this one yourself? – You can tell. – You can tell it’s very
natural, like you touch it. The nail polish is very
thin when it dries, so you can see everything. But you know, you did a good job. It’s fun, it’s cute, it’s popping. Look at that. If anything, re-file. – Refiling, okay, all right. Someday I will get there. – Practice. Great, that’s a wrap. – This was super fun. Thanks for having me. Again, I’m Ambie with ambies_nails_n_nugs. – Follow me on Instagram @nailbandit. And if you have any
questions, just send me a DM. – And that’s it. Thanks. (upbeat music)
