Manicurists rely primarily on tips, not wages, especially if they work at a salon. That's why it is so important to tip your manicurist fairly. This means around 15% for a standard job and around 20% for a manicurist who did an excellent job on your nails. Regular customers can tip their manicurist up to 25%. Of course, you should also tip more during the holidays, when manicurists have many clients and would rather be home with their families than doing your nails. If you do not believe in tipping manicurists, you are better off staying at home and doing your own nails.
