    gel nails?
    acrylic tips with electric file?
    acrylic tips with hand filing?
    acrylic sculptures with electric file?
    acrylic sculptures with hand filing?
    acrylic p&w sculptures?
    gel backfill/rebalance?
    acryilic backfill/rebalance with electric file?
    acrylic backfill/rebalance with hand filing?
    silk/fiberglass overlays?

    I don't do gel in my salon

    one hour, thirty minutes.

    two hours.

    two hours, 15 minutes.

    two and a half hours for natural sculpts.

    nearly three hours

    n/a

    one hour, 15 minutes.

    one hour, and 30 to 45 minutes.

    I have to guesstimate one and a half hours.

    With a great massage, one hour.

    All of them under 1 hour.
    I rarely do silk/fiberglass overlays

    it varies a bit with different clients, depending on what their nails are like.

    I always allow 2 hours for enhancements. Am trying to get to grips with sculpting gel pink and white.... this is taking 3 hrs... but it's a completely different technique than I've done before.. different than l&p sculpting. Need MORE one to ones!!!
    Don't use electric file.
    One of my trainers put a set on me and it took her 3 hrs and she didn't bat an eye lid.
    another trainer I spoke to about timing said she NEVER does a set in less than 2 hrs.
    Manicures I still book out at over an hour, I just like to make sure I can make a difference even with the most challenging nails!!
    People get a lot for thier money with me I think!! xx

    Sorry to be a cynic, but i'd like to see the end result, I been doing nails for over 20 years and an hour is a hard push for most to do a "QUALITY" set in under an hour, but i will gladly put a sequin border around my superman cape and hand it over if and when proven otherwise.

    Takes me 2 hours to do a full set (using tips) and 90 minutes for a rebalance, however, that 90 minutes is subject to change depending on the state of the nails they come back with lol

    i have looked at geeks times and they are about the same time as mine. I thought i was to slow and needed to speed up because sometimes i get calls can you do nails in an hour? NO. When i look at everyone elses times i am about average so i am pleased with that.

    I was going to have ago at sculpturing because i thought this might save me time but i have noticed some of yours times can increase by 30 mins.

    I book an hour for all full sets, some clients could take an extra ten mins. or so, backfills take about an hour as well depending on the state of the nails. Mani's take 1/2 hour. A delux mani I book 45 mins. That includes a longer massage and a paraffin dip.

    to do plain gels with tips it usually takes me around the 1 hr and 15 mins
    french gel with tips 1 hr and 30 mins
    plain acrylic/tips 1 hr and 30 mins
    french acrylic with tips 1 hr and 45-2 hrs

    if its just a nno i can usually take around 10-15 mins off i suppose.. i remember not too long ago when it took me around the 3-4 hour mark to do a full set and they would fall off now they are staying on and my timing is down. very pleased. i have seen people do full sets in an hour and they are fantastic and stay on and refills in 40 mins and they stay on too so its not impossible but im not aiming for that. :) im very happy with how long it takes me
