Hi All,

I hope you can help me!! I am doing my VTCT at college at the mo and just got some homework to do......
I need to find the coomercially accepted times for nail treatments.
I have walked round Winchester and Salisbury and have manged to get a good handful of times from these salons but was hoping for a more national input too!
So if you could spare me 5 mins, please can you tell me your times for completing:-

Full Set Acrylic
Full Set Gel
Full Set Fibre Glass
Rebalance
Infills
Full Soak Off
1 Nail Repair
Basic Nail Art
Airbrushing

If you have a website please put that on too so I can print you out!!
Thank you very much in advance

:)

Hope this helps but I was a hell of a lot slower at first, these times are after over 4 years. I still maintain you ought to concentrate on doing a fab job, that is what they are taking with them after all. Your times will improve as you get more experienced xx

*~*~*
Full Set Acrylic - 50 minutes
Full Set Gel - 50 minutes
Full Set Fibre Glass - n/a
Rebalance - 40 minutes
Infills - always rebalance
Full Soak Off - less than 30 minutes
1 Nail Repair - 10 minutes
Basic Nail Art - 5 - 15 minutes
Airbrushing - 5 - 30 minutes


The time above are just average. If the clients want long nails add 10 - 15 minutes, if short nails minus 10 minutes. If I feel like talking that day add 15 minutes. If the nail plate is in a bad condition, add 10 - 15 minutes. HTH's!!
