This question is difficult to answer without any information on the look you would like to achieve. There is so much more to acrylic nails than sticking the tip and slapping some product.
Although the cost of a set of nails is greatly affected by not only physical overheads, such as products and running (depending on location) a salon or travel costs (if mobile), you are also paying for the skill, expertise and creative flair of the Nail Technician.
Of course, the cost of white tip and clear product application will be much lower than intricate design created with colored product and hand-painted pattern (I don't mean a few flicks and three dots here).
As already stated, anything less than £ 25 for a new set should set off alarm bells - why is it so cheap? Where they are cutting corners? Are they using professional products? Are they still in training and need to get as much practice as possible?
It is not possible to charge £ 10 a set (even the most simple look), use high quality professional and safe products and cover overheads, let alone make any profit.
In this industry you do get what you pay for.

My prices start at £30 but it also depends on your area... beware of anyone charging less than £25 though, you get what you pay for!

Hello, my prices also start from £25. For twenty five pounds, you will get white tips and clear acrylic. prices start to increase when clients request pink and white acrylic and sculpted nails rather than tips. Be aware of people charging you less, they may not be qualified or use professional products. Stick with a tech who offers a well know acrylic brand. CND, NSI, Entity to name a few :) Hope this helps x

It really depends on your area but average is from £25. My prices start at £25-£30. Dont be pulked in by cheap prices though always make sure the tech is qualified.

My prices start at £25, but it depends on the area you live in and what Acrylics you want. But I would say you are looking at between £25- £50 for a good Nail Technician.
