Gel fill question...

Gel fill question...
0
0
I have a client coming tomorrow morning for a fill, but when I looked at my scheduler, I realized I haven't seen her for at least 6 weeks.

My question is:
How long do you let the new growth get before you're basically applying a new set of nails and it's not really a fill anymore?

I know this lady has amazing nails naturally, and she likely didn't notice too much, she basically gets the french tips since her natural nails discolour so easily - anyway... just wondering what you all think!

Thanks!

Most of my clients are on a 3 week schedule, I leave one week of wiggle room for their fill, so I usually just add $5 per week over 4 weeks. I have a couple of clients who will occasionally go 8 or 9 weeks between fills, and if they have anything broken (which doesn't usually happen with them) I charge for that as well.
Hope this helps. Smile

Do you just have one fill price? I do a basic fill at the cuticle for $35, but if they want new color at the ends it's a re-tip for $50 - if several of the nails are broken I charge for a new set.

I just have one fill price (for now anyway!) Most clients are pink and whites so far.

I will definitely need to re-visit this though.

The client yesterday was really great about things and her nails held up so well she didn't think it had been that long. She paid for a new full set anyway when she saw what I had to do (she's an esthetician, so she had an idea)

My last client of the day was a young girl though who I think is pretty rough on her nails - I totally need to re-evaluate my pricing based on what's going on with people. Most clients haven't had any issues.

I don't consider it a full set unless I am having to sculpt them out. Anything else I consider a fill. Everyone of mine changes color everytime and almost all of them get nail art, so I don't make as much as I could. Small, poor town though. Anyway, why would it be a full set if you aren't sculpting or putting tips on? I thought that was a full set.

I'm in a small town too!
This was a full set pretty much, by the time I'd prepped her nails, I wound up needing to basically do a p/w overlay.
The young gal, I had to put forms on 7 fingers.

We have a separate price per finger. I just always made sure my clients were aware of possible price increases the longer they went in between appts.

Fill (grown out nothing but a file & fill-in)
Repair (broken nail that can be saved or nail needing a form just not for length)
Extension (anything creating length)
Overlays (fresh nail without anything on it & not needing length)

this is in price increase increments of $.50 to $3 over the per nail fill price.
My clients always went between 3-6 weeks

Good luck Tongue

I would consider having to put 7 forms on a full set, for sure, unless I had done something wrong.
