Should I Charge Clients More for Color and Glitter Acrylics?

Colored Acrylic

Providing custom glitter and color acrylic creations is a specialty service; make sure you compensate yourself accordingly. I charge $3 per color, including the nail bed color or glitter. Adding gliter to a service doesn’t take up much more of your time than a standard acrylic service, so therefore you wouldn’t need to charge more if you base your pricing schedule only on service time. But you are spending more money on purchasing the color and glitter acrylics, so you’ll need to factor that into your pricing. Often a couple extra dollars per set is a reasonable price.
