Adding Up the Extras [How You Can Make More Money on a Standard Service]

Simple things like UV top coat, extended massages, and nail art, can be offered as extras to standard manicures and pedicures for a small charge, and the small increase in revenue can really add up over time.

$9 Callus Removal Products

For extra thick calluses, you can offer a specialized callus removal product to help smooth out the roughest feet. Roula Nassar has a glycolic peel for thick-callused clients. She says of the service, “Glycolic is a more concentrated product and it’s extremely effective at naturally breaking down callus build-up.” Nassar charges $10 for the service, and says that clients love it because the product continues to exfoliate the skin for up to a week, leaving feet extra smooth.

$10 Paraffin Dip

Clients might be tempted to indulge in the warming sensation of a paraffin dip or heating mittens. The service could be offered as a special during the colder months of the year, and clients who really enjoy it may ask for it periodically year round. Cyndi Grohowski includes a paraffin dip free of charge in her deluxe spa manicures, but charges $10 if clients want to add it to a standard basic manicure.
