Nail salons are one of the trickiest places when it comes to tipping. What if one person does your manicure and another person does your pedicure? Jin Soon, nail guru and owner of JINsoon Salon in New York City, recommended tipping 20-30%, especially since it is such a personal service. She also suggests that “You should give the full amount, whatever you want to give, and tell the manager, receptionist or your technician, to divide.  You can tell them something along the lines of ‘this many people took care of me, so please share,’ and they will split accordingly.”
