    Spray tans and manicures: tipping?

    How much should you tip your manicurist? I got a manicure & ultra pedicure (includes foot massage) yesterday (I donít do this very often, as I canít afford it). The total cost was around $55, and I tipped $10. I had no idea how much to give her. Did I over or under tip, or do you think $10 was reasonable?

    Also Ė Iím scheduled for an airbrush tan this afternoon, at a cost of $15. Iím assuming I should tip the person who sprays me? This is another one of those things I just donít do very often, so I donít know. Does a $5 tip sound reasonable, high or low?

    Iím obviously clueless on this stuff, so I really appreciate your input!!!

    I think the tip for the nail salon was a good tip. I would not tip the tanning person. I am not sure if it is proper etiquette to do so or not. If you tipped all the people the manners books say you should, you would go broke!!
