Mani-Pedi Prices Thru The Roof - 2020

Be aware. At least in New York. But maybe everywhere.  A manicure pedicure which may have cost $30-$40 in New York City can now cost $70 -$90. A pedicure alone can cost $40. I used to pay $31 for a mani and pedi in Manhattan.  Prices can be sky-high, through the roof.  And many shops are not telling their customers of the price increase until they come to pay.   One has to wonder if customers will come back to pay at those prices.   Many, like me, have perhaps got used to doing their own mani-pedis, or they have lost their jobs. And, for now, many are not seeing anyone anyway. Can these shops, of which there were too many, at least in Manhattan, stay in business?
(Of course, the image here shows fab fashion nails, they could be worth the extra money, but these are not the classic nails most people have.)
