Nail Shape and Sizing Guide
Measuring your nails correctly ensures that you get the perfect fit to make your nails look as close to a salon full set as possible. It is easy if you follow the instructions below. Message or e-mail us if you need help.
Soft Tape Measure: Hold the measuring tape or ruler horizontally across the widest point of your natural nail. Make sure you use the millimeter side, and not the inches side. If you're in between lines, round up to the next line. If you have flatter nail beds, add 1mm/1.0cm to your measurements(for very flat nail beds add 2!)
- Make sure to measure ALL TEN fingers. It’s common to have different measurements on each hand.
- An average thumb usually measures anywhere from 16mm to 18mm.
Hard Ruler: Place Scotch tape around the widest part of your nails and use a pen to mark your side walls. Remove the tape and lay it on a flat surface to measure with a ruler.
If you don't have a way to measure your nails you can use this online ruler or you can select FULL SET at checkout to get all of the sizes available.
The most common nail sizes are below in order from thumb to pinky finger.
- XS (3, 6, 5, 7, 9 )
SMALL ( 2, 5, 4, 6, 9)
MEDIUM (1, 5, 4, 6, 8)
- LARGE (0, 4, 3,5, 7)
If you require custom sizes that don't follow the common nail sizes above, please select "Custom" at checkout and add your sizes to the notes in your order.
Occasionally we will run out of a nail shape and use a different to nail replace it. This may cut the nail size number off at the tip of the nail and we will let you know which numbers the nails are.
