Choosing the correct size for your press-on nails is very important to ensure a good fit. To determine your size, you will need a ruler or measuring tape (free printable rulers are available online), clear tape and marker.

Clear Tape Method 

  1. Starting with your thumb, place a piece of tape across your nail and press it into the left and right sidewalls.

  2. Draw a line along the widest part of the nail on each side.

  3. Remove the tape and place it on a flat surface.

  4. Measure the distance between the markings in millimeters.  1 line = 1 millimeter

  5. Record the measurements from thumb to pinky, and then use the sizing chart below to find the nail size for each finger.

  6. Finally, choose the size category for your nail set (extra small, small, medium, or large).

 

Measuring Tape Method  

  1. Hold the measuring tape at the widest part of your nail and measure horizontally from one side to the other.

  2. Record the measurements in millimeters.  1 line = 1 millimeter

  3. Record the measurements from thumb to pinky, and then use the sizing chart below to find the nail size for each finger.

  4. Finally, choose the size category for your nail set (extra small, small, medium, or large).

                         

 

If measuring for size is too much work, skip it and purchase a Sizing Kit. Our Sizing Kit includes 10 nails (sizes 0 - 9) in your chosen shape. We highly recommend purchasing a sizing kit to ensure a perfect fit.
