Measuring Your Nails

Measuring Your Nails

Measuring your nails may sound like a difficult thing to do, but with this method, it's so easy you could almost do it with your eyes shut!  Just follow the two easy steps below...

Stick a small piece of washi or masking tape across the width of your nail, making sure it's not wonky.  Use a pen to mark the tape at the sides of your nails.  Stick the tape to some paper and use a ruler to measure between the marks in mm.  Make a note of it and then do the other fingers.

Once you have your measurements, take a look at the chart below to find your perfect size match.  
Extra Small Widths - 14.5mm, 10mm, 11mm, 10mm, 9mm.  Small Widths - 15mm, 11mm, 12mm, 10mm, 9mm.  Medium Widths - 16mm, 12mm, 13mm, 11mm, 10mm.  Large Widths - 17mm, 13mm, 14mm, 12mm, 11mm.  Extra Large Widths - 17.5mm, 14mm, 15mm, 13mm, 12mm.   These are the exact measurements for my XS-XL width options.  If your nails don't match up to these options, just select "Custom" as your width and write your measurements in the personalisation box.  If you don't want to measure your natural nails, then choose "All Sizes x20" and you'll get every width available.

*Quick tip - if you got some biro on your nails when you marked the tape, nail polish remover will take it off.
