How to Measure your Nails (3 Simple Methods)

Method 1: Using soft ruler

How to Measure your Nails Method 1: Using soft ruler
Step 1. Measure your nails at the widest part with a tape measure. 
Step 2. Write down your measurement in millimeters and do this for all 10 nails. You can measure nail width size in Centimeters and convert into millimeters for easy measuring.
Step 3. Align your measurements with the corresponding nail sizes on the chart. For instance, a width of 15mm corresponds to Size 1. If the nail width doesn’t align with the chart, please specify the exact width (in millimeters) in the “Personalize” section when selecting your size.
(No decimal please. Example: if your size appears to be 15.5mm, round it up to 16mm)

Method 2: No Soft Ruler? No Problem!

If you’re without a soft ruler, grab a regular one and follow these steps: 
How to Measure your Nails Method 2 using hard ruler
Step 1: Place a strip of tape over your nail, making sure it’s smooth and crease-free. Press down the tape on the nail’s sides to get the most accurate width.
Step 2: Using a marker or pen, make a mark on each side of the tape where it meets your nail’s side walls. You’ll want to measure the widest part of your nail.
Step 3: Gently remove the tape and lay it on a flat surface. Measure the distance between your marks with the ruler. If your measurement falls between two lines, round up to the nearest one.
Step 4: Repeat these steps for each nail, from your thumb to your pinky. Jot down all your measurements – they’re super important for ordering. And if you’re stuck or need a hand, just give us a shout – we’re here to help!

Method 3: Bill Snapshot Method

Don’t have a ruler? No worries! Try our Bill Snapshot Method:

Step 1: Set the Scene Place your hand flat on a table with your natural nails visible. Position a US dollar bill alongside your fingers. 

Step 2: Perfect Shot Take a top-down photo (bird’s eye view) of your fingers and the bill, making sure to capture two corners of the bill in the frame. 

Step 3: Focus on the Thumb Follow the same process for your thumb, keeping it flat on the table. 

Step 4: Other Hand Too Repeat for your other hand, as there can be slight size differences between hands. 

Step 5: Send & Notify Email the pictures to Remember to mention in the “Personalize” section of your order that you’ve sent the photos.
