Once you have decided on setting up a press-on nails business, there will be many tasks that you would have to look into. However, the most important part of the job is providing the clients with the right nail size chart or a nail sizing guide. This will be the first thing that the clients would refer to when they buy press-on nails from you. This chart should include the measurement of different nail sizes, and also the type of nail shapes and lengths that would be offered by your business. Creating a nail sizing chart can be quite difficult, not to mention time taking. Rather than creating a nail size guide from scratch, you can use a nail sizing chart template like the one below.

What Makes a Good Nail Sizing Chart?

In the nails business, sizing is everything. While it is important to provide a variety of press-on nails with varying nail art designs, it is equally important to make sure that the size chart is a comprehensive one. The addition of just a few important details can markedly improve the quality of a nail sizing chart. The point of adding a nail sizing chart is lost if the client is not able to use it for choosing the correct press-on nails that would fit their natural nails.

A good nail sizing chart should include a few basic things –

1. Picture of Nails with Measurements in Millimeters

You should include a size chart that shows the picture of nails with the exact measurement in millimeters. This gives a realistic view to the clients about how the press-on nails would fit their nails. The following nail sizing chart templates illustrate this example very well –

It shows the images of nail sizes 0 to 9, with the measurements of each nail size placed in the middle of the nails. The nail sizes are perfectly placed below the measurements so that the client is able to determine their nail size easily. When the client follows the instructions for measuring the nails, they will get a millimeter number on their measuring tape. This can then be matched with the sizing chart given by you to find the correct nail size.

This can be understood with the help of an example. If a client wants to measure the nail size of their ring finger, they would first use a measuring tape to measure the nail width. If it comes to 13mm, they would understand that the nail size that corresponds to that is 4. In this way, they will be able to determine the nail size for all their fingers, from the pinky to the thumb, to order the correct nail set. If a client comes with a 13.5 mm measurement, you can advise them to go with the lower nail size, i.e., 3 rather than 4. This is important since it is always better to have a size larger than their nails.

2. Include the Standard Sizes

It is also important that the nail sizing chart includes the standard sizes or the list of nail sizes of an average person. It is possible that these standard sizes would not fit your clients’ nails every time, so it is important that an option of custom sizes is included too. Here are some great nail sizing chart template examples that include the standard sizes and also an option for custom nail sizing.

3. Instructions for Measuring Nails

A good nail sizing chart should also include a ‘How to Measure’ section, which explains how the client can go about measuring their nails. These instructions should be easy to read and in simple language. The instructions in the nail sizing guide should specify what the client would need to measure the nails (measuring tape), and the part of the nail they would have to measure. Measurement of nails is done around the widest part of nails. Here are some great examples of nail sizing chart templates that include all these points.

4. Nail Shapes and Sizes

If you want to go one step further, you can consider including a nail sizing chart template that provides sizes of different kinds of nail shapes and lengths. The popular nail shapes for press-on nails consist of Almond, Oval, Coffin, Stiletto, and Square. When it comes to nail length, clients are usually provided with the option of short, medium, medium-long, long, extra-long, and tapered. For short press-on nails, only oval and square shapes are made available, while medium-long nails are perfect for Coffin shape. The extra-long nails only come with a Stiletto shape.

Getting the Sizing Correct for the Press-on Nails

Now that you have some great templates for a nail sizing chart, the next step is to ensure that you get the sizing of the press on nails right. When you purchase full cover nails from a supplier, it usually comes with numbers (0 to 9). These numbers represent the nail sizes. If you are opening a nail business, it is important to know that –

  • Nail sizes for thumbs are between 0 and 3.
  • Nail sizes for index fingers are between 3 and 7.
  • Nail sizes for middle fingers are between 2 and 6.
  • Nail sizes for ring fingers are between 4 and 7.
  • Nail sizes for pink fingers are between 6 and 9.

These are the standard sizes that are based on the general sizing of an average person. In the industry, they are also known as preset sizes. If these sizes do not work for your client, you can always make custom press-on nails for them according to the measurements they provide.

Customizing Press-on Nails for the Client

For customizing the nails for the clients, you would need to measure the nails and file them down according to the sizing details provided by the client.

  • Measuring process when using a regular ruler: If you are using a regular ruler, the first thing you would need to do is place a piece of tape on the ruler. Mark the measurements given by the client. Remove the tape and place it on the press-on nail of the nearest size (larger than the measurement). Mark the width of the nail and file it down to prepare the custom nail.
  • Measuring process with a measuring tape: When you are using a fabric ruler/measuring tape, you can just lay the tape across the surface of the press-on nail, on the widest part. You can then mark the measurements given by the client to customize the press-on nails according to their needs.
