shapes & sizing
At The Holy Nail we offer a wide selection of shapes and sizes to choose from to achieve your perfect style and fit.
The nail shapes offered are shown here in the nail shape guide.
Each shape is set in length and will look roughly the same as what you see in the nail shape guide, this may vary slightly depending on the length of your natural nail bed. (When selecting your nail size this refers to the width of your natural nails, not the length of the false nails), please see the guide for an idea of how the length and shape will look on your hand.
If you would like any of these shapes altered such as shortened please get in touch and leave a message with your order at the checkout with any specifications. We will try our best to make these happen.
To give you an idea of lengths, lengths are:
Short to Mid Length
Mid Length to Long
- Sculpted Coffin
Sculpted nails have a deep C Curve and sit tighter on the nail.
Long & Extra Long
- Long Coffin
- Long Almond
- Long Stiletto
- XL Sculpted Coffin
- XL Square
Some shapes are a little more narrow than others particularly our Rounded shape. For this reason we do not include size Extra Large in the shape Rounded and the sizes are altered to one number bigger for each nail to accommodate. Please bare this in mind before purchasing Rounded, if you are likely to want this shape it is highly advised to purchase a Sample Sizing Kit with the Rounded size before purchasing.
The standard sets include 10 nails in sizes:
X Small, Small, Medium, Large or X Large.
We also offer full sets of 24 mixed sizes, these are perfect for gifts, if you are unsure which size to select or if you would like spare nails. These sets include: 2x nail sizes 0 to 9 and an additional 2x size 5 & 6 so you are guaranteed to find your perfect fit.
Toe nails are offered in a box of 24 mixed sized nails to ensure you find your perfect fit and have spares.
Measuring Your Nails
For your first set we highly recommend purchasing a Sample Sizing Kit that includes 10 blank numbered nails for you to test the size and shape before you buy. Some shapes differ slightly so please choose the shape you are likely to purchase for your main set to get the most accurate sizing.
We also offer full sets of 24 mixed sizes, the nails are numbered beneath the tip so you can make a note of your size.
You can also measure your nails yourself using a tape measure. Please see the sizing graphic for more information on measurements.
