HOW TO SIZE YOUR NAILS
Take a piece of tape and wrap it horizontally across the widest part of your nail. Make sure the tape lays flat and hugs the nail really well, from side to side. Use your finger to push the tape into your sidewalls to help hold it in place.
Use a Pen to mark the sides of your nail. This will measure your custom nail size.
Remove tape and stick it onto your strip of paper.
REPEAT STEPS ABOVE ON ALL 10 fingers.
Label each measurement to keep track as you go along using a ruler or measuring tape, measure using mm for sizing each nail size and write it down.
Enter the numbers separated with a comma, into the appropriate section on your product page/cart.
Measuring your nails correctly is the most important step, please take the time watch our videos. We create your nails based on the sizes you provide us. If you follow the steps your nails will fit perfectly.
Be sure to use the CM side of your ruler/measuring tape and provide us with your measurements in MM
Only measure your nails BARE. Please do not measure your nails while wearing Gel or Shellac or other nail coatings. This will also affect your measurements.

HOW TO APPLY YOUR NAILS w/ GEL TABS
Complete your prep steps
Find the best fitted glue tab for each nail. Remove one and place it on a nail, getting as close to the cuticle as you can. This will decrease the chances of lifting. hold and press it into place for 10 seconds, ensuring it's flat and bubble-free. do not remove the plastic film yet. Repeat on all 10 nails.
Keep your press refresh set organized by size. Begin working from your pinky nail 1st. This will make removing the glue-tab-film easier. Remove the plastic film from your pinky nail. Starting at the cuticle area, angle the press refresh nail down slowly and hold the nail in place firmly, for 10 seconds. repeat this with the rest of your nails, one-by-one.
