Swarovski Crystal Sizes for Nails

By canadanails

We are often asked about our favorite Swarovski Crystal sizes and that’s a tough question to answer because we love Swarovski so much and just want to answer by saying all of them!  For Swarovski Flatback round shapes we sell them as small as 3ss and all the way up to 30ss. So to help with this question Susan did these nails as an example to show you the sizes compared to a nail for reference. The nails are all a size 2 nail. Please see picture above.

Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks by size

Crystal Size  Measurement
3SS 1.4mm 
5SS 1.8mm 
7SS 2.15mm
9SS 2.65mm
12SS 3.1mm
16SS 3.9mm
20SS 4.7mm
30SS 6.41mm









If you are unsure about sizing, the Multipacks are a great place to start. They contain 3 popular sizes: 5ss, 7ss and 9ss and are available in over 100 colors to choose from. We have made shopping so much easier on our new website! Now you can view Swarovski Crystals for nails by Size or by Color.

We’ve covered rounds but now let’s talk shapes - Canada Nail Supplies currently carries 26 shapes in Swarovski Fancy Flatbacks and rest assured will carry more as soon as Swarovski brings out more. 😉 I know you might be thinking we may have an addiction and it’s true, we do! We can’t get enough of Swarovski!

Below is a chart for the different shapes and sizes they come in to help you narrow down your choice.  If you are just starting out and want to start with something small I recommend the small Swarovski Raindrop which is 1.7mm wide and 6mm long. If you really want to bling it up with lots of sparkle, then there are many to choose from.  And again, if you are unsure where to start, we have an assorted shapes tray with Crystal and Crystal AB Shapes.
