I’m a nails person. I love having them done and doing them myself, and you’ll always see my nails painted. Last week I got my first gel manicure and so far I’m liking it. Although, I wish I would have had my manicurist do some fall nails instead of the sheer color I went with. I am in full on fall mode, from my wardrobe and nails, to my home and food. Are you with me?
Have you ever seen a nail color and wondered, would that look good on me? My daughter and I love to stand in nail polish aisle at our favorite store and look at all of the colors. But I’m always curious if the color will be too dark or too pink or…you get the idea. Well, now there’s a way to “try on” your nail color thanks to the #1-selling nail color and nail care brand in the US, Sally Hansen!
Sally Hansen’s ManiMatch App
How does it work? You simply scan your hand from any smartphone and you can instantly curate your own color choices. That means you can choose from over 200 Sally Hansen nail polish shades in real time, on your nails, before you purchase! Not only that, but it generates personalized colors for you based on your skin tone. If you want to know what fall nails and shades will be flattering for you, you got it with the push of a button.
“The innovative technology uses bespoke skin tone analysis and an algorithm to map the hand.” – says Kristen D’Arcy, Global Digital Vice President. “It tracks the individual nuances of the user’s hands, analyzes skin tone, finds the nail beds, and photo-realistically simulates our nail polish shades, with shine: the finished manicure appears instantly on the user’s hand. ManiMatchTM generates shade suggestions across all Sally Hansen’s product lines, including Miracle Gel, Complete Salon Manicure, Insta-Dri and Xtreme Wear, so users can easily navigate and experience every color they desire.”
Here’s the gorgeous Julianne Hough recently trying out the app.
