With the rise of smartphones, it makes sense for us polishaholics to develop and download apps that do everything. There are apps that show us what different colors will look like on our hands, inspiration and instructions for nail art, and tracking the nail polish colors you want and own! The Pedicure Team have researched a few of our favorite polish apps (for both iPhone and Android phones) that we think you will love!
Track Your Lacquer – iPhone and Android
This fabulous app allows you to keep track of the nail polish colors you like and lets you mark the colors you own and the colors that you want (it even recommends similar colors in case you cannot find the exact color you want).
The app isn’t on the Apple or Android store so you have to follow the instructions on the app’s website to install it on your smartphone.
Virtual Nail Salon by Modiface – iPhone and Android
This app gives you a virtual manicure- all you have to do is upload a picture of your hand and it lets you try on hundreds of different nail polish colors and styles.
Available on the US Apple Store and Google Play App Store
Nail Designs – iPhone only
This app is great for giving simple step-by-step tutorials for flawless manicures! The manicure designs are categorised into packs of 20 where each has an individual theme, and with approx. 1290 total designs there is something for everybody!
Available from the App Store
Nail Polish Rack – Android
This app lets you catalogue your nail polish collection so you will never accidentally buy the same one again! You can rate your current polishes and catalogue them into different colors and brands. There is also a ‘Barcode’ function so you can scan polishes into your collection and your wishlist. Perfect for hardcore polish addicts!
