Over the past couple years, I’ve been pitched numerous times about new mobile apps for nail polish fanatics and they have always been solely for iPhone/iPad users. Since I don’t recommend anything I can’t personally test myself, I haven’t posted about them, until now.
What’s unique about this free app is the “Match A Color” functionality. You simply take a picture of an object, click on a spot you want to color match, and get a list of China Glaze nail polish suggestions.
I took a picture of the Bobbi Brown Navy nail polish I posted earlier today and Man Hunt and First Mate are great alternatives, though not dupes. Lighting definitely alters the suggestions you get.
The app also features the latest collection releases, videos and a “Try It On” feature that is, honestly, not that accurate as all the shades look like cremes. You can also “favorite” shades and share your finds on social media.
Have you tried the app? Do you have a fave app geared toward nail polish fans?
So the past few of days have been a bit nerve-wracking. I spilled water on my laptop and have been in full freak-out mode, hoping it would turn on. Obviously it did, thanks to advice from the Twitterverse, and I have some fun news to share.
My local Nordstrom at Beachwood Place, is hosting a Pretty Party next weekend and they’ve asked me to be a part of their “Wake Up Pretty” trend event next Saturday, October 19th! I’ll be presenting, along with speakers covering makeup and skin care, talking about nail color trends for Fall and Holiday 2013. So exciting!
If you’re free next Saturday and would like to attend, there are 40 tickets left (out of 200). The event begins at 8:30 am (early, I know!) and your $20 ticket is redeemable for $20 worth of product PLUS you get an iPad case, a signature tote bag filled with a bundle of cosmetics and light refreshments will be served. If that’s not a reason to get up early on a Saturday, I don’t know what is.
After the event, manicurists will be on hand to apply any nail color purchases you make.
To purchase a ticket, stop by the Nordstrom Beachwood Place Beauty Department or call 216-378-2121.
If you can’t make it to the Wake Up Pretty event, the Pretty Party takes place all day on Friday (10/18) and Saturday (10/19). Beauty insiders and experts will be sharing the latest beauty tips and tricks while they pamper you with a complimentary makeup or skincare consultation. Get access to free customized samples and exclusive gifts with purchase (while supply lasts).
So come see me to hear about all the new colors and products for the season and meet other beauty aficionados, like yourself.
Calling all Cleveland nail fanatics! I’m hosting a nail trend event at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beachwood Place and I would LOVE to meet you. We’ll be talking Fall 2013 nail trends, sipping bubbly and more!
I’ve been so lucky to meet some amazing people in Cleveland thanks to blogging and social media but I know there are more of you out there that love nail polish as much as I do. Let’s build up the Cleveland nail community and have some fun at Saks.
Reserve some time on Saturday, September 28th to drop by the Saks Beauty Department and come say hello.
How many of you are fellow Clevelanders or live nearby? Will I see you next Saturday? I look forward to meeting you all.
Me!! Oh my gosh, you guys. Thank you so much for the love and support over the years. I adore you all.
I’m overwhelmed to be voted Favorite Nail Blogger in the first ever Marie Claire Most Wanted Beauty Awards and, as cliche as it sounds, I was thrilled just to be nominated by the MC beauty editors.
I was up against so stiff competition so if it wasn’t for all of you, I never would have won so THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
The rest of the winners are up on MarieClaire.com/MostWanted2013 and in the October 2013 issue (with Vanessa Hudgens on the cover), on stands now. I snagged a copy at Target on Sunday (picking up some #PhillipLimforTarget goodies). Am I total dork for wanting to buy a backup?
