Pardon the cliché but if you are after a quick fix for your beauty woes, there is, of course, an app for that. Leading nail color brand OPI has released a free mobile version of its Nail Studio program for iPhone users. The app allows OPI fans to try before they buy with a virtual manicure that compares your skin tone against over 200 OPI shades.
How does it work? Users can customize their screen hand to best match their skin tone, and then sample OPI’s huge range of colors on their virtual nails. OPI favorites like Lincoln Park After Dark (a midnight purple), Hot & Spicy (a punchy tangerine) and Over The Taupe (an on-trend beige/grey) are all ready to be tested on your virtual hands; if these colors don’t strike your fancy, you can search polishes by name to find your favorite.
OPI isn’t settling at on-screen manicures; in the next few months the brand plans to add a salon locator, as well as a “nail drawer” to store your favorite picks for future reference. Download the OPI Nail Studio app on Itunes for free.
