AR Nail Polish Apps

'Wanna Nail' Lets Users Try Nail Polish Using Augmented Reality

— June 13, 2018 — Fashion
Augmented reality apps give users a risk-free way to see how outlandish styles might look in reality, and Wanna Nails is an app that does just that. The augmented reality system lets users test out different manicures through their smartphone cameras, giving them an idea of what to wear when it comes time to actually apply the shellac.

While Wanna Nails is certainly a fun app to play around with, it goes beyond just testing out different colors on one's hands using augmented reality. The app sources its colors from the top sellers on Amazon and AliExpress, and it gives users the option of making purchases directly through the app. Further, it connects directly to Instagram and lets users make polls of options, increasing their confidence in the purchase decisions they make later.
