Sally Hansen’s ManiMatch App Takes the Guesswork Out of Polish Selection

Choosing the perfect shade to paint your nails can be somewhat overwhelming. You can’t always tell what a particular shade is going to look like until you dab some on. And with the gazillion of color options available at salons or drugstores, the task of finding the right hue to suit your skin tone, your mood or your outfit is made that much more difficult. There are too many options, yet so few fingernails available to try them on.

Sally Hansen has solved this quandary with its new ManiMatch mobile app. The app allows you to try on a virtual rainbow of over 200 Sally Hansen polish shades on your nails before you buy. A simple scan of your hand from your smartphone enables you to instantly view your color choices. And with its personalized skin tone color suggestions, the app senses and analyzes the pigments in your hand, then matches its polish shades to the ones that best flatter your complexion, so there’s no guesswork involved. There’s no uploading, picture taking or manual data entry involved as the app works in real time. And with the process so easy, we guarantee you’ll end up experimenting with shades you’d never normally try.

To kick off the app’s launch, Sally Hansen has opened up a pop-up shop in New York City this weekend. Stop by the SoHo spot at 120 Wooster Street to try out virtual manis at a polish-dispensing kiosk or sit down for a free mani with one of the manicurists on hand.

Sienna Miller Gives Marie Claire Its Best Cover of the Year (Forum Buzz)

Marie Claire gave Miley Cyrus a makeover to remember for its September cover. Now, as we move on to October, the American title serves up actress Sienna Miller, who currently fronts U.K. Vogue‘s October edition as well. Sienna was shot by photographer Txema Yeste and, to our delight, looks terrific wearing an eye-catching creation from Louis Vuitton.

Members of our forums were left pleasantly surprised. “Sienna somehow made the styling work!? I’m by no means a fan of her’s,” confessed Cosmic Voices.

Also fond of Sienna’s presence was RanThe: “I love this cover! I don’t really like Sienna but she’s bringing fashion to Marie Claire which is a boring magazine month after month!”

“I love it. Is MC trying a different look? This doesn’t feel like a typical cover for them,” shared MyNameIs.

Miss Dalloway was also quick to declare, “One of the best covers they have had, in a very long time!”

Sharing the same attitude was Benn98. “Love it!! Their covers for 2015 have actually been looking pretty good. I see there’s a new re-design as well. Sienna looks great, and brings a lot of much-needed fashion drama to this cover,” he applauded.

“I like this a lot. I agree that she makes the styling work, even that hairpiece…” acknowledged kokobombon.
