Track the nail polish colors you own and want using your iPhone or smartphone.
Have you ever been out shopping and couldn't remember the name of a nail polish color you were looking for? Couldn't remember if you already own a color you see? Maybe they don't have the color you want and you need an alternative?
This handy HTML5 app can be installed on any smartphone—including the iPhone and Android— and lets you easily keep track of the colors you like. It includes over 1500 nail polish names and colors organzied by brands such as OPI, China Glaze, and Essie. You can mark colors you own as well as colors you want to buy with with the tap of a finger. You can even find similar colors in case the store you're in doesn't have the exact color you're looking for!
UPDATE: Julep has been added by popular demand!
