Nail Polish Book
By Patricia Baietto
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Nail Polish Book allows you to take your nail polish collection with you and quickly browse it wherever you are!
Do you have the right color for an occasion or to match a specific outfit? Do you want to buy a new nail polish, but wonder if you already have it or something similar? Now you can find out fast!
Simply take a picture of each nail polish that you own and then see what you have at a glance.
Optionally add the name, shade, brand, collection, and any desired comments. Add new shades, brands and collections as needed.
You can also search by keyword to match a nail polish quickly, which makes managing large collections a breeze.
What's New in Version 2.1
• Improved application performance for large nail polish collections
• Minor bug fixes
Not quite the full-service inventory tool I was looking for, but close enough to still be useful. You'll have to input everything manually, if you don't enjoy typing on your phone you will not enjoy this! My workaround is to sync my phone with my bluetooth keyboard.
I started using this app back when I had an older iPhone and I have since gotten a new phone, I can confirm that my database transferred over without any issues. You just have to backup your apps to a computer before you switch phones and then sync.
A barcode scanner would be awesome, and the ability to export your database to a spreadsheet would be amazing, too. But until then I'll continue using this and recommending it to my fellow polish lovers. It's worth the up-front effort, I've already avoided buying dupes!
Just what I was looking for!
Basic but perfect for keeping track of my polish inventory. After once again buying a color I already had (hey, at least I'm consistent with my tastes) I went searching for an app that would prevent me from doing it again. Yes, you do have to input the info yourself, but unless you have way too many bottles it won't take very long, even taking pics as you go. I get what others are saying about a barcode scanner, but scanning a tiny barcode on a small round bottle can't possibly work that well. Get over it and type them in. Just pretend you're texting.
I rely very heavily on this app to help me keep my 400+ bottle collection in order. I love being able to scan through the pictures (I take macro pictures of my swatch sticks) to decide what color I want to use. I'm also a big fan of being able to search by brand, color, finish, etc. There are a few things that would just take this app over the top and make it the ultimate polish organization tool:
One- I would love it if there were a way to view recently added polishes, kind of like in iTunes.
Two- There NEEDS to be some way to sync this app to the cloud. I lost my phone last summer along with all of my swatch pictures and had to go back and take them all again on my new phone. I've learned my lesson and back up all of the pictures I take on my computer now, but it sure would go the extra mile if this app could sync with the cloud so I wouldn't have to go through that.
All in all, I'm very pleased with this app and use it almost on a daily basis. Four enthusiastic stars!
