Give Yourself the Perfect Virtual Manicure with these AirBrush Tools

Do you remember that scene in The Fifth Element? The one where the receptionist just sticks her finger into a little gadget and her nail color instantly changes? We know you fantasize about it when your butt is stuck in the manicure chair. But we think we’ve got the next best thing. You can give yourself a virtual manicure with AirBrush and see what color, texture or length you want to try next. 

Stamp

If you’re one of the matchy-matchy girlies, we’ve solved your problem for life. You can pull the color of any part of your outfit and fill your nail color to match. The Stamp tool lets you grab a color or pattern, and paste it to create a perfectly matched virtual manicure. Can you envision a ditzy, floral pattern from your summer dress, on your nails? We think it’s pretty fabulous!

Background

With the Background tool, you can import any picture, featuring any color, image, or pattern. You can then apply it to your nails. Digging the graffiti you saw in the city today? Grap a pic and it can be on your nails. Really feeling those redwoods from your weekend hike? Carry the memory on the back of your hand. The point is, even if it's just a unique color you’ve become enamoured with, you can transfer it to your nails, quick and easy.

Skin Tone

Color is half the fun when it comes to manicures and the Skin Tone opens up the full spectrum to you. Something to keep in mind with this tool is that any color you select is translucently applied to the base color. So the used Skin Tone color is always affected in this way.  But that being said, the range to change your nail colors on the fly is impressive. You can even play with creating your own patterns or abstract art by layering up colors

Glitter

This is where the matchy-matchy girls meet the "shimmer and sparkle" girls. The Glitter tool adds a dash of shine to your nails. As with our other tools, Glitter is extremely easy to apply. It just takes a swipe of your finger. You have the choice of color and intensity and the precision of your fingertip to make your virtual manicure pop with glitter and texture.

Reshape

If you’re considering the latest trending nail shape or length, you can use the Resize tool to create the look in a virtual manicure. This tool grants you the power to pull objects in any direction and resize and reshape them. Try out a coffin style, an almond shape or go extreme with super long nails if you’ve always wanted to try them.
