Challenges Nail Polish Brands Are Facing
Over 100 million people use nail polish products in the United States (Statista)1, yet picking the right shade can often be a challenging process. The proper shade depends on the occasion, mood, outfit, skin tone, season, and many other factors.
Consumer's Pain Points
To know for sure if a shade is the right look, most people want to try it out first and see how the color would look on their hands before painting their nails. Traditionally, this process hasn’t been easy.
▲ Customers facing difficulties in choosing nail colors.
In a store or a nail bar, customers can’t just open a bottle and do a quick swatch. They need to purchase the product if they open it, and they may find they dislike the color after applying it to their nails. While physical stores sometimes have nail swatch sticks for previewing colors, these aren’t always reliable, as the color may look different when applied to a real nail.
Shopping for nail polish online is even more complicated. Up until now, customers have only been able to reference product photos and videos to make their decision. In these cases, they have to use their best judgment and hope the product meets their expectations.
These challenges led Perfect Corp. to develop its innovative AI-powered virtual try-on for nails, simplifying the nail polish shopping experience and helping customers find their perfect shade.
When it comes to beauty products, trying before buying is crucial and nail products are no exception. AR nails for virtual try-on elevates and simplifies the consumer shopping experience online and in-store. Customers will now have the chance to try before they buy, which has been a major pain point in the nail polish shopping journey.
How AR Nails Try-On Drives Sales & Engagement
It should come as no surprise that virtual try-on has been proven to drive sales and engagement for many top beauty brands.
Sally Hansen, a Coty brand, partnered with Perfect Corp. to offer its customers personalized, fun, and ultra-realistic nail polish virtual try-on experience. With this new virtual feature, shoppers could try on more than 100 nail color shades and view the colors from multiple angles in order to make a confident purchase decision. Sally Hansen’s AI-powered virtual nail color try-on experience garnered impressive results, increasing the add-to-basket conversion rate by over 110% and time spent on product pages by more than 100%.
At the end of the day, consumers want fun, easy, personalized beauty experiences, and AR virtual try-on for nails delivers just that. Now, seeing how a specific manicure will look before committing to a shade is no longer a distant dream.
What’s more, with the ability to try on multiple colors and see hyper-realistic results, customers will often purchase even more products and shades. This is a game-changer for nail brands when it comes to increasing sales and customer engagement.
