Keep Your Home Projects From Turning Disastrous With This Nix Mini Color Sensor V2

Going into the winter months, it seems like home decor projects will be one of our only sources of entertainment (notice how we didn’t say it was the only one). If you need a little assistance getting the paint to match your room, this Nix Mini Color Sensor V2 should help do the trick. To sweeten the pot, it’s on sale as part of our version of Prime Day during Mandatory’s Deal Days event.

The Nix Mini Color Sensor V2 is a must-have for any artist looking to make it big or a regular human that needs to step up their home essentials game (it’s not that you have no taste, it just needs a little refresh). The V2 uses Bluetooth to scan any wall or surface type (including painted walls, vinyl, leather, plastic, and fabric). From there, you get an instant match to more than 100,000 brand name paint colors or to sRGB HEX, CMYK, and LAB colors. Because it blocks out all ambient light and provides its own calibrated light source for accurate readings, you’ll always get an accurate read.

But we also know that an idea like this is only as good as its output product. Once you have the specific color, you’ve got to take it somewhere. Scan big-name paint brands like Benjamin Moore, Dulux, Farrow and Ball, and Sherwin Williams and head to the hardware store in the easiest way to match paint in the history of paint (sorry to Michelangelo, could’ve helped a whole cathedral’s worth).

Because you get lifetime access with this deal, you’ll always find a new home improvement task to do (to your partner’s dismay, maybe lay off taking walls down to the studs for a while). Whatever you decide to create in or around your abode, the Nix Digital app can scan and save your future creations while using Photoshop’s eyedropper tool to really get into the crux of your cool project.

Find out what CNET and Mashable are raving about. Get the Nix Mini Color Sensor V2, which includes a lanyard, micro USB cable, quick start guide, free lifetime access to Nix Paints Android and iOS apps, and free lifetime access to the Nix Digital Android and iOS apps, for $59 (reg. $99).
