Life presents us with all sorts of colors that dazzle the eye and inspire the imagination. If you’ve got your eye out for one color in particular, matching it can prove quite challenging. But there’s no need to resort to shuffling through paint store color samples. With the Nix Mini 2, you can identify any color you spot in the real world.

This accurate color scanner is currently just $59 (regularly $99). The Nix Mini 2 is discounted thanks to our Deal Days event, which ends October 12. During this sale, you can visit our Deal Days collection to find more price drops on everything from apps to gadgets — and most don’t even require a coupon!

Explore colors like never before

Rated 4.3 out of five stars on Amazon after more than 1,100 reviews, the Nix Mini 2 lets you take your artistic creativity to another level. It lets you easily incorporate the vivid colors you encounter daily into various projects.

Basically, this device turns your iPhone into a paint store of epic proportions. Simply place the tiny sensor on a surface you need color data from, such as a piece of cloth or a painted wall, and it’ll send a reading to the Nix app on your phone.

The Mini 2 will share sRGB HEX, CMYK and LAB color codes on the Nix Digital app, allowing you to use the perfect hue when you fire up apps like Photoshop or Illustrator. Or you can match your scans with more than 100,000 brand-name paints from Benjamin Moore, Dulux and Sherwin-Williams.

This setup makes for easy distribution of captured colors, whether you need to pass them along to clients, customers or designers. Images also can be uploaded directly to social media platforms.

Less than 2 inches wide and long, the Nix Mini Color Sensor V2 is rechargeable using the included micro USB cable and any standard plug, so it’s an easy on-the-go accessory.
