By now, you’ve probably gotten your hands on Gwen Stefani‘s custom shades for OPI. And like the star herself, you’re excited to use the rocker-inspired hues — and accompanying nail art kits — in new and exciting ways. Because the mom-to-be is just that cool, she’s making it easy for you to experiment before you put on even one coat of polish, thanks to her new nail art app.

RELATED: The must-have for any manicure!

The app is part of a bigger multimedia experience centered around Stefani’s nailpolish collection (check out the whole thing at, where you can peruse inspiration photos, watch videos and get tutorials on how to create some of the trickier nail art using her collection. And if you’re feeling creative, you can use the app to digitally create nail art before trying it out on your own talons.

So what inspired Gwen to create this major mani experience? “I’m a huge girlie-girl when it comes to nails … When I’m doing performances or photo shoots and have the time, I really like to get into all of that,” the star told InStyle. “When my nails are done, I feel more complete, more ready.” Check out her app and submit your best work until Feb. 7 to be entered to win prizes!

What do you think of Stefani’s nail art? Will you try the app? Tell us below!
