Nail art lovers everywhere will get a kick out of this: Japanese Nail Art company LumiDecoNail takes your love of creative kinds of nail art and adds a new ‘bright’ new twist to it.

The LumiDecoNail art uses Near Field Communication, a technology where small parts of power can be transferred to communicate with a smartphone with short distances. So whenever someone wearing the LumiDecoNail on their fingertips uses their smartphone, or a train pass or another type of electronic money card (Touch and Go, anyone?) their nails beam flashes of light!



Using toy company’s Takara Tomy’s A.R.T.S. technology, a micro thin LED sticker is hidden underneath the sticker nail art for the lights to work.

“I am now wearing it on the middle finger of my right hand. It blinks whenever I pass through train gates, which lifts my heart a bit,” said company spokeswoman Misayo Aruga.

Watch the undoubtedly kawaii video of the LumiDemoNail below:

The nail art collection will go on sale in Japan next week, with a set of 16 nail stickers, costing 1,200 yen (RM38).

But if you readers want to get your hands on some flashy nail art, you might not have to wait too long. The company is also considering selling the products overseas!
