With wearable tech being integrated into fashion more each day, it was only a matter of time before it made its way into the beauty/ cosmetics industry.

Takara Tomy Arts, a Japanese company that creates playful items, has just released a collection of press-on nails that light up when near a NFC-enabled smartphone. Called Lumi Deco Nail, this system manages to operate without batteries, capacitors, or any other power source.

Each Lumi Deco Nail set comes with 16 press-on nails, one LED embedded nail, and a nail file. The LED nail has an antenna that lights up whenever a wireless NFC function is being used. Customers can also download an Android app that will allow you to customize when the nail lights up.
