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.
