Just when we thought we had seen it all when it comes to nail art, technology takes it to a new level. Lumi Deco Nails, by the Japanese company Takara Tomy Arts, are a collection of press-on nails with integrated LEDs, for when traditional sparkle and shine just won’t do.

The “stickers” come in a variety of colorful designs and with the use of a built in antenna, light up when near NFC (near field communication) enabled digital devices, such as Android smartphones, tablets, mobile wallets, video game controllers, etc. The system operates without batteries or any other power source.

Each Lumi Deco Nail set comes with 16 press-on nails, one LED embedded nail, and a nail file. Customers can also download an Android app that will allow you to customize when the nail lights up. The nails sets are available in a variety of styles and designs for $12.

Anyone else think this new trend will be a flash in the pan?
