Twinkle, Twinkle Little Nail

By Melissa Meisel, Associate Editor | October 18, 2013

The latest craze in nail art is electric—literally.

Between plantable packaging and snake venom skin serums, I think now I’ve seen it all in the beauty sector. An innovation out of Korea, the latest spin on nail art is fueled by your Smart Phone. Twinkle Nail lights up via LED when your phone is ringing. This sticker can also be used a base to layer gel nails or regular nail polish. It hits the marketplace in December 2013.

According to its creators, the technology of Twinkle Nail is based on Wireless Power from NFC radio. (NFC: Near Field Communication is used for mobile payment) Its flexibility and thin size make it easy to apply on any nail, and it is even waterproof. Robot nails of the future? We are getting closer.

Here is a video about the product.
