Tokyo, April 20 IANS | 7 months ago

You will soon have fingernails that would glow as you call someone.

A Japanese firm has unveiled fingernails that light up when you make a call.

You just need to pick up Android-powered smart phone to set your fingers glowing.

Building on the immense popularity of manicure art - where small gem-like stones are stuck on the nail - a Japanese toy firm Takara Tomy ARTS has developed a micro-thin LED sticker.

The "LumiDecoNail" uses a technology called Near Field Communication.

In this, small amounts of power are transferred very short distances to communicate with a smart phone.

It also flashes whenever the wearer uses an electronic money card.

The product would go on sale in Japan next week, with a set of 16 nail stickers, one of which contains the LED.

"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," a company press release said.

The company would consider marketing the cosmetic product overseas after seeing how consumers in Japan react.
