The LED nails will light up every time you get a call or swipe your Oyster card.

We've had a printer that lets you print your own eyeshadow and lipstick, and now tech beauty has gone even further with nails that light up when you get a text.

The LumiDecoNail, by Japanese toy company Takara Tomy, features an LED that uses Near Field Communication (NFC) to communicate with your smartphone.

That means every time you're near an NFC device, like an Android phone (iPhones sadly not included), debit card or magnetic train pass (ie Oyster card), it lights up.

The set of 16 stickers, one of which features the LED, is on sale for about £7 in Japan only for now, but fear not, there are plans for it to come to the UK.

If you're still unclear on how they work, check out this rather awesome ad:
