9 Dream Manicures We Wish Were A Reality

Retractable nails FTW!

Did you hear about Lucie Davis, the London fashion student who hacked her commute by embedding an Oyster card chip in her manicure?

An Oyster card is a pass used for bus and train transportation around London, much like NYC's MetroCard. Instead of searching for her card every time she had to go somewhere, Davis' nails allowed her to simply wave her hand over the scanner for admission.

6. Comb Nails

8. Speaker Nails

No more having to untangle the nest your headphones turned into in your purse — these nails will play your jams everywhere you go. But please, be considerate of your neighbors.
