    9 Dream Manicures We Wish Were A Reality

    Retractable nails FTW!

    by , ,

    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.

    Well, we've been thinking about it... and here are a few other fantasy manicures that could seriously change your life.

    1. Retractable Nails

    Got a beer bottle to open? A thread to snip? Another nail to file? These multi-taskers will help you MacGyver your way out of any sticky situation.

    3. Umbrella Nails

    These pop-out nails will save you from losing your 349507th brand new umbrella (or simply from the lying-ass days when the forecast called for sun).

    4. Condiment Nails

    To perfectly season your sandwich on the go.

    I mean, if there's anything more useful than commuter card nails...

    6. Comb Nails

    Sometimes your look is on point... except for your flyaways or bunching bangs. But tame your mane with these puppies, and you'll be photo-ready in no time.

    7. Studying Nails

    Even the best students (and other readers) forget their writing utensils sometimes — but with these nails, you'll be able to highlight and make notes no matter what. A+!

    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.

    9. Subtly Bacon-Scented Nails

    Maybe not strong enough for you and other humans to smell them, but definitely strong enough to make all dogs love you. Life goal unlocked.

    Please, someone make them a reality!
