Hello! I have a really fun product to show you today! :D
These Japanese LED Nail Decals that have been kindly been sent to me from www.omgnailstrips.com.
From the OMG website – “The LED light chip is powered by NFC fields given off by most Android phones, Point of Sale Machines, Apple Pay and many other electronics, meaning when in the presence of these NFC fields your nail will light up and blink.”
And OMG are also in the process of designing an App for Android that would allow the nail to light up when you get different types of notifications on your phone. How amazing is that!?
OMG supply two types of led stickers, one specifically for Gel polish which is the chip on it’s own and the set with stickers is for use with regular nail polish.
The Decals are $5.99 per pack with free international shipping and are available in White, Green and Blue, for Gel and White, Red and Blue for regular polish!
Both chips I have to show you today are white ones!
Here is a little video (be nice, I don’t do videos often lol) of the chip for Gel polish directly on the back of my phone.
The LEDs for Acrylic and Gel are available Here
Applying the chip was really simple, the clear part of the decal is really easy to trim to size, I used a couple of coats of black polish to hide the chip, being very careful not to cover the LED.
I decided to use the pink rose accent sticker from the set. I found that the adhesive on the stickers is very strong, so repositioning it is a bit of a challenge.
I used Seche Vite topcoat and I did find that the Accent sticker went a little bit crinkly as the polish dried. I don’t know if a non quick dry topcoat would have the same effect on the accent stickers, unfortunately I don’t have any on hand to try!
Here’s another little video of it in action. This time on my nail :)
The decals for using with regular polish are available Here
The other products I used for this look are
- Barry M – Shocking Pink
- Butter London – Frilly Knickers
- Illamasqua – Scorn
- Moyou – Pro collection XL 07
- Konad – Special Polish Black
- Seche Vite Topcoat
I found that to get the best and brightest flashes I had to be holding my phone close to where the NFC chip is located. Unfortunately these won’t work with iphones.
Make sure that NFC setting is turned on on your phone or the LED won’t work!
I really do like these LED decals, they are so fun to wear!
