A London fashion student has invented the world’s first Oyster Card nails.

Lucie Davis created the ingenious wearable tech as part of her BA in jewellery design at Central Saint Martins.

Not only is the nail art inspired by the Oyster Card design, you can use the press-on nails instead of your travelcard.

That’s because one of the acrylic nails contains a tiny RFID (Radio-frequency identification) chip linked to your Oyster account.

Talk about having the city at your fingertips.

The idea came about when Davis was asked to create a project inspired by engaging with her daily surroundings, and immediately thought of her morning commute.

Now if only someone would show this to all those people who never have their travelcards ready (and don’t even get us started on the ones causing queues while they ‘figure out’ the Apple Pay app).
