Nano Nails – Who knew your new manicure could be your stylus?

Nano Nails
Getting a manicure is a wonderful experience. Your hands feel clean and refreshed, and it boosts your self-esteem. However, getting artificial nails put on makes it much more difficult to type or use a touchscreen. Can you imagine what it would be like if your fake nails were your stylus?

The Nano Nails are stick-on nails that have a contact tip which will allow you to use them on your touchscreen devices. It will be a bit strange at first, as you will need to use the tip of your nail flat against the surface, but as it is with any new device, you’ll become accustomed to it after a while. These start out gray, and can be painted with snazzy designs, but you’ll want to be careful of covering the tip. It should be noted that these will wear out after about a week.

These will cost you around $10, and come in a pack of four. There are small and large sizes available, and you will be able to file them down a bit if need be. You shouldn’t need worry about scratching up your screen, but having a screen protector is never a bad idea. Keep in mind that this will need to be in direct contact of your nail bed, otherwise it won’t be able to pull from your body’s electrical charge. While these are targeted for women, it can be purchased by anyone who fancies them.
