Nail guy Robert Nguyen took to social media to debut the release of practical-to-apply LED lights for nails.

“I’m sure this is the first time you’re seeing anything like this! Changing the nail game one LED at a time,” wrote Nguyen on Facebook

The hottest thing right now! #led #nails. You seen my LED nails on @oxygen on #nailedit. But this is more practical. You can buy it on @skylinebeautysupply @mrnailart

Nguyen used the light-up nail art accessory to recreate the iconic “E.T. phone home” scene on an accent nail. “The light is a thin sheet that gets encased in the nail,” says Nguyen. “I painted around the LED to let it shine through.”
