Loosing Your Credit Card,

might soon be a thing of the past,

if more data can be added to this NFC chip, the chip is cleverly put on the client’s fingernails and turning them into business cards, at the moment using the user’s social media profiles and their websites, to their contact details and phone number which can also be installed on the chip, according to Lanour Beauty Lounge, the microchip manicure uses “near-field communication (NFC), a short-range wireless technology that makes smartphones, tablets, wearables, payment cards and other devices even smarter.”

the hope is that technology will advance to a point where Smart Nails can be used to pay for bills or share menus. “We install the information that you want. Like your name, your mobile number, your social media accounts, websites as well,” Makaren boasts in an Instagram post. “I always forget my business cards, you will not forget your fingernail.”

the microchip is a ‘passive device’, which means its data can only be read when in close proximity (under an inch) to NFC-compatible gadgets like smartphones, Nour Makarem claims that her salon has performed over 500 Smart Nail procedures so far, the beauty salon in Dubai charges 250 Dhs at today's rate £29.63 or $68.06, what a great way to not have to keep a wallet of credit cards with you all of the time.
