No one can deny that using the subway is *way* more convenient than driving in a super jam-packed city. It even has occasional love-life perks (remember the woman who panhandled for love on the MTA?)! But public transportation certainly has its drawbacks 聽generally, involving subway cards.聽There鈥檚 nothing quite as frustrating as getting to your stop and realizing you鈥檝e lost your card. But one student has thought of a totally brilliant solution鈥 by getting her subway chip embedded into her manicure.

According to Laughing Squid, Central Saint Martins jewelry design student Lucie Davis decided to get a manicure the same color as聽an Oyster Card, which is used to enter the London Underground. But the magic of the manicure doesn鈥檛 lie in the color; she embedded the chip from her Oyster card within the manicure so that she just needs her hand to get in.聽Pure brilliance.

鈥淚 took the RFID chip from an Oyster card and embedded it within a full set of acrylic nails to give commuters the ability to pay for their journeys with a single tap touch,鈥 she said, according to Laughing Squid. 鈥溾ou can still top them up with money too. Now you鈥檒l never have to worry about misplacing your card again!鈥

Don鈥檛 believe it? Lucie posted a video of the manicure in action:
