Now, I will show you a very easy way to illuminate your fingernails and your fingertips.
You can use this beautiful method in many cases.

Step 1: Tools You Will Need

1. A lighter
2. About 50-60cm of wire
3. 5 LEDs (for each hand)
4. Tricot tissues
5. 5 Lithium Batteries (for each hand)
6. Scissors and/or other instruments if you need.

Step 2: Get Ready..

First, use your lighter, scissors, and wires and connect each led light to an about 5-6cm of wire.

Then, connect a new wire to end sides of wires and do it one time for (+) wire and one time for (-) wire.

Step 3: Finalize

stick all of them on your fingers with a temporary material. (see the image)

connect batteries to the wire and then wear your hand with your tricot tissues.

It’s better that one person helps you for this.

You must generate a little pressure (for example with that tissue) on your fingertips in order to illuminate it .

    *wide eyed* wooooooooooooooooooooow

    “This hand of mine glows with an awesome power. It’s burning grip tells me to defeat you! Now here I go, Shining Finger!”

    You don't know how made of win that comment was.

    this is a really cool idea. it would be very useful for working with small tedious things in low light condition. I think if i were to do this i would rig it to a glove for ease of future usage

    Why do you need that much batteries (1 per finger)? there's another instructable that uses 1 batterie for 8 5mm LEDs.

    I can see this being used at a rave or something. Nice Job!


    What an interesting idea. Maybe you could put the LEDs under the fingernails in the manner of the Spanish Inquisition:)

    Well, I didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition!

    Well, nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.
