Look what you could have been doing this during any and all of our recent monsoon-related blackouts. No candlelight required.

Canadian cosmetics company Lise Watier debuted a bright idea earlier this year. Lise Watier Light Cap Nail Lacquer ($12.50, features a light in the cap, which is tremendously helpful for those of us with fading eyesight (#agingsucks) and power problems because Mother Nature is cray-cray-cranky.

The Light Cap nail polish collection offers 18 shades for now; in the photo and 16-second vid below is Pink Tartan, a new Fall 2013 shade. (See more Fall 2013 nail polish shades here.)

Pink Tartan reminds me of the nail polish shade Claire (Molly Ringwald) wears in The Breakfast Club; you see it perfectly in the scene in which she gives Bender (Judd Nelson) her diamond stud earring after detention. (Found a clip! See end of post.)

Have you seen this Light Cap nail polish concept before? Great idea for blackout times, right? If you have nothing better to do.
