Are you thinking about back to school already? Are you wondering what fashion and beauty looks will set you apart from the crowd? If you’re looking for a unique and functional manicure, Nail Sunny‘s pencil crayon nail art could be just the thing for you. It features a colored pencil design that’s actually functional.

Okay, so it might not really be the most practical thing for school — or really anywhere for that matter — but it earns top marks for creativity. Most people would doodle some mini colored pencils on their nails and call it a day, but Nail Sunny went all out. In the video the Russian nail salon shared on Instagram, we see that the manicure is created using extra-long false nails. They’re then painted to create a wooden colored pencil crayon effect.

The kicker comes when the nail technician chops the ends off pencil crayons and removes the colored pencil. A tiny bit of colored pencil is then fixed onto the end of the nail. As you see in the video, the model is actually capable of coloring with the nails.

It’s definitely not your ordinary manicure, but Sunny Nails doesn’t stick with traditional manicures. The nail chain has showcased everything from chocolate nails to bug in “amber” nails. The question is: Who’s game to attempt to recreate the colored pencil manicure at home?
