The internet is brimming with some incredible nail art — just pop #nailart in Instagram and you’ll find over 35million snaps — but this latest design really takes the medium to the extreme.

Dubbed ‘hair nails’, this somewhat surreal form of nail art is the brainchild of illusion artist Dain Yoon, who has cleverly transferred her own face onto her nails and added actual hair. Impressive and creepy in equal measures.
Of course, the internet has plenty to say about it…

Impressive? Yes. A little bit weird? Yes. Creative af? Absolutely. While we won’t be running to the nearest nail bar and asking for our own hair nails, there’s no denying the imagination and originality of Yoon.
So, would you try it?
