The latest in freaky manicures comes in the form of colouring pencil nails.

Oh, I am dead serious.

And while they are SO impractical and kind of weird, they're also wicked impressive.

Instagram user @nail_sunny created the manicure that's colourful and totally bonkers.

The nail salon, which is based in Russia, posted a video on how the look was achieved.

Which means that the nails can actually be used to write, and colour.

So that's a practical use I guess.

An acrylic base was used, with intricate nail art added after - and then came the pencils.

The nail artist that created this look is no stranger to crazy nail art.

A few months ago she designed royal wedding nails.

Oh, she was also responsible for those violent nails that looked like teeth.

I'll stick to a shellac for now...
