This brings a whole new meaning to 'nailed it.'

When Anna Goswami, a Central Saint Martins at the University of the Arts London grad, took on the task of her final design project, she had something epic in mind. To bring her pop-art inspired pieces to life, she used multi-colored fake nails instead of sequins, according to Mashable.

As you might imagine, that takes a lot of nails – all of which Anna hand painted herself(!) . "I'm a nail art obsessive, and have always been a fan of beading and heavily embellished fabrications, so I just put the two together and decided to use false nails as my beads," she told Mashable.

The nail colors were inspired by '70s photography, and the dress designs range from a full-length gown to a tunic and a cocktail dress. Aside from Anna's own talent, Central Saint Martins is known for producing fashion greats like John Galliano, the late Alexander McQueen, Riccardo Tisci and Stella McCartney. With Anna's creativity, we have no doubt great things are on the way for her too.
