So, we’re obsessed with Minx nails (if you haven’t already noticed) because they are SO. FREAKING. COOL. Trying to do nail art like that on your own is basically impossible, and you can switch up your look in a snap since they’re press-ons. But we thought Minx nails were for, you know, just nails. We had NO IDEA these crazy tips could transform entire outfits! Last week, French designer Charlie Le Mindu showed his collection at Paris Fashion Week, which featured items *gasp* made completely of Minx nails! Just LOOKING at one of Charlie’s dresses (above) you can tell tons of time went into creating these ensembles—each nail is different! The creators painstakingly covered each nail tip with not one, but two layers of Minx, which resulted in using more than 30,000 press-ons. Minx co-founder Dawn Lynch-Goodwin said, “Because each coating was layered over a metallic Minx base, it took twice as long to prepare the Kiss nail tips, but the metallic sheen combined with the hair graphic truly made the dress look like it was rippling down the runway.” The GORGE cobalt blue crew neck cap-sleeved dress with blue fringe was just the beginning of the Minx creations, though. Check out the endless possibilities of nail couture!

A jumpsuit made entirely of nails? WHY NOT! Charlie paired this plunging onesie with killer platforms for an edgy look that we’re dying to try. (Well, you know, if we had access to thousands and thousands of Minx.) On the right, even bikini bottoms weren’t spared from the nails! We hope that doesn’t…hurt.

Oh, hello, cobra snake headpiece made from nails. Nice to meet you. On the right, even dudes found a way to sport Minx (not like they haven’t before) by wearing gold-plated nails around the edge of a turban. NAILED IT!
