These Swiss Cheese Nails Look Terrifyingly Like Real Cheese

We challenge you not to bite these things right off your hands.

As summer hangs on by a bikini-strap thread for a few more weeks, here's some consolation: Fall means Halloween, and we've already got some killer food-related costume ideas for you. Or for your nails anyway. 

Enter one of the most epic nail-art designs we’ve ever seen: Swiss cheese—terrifyingly authentic-looking Swiss cheese.

While this definitely isn’t the first portrayal of dairy products on fingernails, we can’t get over how life-like these look. From the subtly different shades of yellow to the holes drilled directly into the nails, @tastemade_japan, um, nailed these things. In their short Instagram video above, you can see the step-by-step tutorial on how to recreate this look (warning: the instructions are in Japanese). Start practicing now, and you might have this mastered by October 31.

If you prefer your food-bedecked nails a little less scary, here are a few more ideas to chew on...Another take on the cheese nail:
