NAILPRO Behind the February 2016 Cover: Money Manicure

Nail artist Britney Tokyo shows how to create this quirky, sculpted dollar bill, euro, and yen money nails.

For the February 2016 cover of NAILPRO, nail artist Britney Tokyo imparted her uniquely edgy aesthetic to this set of nails resulting in a cool and kitschy creation. The acrylic tip overlays were topped with a layering of temporary money pattern “nail tattoos” in collage design. Then, Tokyo piled the nails high with custom-created 3-D embellishments in the form of sparkling ruby hearts and glittery monetary symbols: the dollar, Euro and Yen. While the end result might be a little avant garde for your (or your clients’) taste, it doesn’t mean that you can’t adopt elements into your own work. Plus, they make for amazing eye candy!
