She's in the Money! Kylie Jenner Flaunts $100 Bills Manicured on to Her Nails
The Kylie Cosmetics mogul and reality star, 21, showed off her freshly polished tips designed by nail pro Chaun P. that featured realistic-looking $100 bills glued onto two fingers on each each hand. Jenner flaunted the nails on her Instagram story and later posted a complete shot of the design writing, “till my fingers blue 🤑.” The caption references the lyrics to rapper Smokepurpp’s 2017 hit “Fingers Blue,” which features the star’s boyfriend Travis Scott as a guest artist.
Jenner’s friends immediately complimented her boss nail art in the comments. “Dammmm straight fire,” Kardashian-Jenner makeup artist Hrush Achemyan wrote. Khloé Kardashian’s longtime best friend Malika Haqq simply said, “BOSS.”
“I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future,” she told Forbes. “But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.”
The star was estimated to surpass Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest self-made billionaire ever in July 2018 before being named the world’s youngest billionaire in Forbes‘ annual Billionaires 2019 ranking.
Though many have been left wondering if the term “self-made” could apply to someone from a wealthy family like the Kardashians, Jenner set the record straight, revealing that her parents, Kris and Caitlyn Jenner, “cut her off at the age of 15.”
“I had such a huge platform, I had so many followers already and I had so many people watching me,” Jenner told PAPER, adding that “the self-made thing is true.”
“My parents told me I needed to make my own money, it’s time to learn how to save and spend your own money, stuff like that,” she said. “What I’m trying to say is I did have a platform, but none of my money is inherited.”
She defended her billionaire status yet again in new interview with Interview Germany. “There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth. That is the category that I fall under,” Jenner said.
Driven by Kylie Cosmetics’ expansion into Ulta last year, the company’s revenue climbed 9% last year to an estimated $360 million, with the overall valuation of the brand estimated at $900 million, which Forbes calls a “conservative” report. Jenner owns 100% of Kylie Cosmetics, which first launched in 2015 with three Lip Kits.
