Dollar dollar nails, y’all.

It's safe to say that all eyes were glued firmly on Jennifer Lopez's all-burgundy ensemble on this year's Billboard Music Awards red carpet. In hindsight, instead of focusing on her plunging neckline and leather knee-high boots, we should have been directing our attention to her killer manicure.

Recently, Jenny from the block's go-to nail artist, Tom Bachik, shared a close-up of her BMA's mani, revealing that there were actual $100 notes worked into the nail art. After all, what better to pair with diamond-covered fingers than cold hard cash?

To take JLo's already-extra nails up a notch, Tom used a mix of gold loose glitter, gold diamantes and what looks to be actual gold leaf.

While adding actual money to a manicure is pretty extreme, there was a method to the madness. The expensive nails were a tribute to Jlo's new single, 'Dinero', which is literally Spanish for 'money'.

And considering the BMA's were the first time she was performing the song live, Jen obviously wanted her whole outfit — bougie nails included — to be totally on theme.

She also ended her performance by showering her audience in cash, so in comparison, a cheeky hundred bucks on her nails doesn't seem so OTT.

This isn't the first time Tom has created a seriously impressive set of nails for the singer. For JLo's 'El Anillo' music video, he created these incredibly detailed acrylics for a scene where JLo was dripping in gold. Is anyone else getting serious Game Of Thrones vibes from this look?
