Money fingers: Rihanna shows off expensive manicure as she has $100 bill, 50 note and The Queen printed on her nails
01:16 GMT, 9 September 2012
Rihanna is well known for her often eye catching fingernails as she normally sports some form of colourful talons.
But the beautiful Bajan made an expensive statement when she showed off her latest fingertip design as she arrived at her London hotel, on Friday night.
The 24-year-old showed off her Minx manicure which featured some $100 bill pictures and 50 note cut-outs.

Rihanna's manicurist, Kimmie Kyees, applied the currency orientated strips to the singer hours before her appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards.
As well as unveiling a new cute pixie-crop hairstyle she also had money literally hanging from her finger tips as she walked the red carpet.
The Umbrella singer kept the same manicure as she arrived at Luton Airport on Friday evening, and jumped straight into a car to her hotel.

She may have been keen to show off her wealthy nails, but Rihanna was a little more shy when it came to her appearance.
The star kept a low profile with her eyes hidden behind a pair of black sunglasses and her head mostly concealed by the green hood of her jacket.
As well as her blue handbag, she was also seen carrying a large white folder which was labelled 'Weekly Updates', perhaps some bedtime reading for the star.

Her arrival in the capital city adds to speculation that she will perform at the Closing Ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Paralympic Games, on Sunday night.
Her former record label boss and good friend Jay-Z is expected to take to the stage at some point after Rihanna performs Princess Of China, with Coldplay.
Steve Daldry, head of Olympics ceremonies, confirmed other recording artists had wanted to be involved in the closing ceremony, but said Mr Gavin had a vision for it to 'revolve around one act'.
'Those requests have been turned down,' he said. 'We're not telling which special guests will be turning up.'

And he stressed: 'This is not just a Coldplay concert, by any stretch of the imagination. It is very much about festivals. Perhaps we (Britain) are the most enthusiastic about our culture of festivals and bringing people together, marking ends with festivals, beginnings, seasons of the year.'
Coldplay will perform alongside a cast of more than 1,300 volunteers, 120 child volunteers from schools in the east London Host Boroughs, and a 200 strong professional cast including Candoco Dance Company, disabled aerial performers trained at Circus Space and The British Paraorchestra.
