Interview With Britney Tokyo
JGB Editor: “What are some of the nail art trends you’re noticing for Fall 2014?”
Britney Tokyo: “Short nails are making a comeback, the ones with no extensions. Gel nail polish is also peaking, in deep colors like olive, burgundy and smoky grey.”
JGB Editor: “Do you have a favorite nail trend this season?”
Britney Tokyo: “I’m such a fan of gel paint design and using Swarovski crystals. When using crystals, I generally pick a color that’s different from the chosen nail polish and decorate one nail from each hand. In the winter, I like using silver studding, and in the Summer I tend to use more gold studding.”
JGB Editor: “Your favorite nail polish color?”
Britney Tokyo: “I love classic red.”
JGB Editor: “Nail polish brands, any favorite ones?”
Britney Tokyo: “Yes, Dior is my favorite! …oh, and Formula X is also a great brand.”
JGB Editor: “Vanessa Hudgens is one of your clients. Who, now, is your most recent celebrity client?”
Britney Tokyo: “Lily Allen.”
JGB Editor: “And what kind of manicure did you do for Lily Allen?”
Britney Tokyo: “For Lily Allen, I custom designed a tie dye theme.”
JGB Editor: “If you could work with one celebrity client of your choice, who would that be?”
Britney Tokyo: Omg! Madonna, of course.
JGB Editor: “You have tons of projects going on, which one is the biggest?”
Britney Tokyo: “I’m actually producing a nail gel. Its acrylic paint made from gel and comes in all sorts of cool pigments and textures. The brand is called Tokyo Swag Nail Collection and my launch date is November 16th.”
