BROOKLYN, NY -Making it in the Big Apple can be a big challenge; but one young entrepreneur is taking her talent to the bank.

Mei Kawajiri is no Broadway star or fashion designer. She does nails, and she does them well.

The 30-year-old from Tokyo moved state-side, and in one year she’s made $300,000.

Her designs are all the rage, all-be-them peculiar. She done Picasso, Jay-Z lyrics, Passover and the Fab Four.

And if you want to get with this gal you have to wait three weeks and dish out a pretty penny. One manicure costs between $120 and $150.

But hey, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. And for Mei, she nailed it.
