Nailed It

A fortuitous encounter with twenty Vietnamese refugee women and The Birds actress Tippi Hedren in 1975 sparks the Asian nail salon as we know it. In this hour-long documentary, Nailed It presents a lineage of legacy moments in nails, like Mantrap, the first nail salon chain to cater to black women in the ‘hood. The democratization of the manicure fans the fire of Vietnamese “discount” nail salons blazing across the country. Through the international journey embarked upon by Nailed It director Adele Pham, this unique film captures an unforgettable and often hilarious saga born of tragedy, charting the rise, struggle, stereotypes and steady hold Vietnamese Americans have on today’s $8 billion nail industry.
