TONIGHT: Nail’d It premieres on Oxygen, Tuesday 9/8C

Posted by on Oct 7, 2014 in Beauty, Celeb-essence, Lifestyle, Nails | 0 comments

Nail’d It, America’s first nail competition show, airs tonight on the Oxygen Channel

Oh, yes.  After years of pilffering Asian television for food shows (much to our delight), there is a new Nail show in town! Pitched by Nailympics competition creator Lysa Comfort, seasoned and newbie nail artists compete for a prize of $100K and instant notoriety. Who said nail art was dead? No word on if it will be as crazy as the Japanese counterpart, though.

As the nail world is on the small side, it’s going to be fun watching contestants, most of them familiar.  While the talent is pretty strong across the board, I’m really  looking forward to seeing work by Classic Mully and Lauren Wireman.
