We've had reality shows about tanning salons, hair salons, tattoo parlors, fitness studios, and bridal salons. Now, finally, nail salon drama is getting its 15 minutes in the reality TV spotlight.
Nail Files (um, how awsome is that name?) premieres Tuesday June 21 at 10pm EST on the TV Guide Channel. It stars the very blonde Katie Cazorla, proprietress of LA's The Painted Nail salon. Teri Hatcher and Hilary Duff are fans of the salon, though Katie told some TV critics this past winter, "It doesn't matter if you're a celebrity. If you have jacked-up nails, I'm gonna tell you." We're not sure what jacked-up nails are, but it sounds bad.
It is the perfect reality TV cocktail: brassy star, a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills sighting, Debbie Gibson (?!), a bar in the salon, and work-life balance with a Grammy-winning boyfriend. The show's executive producer is Jersey Shore's Sally Ann Salsano, who knows a thing or two about successful reality TV, so we expect great things. Just think about the nail art and tantrums!
