In virtually every city, state and strip mall across the U.S., women get their nails done in salons likely owned by Vietnamese entrepreneurs. How did this community come to dominate an $8 billion dollar nail economy? Nailed It takes viewers from Los Angeles to the Bronx to meet the diverse people and relationships behind this booming and enigmatic trade.
Nailed It premiered on PBS in May 2019, and is the highest streamed film of the America Reframed series. Uncover the real history of the Vietnamese nail salon! We are excited to welcome Filmmaker Adele Pham to Lawndale and ECHS! She will stay for a Q&A following the film screening. For more information about the documentary, visit www.naileditdoc.com.
