About the film
Visit any strip mall in the United States, and there’s bound to be a Vietnamese nail salon. But few Americans know the history behind the salons and the 20 Vietnamese refugee women who in 1975 sparked a multibillion-dollar industry that supports their community to this day. Weaving powerful personal stories with insightful interviews, “Nailed It!” captures an unforgettable and often hilarious saga charting the rise, struggle, stereotypes and steady hold Vietnamese Americans have on today’s multiethnic $8 billion dollar nail economy. Michigan premiere.
