About us

On my 25TH birthday, I got the worst present ever. I was working at a cable television network where I thought I would be working for the rest of my life. Then the recession hit, I was laid off, and needless to say, devastated. Happy birthday to me. I spent the next few months unsuccessfully trying to find a new job. That’s when my mom gave me the pep talk I needed to hear.

“You can do anything you put your mind to. But the clock is ticking, you need to choose something and just go for it”, she said.


I spent the next few weeks thinking about what I wanted to spend the rest of my life doing. They say if you do what you love, then work won’t feel like work. I love making documentaries and I love nail art. So I became a filmmaker, and the idea for NAILgasm: The Nail Art Documentary was born.  

NAILgasm: The Nail Art Documentary

 

This was in 2010 when photos of nail art were starting to surface on the pages of Vogue to music videos for iconic pop stars. I was intrigued, along with the rest of the world, by the idea of using our nails as tiny canvases for miniature masterpieces. It’s such a great way to express your individuality.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign coupled with my life savings, I was able to travel to places like Tokyo and London to explore this “new” trend further. After 16 months of production, NAILgasm: The Nail Art Documentary was released in December, 2012.

The number one question I get asked: “When will the next NAILgasm be released?” THE ANSWER:  Soon, but not without your help. Instead of running another kickstarter, I’ve decided to make my love of nails into pins and other accessories. All purchases made in the NAILgasm 2 store will help get the next NAILgasm film made.

You can follow along the journey to NAILgasm 2 on the blog, as well as Instagram, TumblrFacebook, Pinterest and YouTube. I’m so excited to share this ride with you.
