My First Ever Manicure, Courtesy of ‘The Nail Files’


As some of you may know, my friend Katie has landed herself a full-on reality show called The Nail Files on the TV Guide Channel, and guess what? It premieres tomorrow night! The series revolves around Katie and her nail salon, The Painted Nail, and in an attempt to get the word out, TV Guide held a little press junket at the PN (that’s what I call it when I’m trying to sound cool) and invited various members of the media to receive their own complimentary manicures. I’m never one to turn down a freebie, especially if it helps promote my friend’s business / reality show. And so I traveled on over to The Painted Nail and submitted myself to my first ever manicure.

Inside the Painted Nail Spring Launch Party


A few nights ago, my friend Katie had a party to celebrate the launch of her new Painted Nail products, and so my crew (IndianJones and Phamtastic) and I all trekked on over to see what the hullaballoo was about. Here’s the thing: when Katie throws a party, you go. Last time I dropped by one of her events, I got a picture with Maria Conchita Alonso. ‘Nuff said.

Anyway, for those of you who aren’t familiar, Katie runs a much-lauded nail salon here in Los Angeles, and soon it shall be featured prominently on the TV Guide reality show The Nail Files, starring Katie and her boyfriend Walter. I’m happy to report the cameras were rolling at the party, which means my burgeoning side career of appearing briefly in the background of reality shows continues to thrive. (Stay tuned to Bravo for more on that front)

After the jump, a few random pics from the event… Continue reading
