Nailed It, by Adele Pham, chronicles the genesis and 40 year legacy of the Vietnamese nail salon and its influence on an $8 billion-dollar American industry. For mixed-race Vietnamese filmmaker Adele Pham, it’s personal as she confronts her conflicts with the culture and discovers a place within a trade seen by everyone but known to few.

Nailed It is a 2018 recipient of Working Films’ Impact Kickstart award, which includes in-kind impact campaign strategy development.
