The series follows high-spirited and energetic Katie as she aspires to take The Painted Nail to the next level. With the support of Walter and her ever-present best friend Amy, Katie hosts gifting suites at the Sundance Film Festival and The Oscars(R), walks the red carpet at the Grammys(R) Awards, launches her Spring line of polishes, and handles her celebrity clients all while placating her trouble-making staff. Katie's life may seem glamorous, but keeping all the balls in the air without stumbling is a daily challenge.
