Bring it on AC. Katie Cazorla- the New-York-born former stand-up comic, has amazing entrepreneurial chops as she turned her favorite relaxation technique into a business, a way of life, and a reality show.
 
We are ready for the weekend, we are ready for the summer, and last but oh-so-not-least, we are ready for Katie Cazorla! This New-York-born former stand-up comic (she is quite funny!) has amazing entrepreneurial chops as she turned her favorite relaxation technique into a business, a way of life, and a reality show.
 
Even when she was attempting to live the LA dream, auditioning and eating Ramen Noodles for ten years and living out of her car sometimes, she still made time for her manicures and pedicures.

One day she had a too-expensive, less-than-relaxing treatment so terrible it made her cuticles bleed. She dreamt up the idea to open 'The Painted Nail,' a place where clients can get excellent manis/pedis, relax, get a hand massage, lounge in comfortable chairs and have a drink or two. She scraped together all her money, took classes in Koreatown, and set up shop.
 
Less than three months after opening, clients- celebs included- were lining up to get pampered. “My first client who called was Ashley Tisdale, and said she was bringing a friend (High School Musical pal Vanessa Hudgens) and I wasn’t sure if it was the real deal when I saw the caller ID!” Katie exclaims. Within six months of opening her nail bar, Katie took over the next door building and launched a popular clothing boutique and a nail-themed party lounge. She recently launched her own branded nail polish line and is busy planning to open franchises in Hollywood, Las Vegas and London.

And then along came the reality TV van. And so Katie and friends are doing their day-to-day work, pampering celebs and while the cameras are roiling, drama and fun unfold!  The biggest challenge Katie currently has is being away from the salon. “I worry when I am not there, especially when want to personally see all my clients.”

So to let everyone know just how cool Katie is (she so is!), she’s been doing a tour in her nail truck all over the east coast, among other places. The people of Philly and Jersey can come meet Katie at her Mobile Spa Truck (a nail salon on wheels!) in Atlantic City on Saturday, May 28th from 11AM – 2PM at the Outlets. Fans are invited to come down and meet Katie and get their nails done!The people of Philly and Jersey can come meet Katie at her Mobile Spa Truck (a nail salon on wheels!) in Atlantic City on Saturday, May 28th from 11AM – 2PM at the Outlets.

She has been all over on the east coast lately, it’s been so crazy. She’s enjoying getting to meet people and discuss that it’s not just a show about people getting manicures and nails drying. She just laughs when asked that.

“The cameras show up and I just do my thing,” Katie explains, “Which is giving the best manicures and pedicures to my clients and making sure they have a great time!”

 

When she’s not busy taking over the world of LA celebrity glamour, she spends her free time at home with her Grammy award-winning fiancé, Walter Afanasieff, and their two dogs Sugar and Pookie.

Oh and in case you were wondering, Katie is currently wearing her favorite color on her nails glitter! “Glitter is a color! I have on Sugar Momma and OMGorgeous.”

 

The new TV GUIDE Original Reality Series – Nail Files – premieres on Tuesday, June 21st at 10pm ET/PT. The other characters in Katie’s life are as colorful as she is: her smart best friend, her drama queen friends, with an unpredictable line-up of celebrities who stop by the salon everyday to get a touch up and discuss Hollywood gossip- you know life is anything but calm in the Nail Files!
