NEW YORK – June 29, 2015– Oxygen Media makes an appointment at the hottest beauty salon in town premiering “Boss Nails” on Tuesday, August 11 at 9pm ET/PT. The series follows 26-year-old Dana Cody, the glamorous and sassy owner of Tippie Toes Beauty Lounge in Miami. A no-nonsense boss, Dana is determined to continue the legacy her mother left behind by building an empire one nail at a time. Each half-hour episode features Dana’s eccentric and sometimes unruly staff as they create custom, one-of-a-kind fantasy nail art for her equally unique and demanding clients. From a dancer that wants nails as fierce as her stilettos to an artist with an alter-ego who wishes to have a set filled with personality, the requests are over-the-top but no one ever leaves disappointed.
“’Boss Nails’ allows viewers to indulge in the salon-going experience and root for its young and determined boss, Dana Cody, who is putting her life on the line to grow a business she believes in passionately,” said Rod Aissa, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Development for Oxygen Media. “The series capitalizes on the increasing desire of self-expression, and acts as a source of nail-art inspiration for our young female audience.”
“Dana Cody is glamorous, real and fearless,” said Kim Martin, Principal and Executive Producer of Rock Shrimp Productions. “With a raucous staff she considers her family, anything can and does happen at ‘Boss Nails.’"
Looking to claw her way to the top, Dana broke boundaries in the world of nail design with “Treasure Nails,” a crystal embellished manicure made popular by celebrities and high-end clients alike. Determined to expand her business beyond Miami, Dana's formula for success isn’t following trends, it’s setting them. With the world at her fingertips, nothing will keep Dana from making her mother’s dream come true.

An up-and-coming nail tech and Dana’s personal primper, Doneita is the “wild child” of the crew and it doesn’t take much to see her fun side. Not afraid to make a statement with her own makeup or nails, her motto is, "Go big, bright, and bold...or go home."
