Thao Dang, 23
Thao started off working as a receptionist in a nail salon and has worked her way up to be full time nail artist and technician. As a second generation nail tech with over 9 years in the industry, she believes nail art is her true calling and strives to open her own salon. With a hardworking mentality and big dreams, Thao wants to prove to the world that her gift can take her places she never thought possible. She draws inspiration from pop art, graffiti and the latest trends, but enjoys painting human eyes and cheetah prints the most.
Nail'd It Premieres Tuesday, October 7 at 9/8c.
