The Next Reality TV Star: Nail Art

Yep. They're actually creating a TV competition pitting nail art designers against each other

What do Honey Boo Boo and nail art have in common? Soon, both will feature prominently in your nightly guilty pleasure reality TV veg-fest. Variety reports that Oxygen network is jumping on the tippy-tail end of the extreme nail art bandwagon with "Nailed It!," a new competition pitting breakout nail designers against each other for worldwide nail art domination.

The show will follow standard competitive reality TV protocol -- think: Project Runway and America's Next Top Model with a roster of typecast nail artists competing in twice-weekly challenges that focus on their "ability to work with extreme themes and custom designs." At their disposal, nail artists will have nearly every material known to nail -- gels, wraps, polishes, glitter, lace, rhinestones, 3D objects and other "extreme" (unnamed) materials.

In other breaking nail art news, Oxygen's announcement coincides with a recent order for Swedish track competitor to remove the rainbow polish from her nails at a track competition in Russia. The high-jump athlete painted her nails to protest recent anti-gay laws passed in Russia, but was informed that the act was in violation of conduct rules. The athlete, Emma Green-Tregaro, then painted her nails red, "for love," she said.
