Whether Adrienne Bailon is walking the red carpet or chatting on her co-hosts on “The Real”, her nail game is always on point.
It then doesn’t come as a surprise that Adrienne was tapped to host “Nail’d It,” Oxygen’s new competition show that puts 18 of the best up-and-coming nail artists on the spot. The artists will compete against each other in challenges, using acrylics, gel polish and lacquers, for a grand price of $100,000 and a chance for their designs to be featured in “Nail’d It” Magazine. Unlike other competition shows that eliminate contestants you’ll never see again, “Nail’d It” artists who are runners up of challenges in the first six episodes can compete in the four-part finale (against challenge winners) until one nail artist wins the ultimate grand prize.
The competition is stiff for the artists, but Adrienne’s nail art and style is far from it on the show. She tells #TeamBeautiful she loves getting crazy nail art done with friend and “The Real” co-host Jeannie Mai, and the two are on a mission to convince their other co-host to jump the nail-art bandwagon. “We just got Loni into nails,” she told us in an interview. “She’s got such a fun personality that I would love to see her show that on her fingertips. Don’t worry, we’re working on it.”
As for who has the best nails on the show, Adrienne quickly told us it’s Tamar Braxton (are you surprised?). “Tamar has the best nails on the technical side because the thing that I learned from doing (Nail’d It) is that nail beds are so important,” she said. “The larger the nail beds the better. Even when her nails are cut all the way down, it still looks like she has long nails.” She says that Tamar doesn’t venture into wild nail art, but opts for a classic red instead.
You can catch Tamar and Adrienne’s gorgeous nails on “The Real,” but tune in to “Nail’d It,” when it premieres on Tuesday, October 7 at 9pm EST on Oxygen!
