I am Tippi Hedren

Who is Tippi Hedren? The actress from Alfred Hitchcock's movie The Birds, of course. Why mention her and fingernails in the same sentence?

Flew in her manicurist

 Because, back in the 70s when Vietnamese Boat People were fleeing a fallen Saigon, Tippi visited one of the tent cities near Sacramento. She noticed the Vietnamese ladies were good with their hands and flew in her manicurist to give them some lessons on basic skin care. Then, she persuaded a local beauty school to give them free lessons.

And now, Dear Reader, we have coast to coast manicure shops run by pretty Vietnamese girls.
