The manicurists at the Nail Artisan salon in a small Florida county are hiding some serious secrets and spilling some hot tea.
Four of the manicurists don’t just pull off polished mani-pedis. They’ve dipped they toes into the seedy underbelly of organized crime, laundering money for a local pain clinic. The team is occasionally at each other’s throats, and each member is just as fierce as the last. Polly Marks is a pathological liar, burglar, and a professional con-artist whose loyalty knows no bounds. Annalise “Quiet Ann” Zayas’ origin story is built on tragedy and heartbreak, which makes her role as the pack’s muscle pretty apt. Virginia Loc is a former stripper who proved her dedication to do whatever it takes to serve the pack, even if it means actually having to perform manicures. The wolf mother who keeps the pack in check is Desna Simms, a nail salon owner determined to rise above her personal struggles to take care of her girls and her family.
Ever since they got involved with the central Florida underworld, there have been quite a few back-stabbings, heartbreaks, and even a few murders. Claws returns for its third season, with even higher stakes, as Desna and the pack juggle their tricky alliance with the Russian mafia.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream Claws.

What the critics are saying:
- “Sparkly nail salon culture, the low-life Floridian crime world and the close camaraderie of female friends is a winning combination for Claws, a series that favors true situation comedy and stylistic flair above trashy girl and bling clichés.” –Lorraine Ali, LA Times
- “I want the Mad Men version of this show, not the Breaking Bad version. Claws gives you sharp, jagged women to care about. I wish I cared more about the show itself.” –Jeff Jensen, Entertainment Weekly

For a more à la carte service, look to Sling TV. It offers two cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. If you grab them both (Sling Orange + Blue) you can save $10 per month. Sling Blue offers more bang for your buck with over 40 channels, including sports necessities like FS1, NBCSN, and NFL Network.
