Like many women and some men, I thoroughly enjoy getting a regular manicure and pedicure. An opportunity to get a mani-pedi is an opportunity for an hour of affordable pampering. My personal routine includes visiting the same nail technician every other Wednesday at my favorite salon. It gives me a chance to try different nail colors, styles and techniques but it also gives me a chance to check-in with my technician and friend Justina. Recently, I was pleasantly surprised to have the familiar feeling of getting my nails done while visiting the Imperial Nail Salon, inside the Architectonics section of the Homebodies exhibition at Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
