Like any museum or art gallery, the atelier hosts a series of rotating exhibitions of contemporary video art, which is projected on the salon's walls. Visitors receive a pair of wireless headphones to listen to audio commentary about the works — while getting manicures, obviously. The current exhibit entitled "Girls, Girls, Girls" features pieces by 10 female video artists. The salon also hosts a nail artists in-residence program, which hosts the industry's greatest talents in two-week installments.
As far as the actual nail art goes, the salon specializes in art history-inspired manicures, featuring works by de Chirico, Magritte, Dali, Warhol, and Picasso, among others. Manicures and pedicures at this atelier start at $50, but we're thinking the one-hour art education session you're getting with the service is pretty much priceless. (Blouin Art Info)
