Students, start your manicures. Chicago-based beauty school chain Tricoci University may be new to Indianapolis, having launched its first Central Indiana campus in 2012, but the students and staff are getting a head start on the Indianapolis 500 race excitement. On April 16, students participated in a manicuring competition to create an Indy 500-inspired nail design. The winners were:

1st Place

Congratulations to all of the winners!
