First of all, the Waldorff: whoa. The event was held in the Presidential Suite on the 26th floor. Swanky.
Of course, as I have discovered so wonderfully through the past couple events I have attended, there was food. I can never say no to cheese and bell pepper slices. And crackers. And hummus. The selection here was pretty tasty.

And of course, the topic of the hour: nails. If you're unfamiliar with CND Shellac, it's a "power polish" that claims to last 14 days with no chips and without losing its shine. Of course I'll be letting you know how it works out for me. I went with a lovely teal and blue ombre (the photo doesn't do the ombre justice!) with some silver foiling and nail art by the lovely AstroWifey. A big thanks to Gina for being a doll and doing my nails and to Rachel for inviting me to the event! I met many awesome ladies and can't wait to see how my nails last.
If you're in Chicago this week and want to give them a try for free (!), they will be offering free manicures at Taste of Chicago! Swing by and check them out.
Overall it was an awesome day that started with a trip to the beach, I attended this event, and then got a surprise visit from my best friend from home (Ms. Kelley B!) in the evening. I have a long weekend with my favorite girls and I can't wait!
