Manicures, Cupcakes, Wine & Bloggers sponsored by the Zync Card from AMEX!

So when I was invited to attend a Chicago Bloggers meet-up featuring manicures, cupcakes, wine and other bloggers you know it’s a guaranteed good time!

Whenever you put 3 of my favorite things in one place then you know I’m there!  So when I was invited to attend a Chicago Bloggers meet-up featuring manicures, cupcakes, wine and other bloggers, you know it’s a guaranteed good time!

The event was held at Cici Nails in Lakeview.

They had cupcakes from More Cupcakes, my new favorite is the Salted Caramel!

After some mingling it was time for my manicure, I chose to try Zoya Nail Polish, I had never used it before and I heard all good things…

Since I had been wearing a ton of holiday polish I wanted to try something bright so I went with the colors above…

I’m so upset that I didn’t write down the name of the colors before I left the salon! I may have to contact someone from Zoya to see if they can provide me with the names because I need both of these in my collection! Cici did an awesome job, when she was done I added some OPI Drip Dry laquer drying drops and my nails were dry in like 2 minutes.  My manicure lasted for a full week without any chips!

During the event we were provided more information regarding the  Zync Card from American Express, which is basically a card aimed at young adults in the 20-30 age range. The card comes with tons of rewards that are tailored to your interests, for more information check out their site.

As a take away we were given these cute USB cards…

Afterwards it was time for a few pictures with the ladies…

I had a great time with the ladies! Can’t wait to do it again…
