The Beauty Changes Lives Experience was held at the Modern Wing of the Art Institute of Chicago Sunday, April 29. The event featured a Nextgen team and mentors, who interpreted the theme of the evening, “Exposed.” CND’s Tori Bastian mentored team members Gina Cella, John Nguyen, and Trisha Lee as they created nails based around the theme “Limitless.” The CND team believes that nails have no limitations and no artistic boundaries. They created metallic, gold, silver, and purple nails with graphic touches to reflect the theme.

The Beauty Changes Lives Experience fundraiser unites the professional beauty industry through fundraising and celebration of the next generation of beauty professionals. Find more information at
