With Flying Colours Face the Music Since Jennifer Lopez has trusted Joy Stewart for a facial, we thought we could, too. At her cozy, oneroom spa Touch of Joy, Stewart offers highly personalized bridal skincare packages that start up to six months before your wedding and are designed to make your skin glow, lower your stress and increase your energy. "I read your skin, which is like a mirror that reflects what's happening inside and out. Then we design a preventative program so you'll look your absolute best," says Stewart. Facials from $150 (1.5 hours); bridal packages custom-priced. Remember when you had to wait (and wait) for your nail polish to dry, then CND Shellac launched its über-fast UV-drying process? The same company has created Vinylux, a fast-dry, at-home weekly polish system (read: great option for getting those nails ready in the months before the wedding without the expense of weekly manicures). A two-step system, you apply a self-adhering colour coat (no base coat needed), then a topcoat that hardens more when natural UV light hits it. Take it off with polish remover in an instant. If you're someone with a steady hand who changes nail colour regularly, this stuff is gold — especially with 62 shades to choose from. Though we still recommend a pro gel polish for the big day. Polish from $11.90.
