The next big thing in nails

Hair & Beauty

If you love the long-lasting gloss of gel manicures, but are kind of over the major maintenance required, then you'll want to get yourself to a nail salon ASAP to check out these new hybrid products that promise chip-free results for over two weeks. CND Shellac (from $40) comes in 12 colors (choose one of the lighter tones for the longest-lasting results) and involves a high-tech quick-dry polish formula that dries under UV light in minutes. (You have to return to the salon to get the polish removed, but the process is gentle so it won't damage your real nails.) A similar procedure is involved with OPI's Axxium soak-off gel lacquer, which comes in over 30 shades. Either way, you'll be left with a manicure that will last from your wedding day through the honeymoon (and then some.)
