how to find your spring nail polish soulmate.

Spring has sprung, but if you're anything like me, this means the impossible choice of what color to paint your nails. I know it doesn't sound like a true dilemma, but any girl with an entire draw of nail polishes can tell you... it sort of is.

There's the want to go bright because of the sunny days, or to add glitter, or to stay plain or go pastel... just thinking about the options is making my head spin. So instead of just choosing out of the blue, I'm basing my weekly manis on my movie of the week--AKA the film I tune into post-work and pre-bed when I get home at night. Find out which nail lacquers pair nicely with which rad films in the slideshow, and then queue up your Netflix and let the mani magic happen.
