One of the most stressful parts of getting a manicure is choosing a nail polish shade. You stand in front of rows and rows of gorgeous nail colors, and have to pick just one or two hues – how will you ever choose? Having some insight from the best in the business can help in these times of pressure, so when Twitter user @Redfuzzycow asked what the hottest nail polish colors of the season were, we wanted to know what celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik would say, too. He is of course using these shades on his top clients!
