Here Contributing Editor and nail juggernaut Kro Vargas AKA @krocaine selects her favourite Valentine's Day inspired claws
Dazed Beauty Contributing Editor Kro Vargas (@krocaine) is a nail juggernaut. A love that began in the nail salons of Queens, where she would spend the day with her grandmother as a kid, grew into a full-time career and an Instagram fanbase of over 50K. A psychedelic collage of everything from Sailor Moon to the creation of Adam, Fiji water to fashion monograms - her work is always kitsch and always fabulous. In her monthly column, Kro will shine a spotlight on the nail artists she is loving and the trends we should be following.
This month love is in the air and what better way to show your love than through nail art? This month I will show some of my favourite Valentines Day inspired manicures.
