Floral nails for Spring?

TextKro Vargas


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.

Spring has officially sprung - it says so on Wikipedia. For 2019, spring started 20 Mar (yesterday) and will last up until 21 June. So for this month's column, we asked Krocaine to prove that, yes, florals for spring really can be groundbreaking. "This month's column is about my favourite floral manicures," she says. "A classic look that can be moulded into any style to match your mood just in time for the spring." Enjoy.
