Kahlana Says: “The beauty team is in the process of testing out the best salons and spas around the country for our annual Beauty Black Book feature, and Valley Nails in New York City (valleynyc.com) was one of my latest stops. The salon is known for its nail art, so I brought in a tuxedo-inspired two-tone mani I spotted on the Tumblr page of celebrity nail artist Ran Kowatari for inspiration. Ayumi Motegi, one of the salon’s amazing nail artists, replicated the look by creating this freehand design. It came out perfect!”
