Awards honour nail industry’s finest

Scratch Magazine's Scratch Stars were crowned last week in an awards ceremony at the industry nail magazine's annual summer party.

The awards, now in their eighth year, aim to recognise and reward outstanding talent and achievement within the professional nail industry, including nail technicians, bloggers and salons from across the UK.

Around 350 guests celebrated the achievements of the 18 winners at the party, hosted by TV personality Rylan Clark-Neal and held at London nightclub PROUD Embankment. Among the winners were The Gel Bottle Inc, which scooped Scratch's Shooting Star Award, Katie Barnes, who was awarded Nail Stylist of the Year and Denise Wright, who was honoured the top accolade for Services to the Nail Industry.

Helena Biggs, Scratch Magazine editor said, “We would like to thank all of the finalists for entering and getting stuck in with such determination and passion, and congratulations to all the winners; Scratch magazine is incredibly proud to have you represent the nail industry.”
