Salon categories and Mobile Nailist of the Year will also undergo a mystery shopper assessment.

The finalists are competing for the accolade of being top in their chosen specialties and the coveted ‘star' trophies.

Winners will be chosen by a 28-strong judging panel made up of experts from the nail, beauty, fashion and business industries, which have been selected for their individual and specialist knowledge and experience.

All the finalists will be invited to attend the Scratch Stars Awards Party at PROUD Embankment, London on Sunday 6th September 2020* and after getting in the party mood, the Scratch Stars Awards winners will be revealed by a soon to be revealed celebrity host.
