Nail pros, salons, industry supporters & social media starlets – it’s time to step into the prestigious nail competition arena and see if you can be recognised with a Scratch Star Award

For 10 years, Scratch magazine has championed nail professionals and businesses in the UK nail industry by awarding Scratch Stars; coveted titles that honour skill, know-how and plenty of passion.

Coined ‘The Oscars of the nail industry’, the Scratch Stars Awards upholds immense prestige in the sector, with the accolades serving to enhance profiles, open up opportunities and boost businesses.

This year, the awards welcomes entry to pros and businesses in the Republic of Ireland, furthering its commitment to recognising exceptional and emerging talent.

There are 18 categories presented for 2023 that cover a variety of skillsets, and eligible persons or businesses can enter a maximum of two categories each for free between 1-28 February.

The annual event considers not just nail skill – but customer care, passion for the industry, CPD, business ethic and more in its transparent and detailed judging process.

Once judging is complete, finalists – and the wider nail sector – are invited to attend the Scratch Stars Party in London, where the winners will be revealed.

Hazel Dixon, winner of the Scratch Stars Services to the Nail Industry award 2022, comments:

“The Scratch Stars Awards is a must for any nail tech, educator or professional. To be a finalist means that you have been recognised for hard work, skill, passion and dedication.

“The Scratch Stars Party is an unmissable event. It’s always so much fun, great for networking and wonderful to see industry friends in one place.”
