NAIL artists in Warwick are battling it out for four national awards.
Katie Barnes, owner of Simply Nails and Beauty on Smith Street, Warwick and her creative team are celebrating being named as finalists in the L&P Tech of the Year, Nail Stylist of the Year, Nail Salon of the Year and Best Use of Social Media categories at the Scratch Stars Awards 2017.
The annual awards, presented by leading nail industry publication Scratch Magazine are now in their sixth year, recognising and rewarding outstanding talent and achievement within the professional nail industry.
Katie and her team fought off strong competition to be named as one of only five finalists in each of the categories and will attend a judging day in May at The London College of Beauty Therapy where they will put their skills to the test on a live model.
Katie said: “To be named as a finalist in not just one, but four categories is such a fantastic achievement and we are proud to be recognised for the hard work the whole team puts in to ensuring customers always have the best treatments and experiences with us.”
The winners over the 18 categories will be announced at a party in London’s Covent Garden on July 23.
