If you want to know about all things nail-related in the U.K., you turn to industry magazine Scratch (www.scratchmagazine.co.uk). In May, the most glamorous night in the U.K. nail industry’s calendar took place at the world-famous Café de Paris where Scratch recognized the industry’s best at the third-annual Scratch Stars Awards. “A Scratch Star is a sign of sheer excellence and prowess, which can set talent apart from competitors and boost profiles,” says editor Alex Fox. “The talent shown at this year’s Scratch Stars Awards was phenomenal and we would like to thank all of the finalists for entering and getting involved with such enthusiasm and vigor.”
