Four years ago when we started honoring your favorite product manufacturers, we never knew how loyal nail technicians could be to their favorite products. Unlike so many of the consumer beauty awards, NAILS offers a look at what nail care professionals think about the products used in salons every day. And what could be a bigger honor than landing on the top five list voted for by the people who are actually using the products? (That’s you!)

We polled our readership and heard back from many of you. Ours are not “editor’s picks” or a “best of” roundup; they’re simply a fun look at what products you and your peers love right now. We sent out nomination forms to every major product manufacturer in the nail industry. They nominated themselves (NAILS did not select the products for voting). In August and September, we sent readers online to vote for their favorite products. If your favorite products weren’t listed, you could write them in. Readers were not required to vote for every category.

Like in previous years, the votes for products were very close, so we are listing your top five favorites in each category. We’re also highlighting the top 15 favorite new products for 2007.

So what are your favorite products? We’ve tallied the votes and are happy to announce the winners of the 2007 NAILS Readers’ Choice Awards. To see prior years’ winners, click the year.
