So what are your favorite products? We’ve tallied the votes and are happy to announce the winners of the 2006 NAILS Readers’ Choice Awards. So many consumer beauty magazines and outside organizations give awards for favorite beauty products that we wanted to do something in the professional nail care realm. 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!)
This year we got double the responses we got last year. Ours are not “editor’s picks” or a “best of” roundup; they’re simply a fun look at what product 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). We published the list of nominations in the August 2006 issue and 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. And the votes for favorite new product were so plentiful that we’re bringing you the top 15 favorite new products for 2006.

Follow this link to see a compilation of over ten years of Readers' Choice Awards.
