Backscratchers Glass Glaze systems were a huge hit at this year’s Professional Beauty 2008 show held in London’s ExCel International Centre in March. The event saw the country’s top competitors compete for the chance to be crowned number one. Super Nail & Beauty, the distributors of Backscratchers Salon Systems products in the United Kingdom, came out in front with their top technician winning three major prizes, leading to the top prize — 2008 Final Championship Winner.

Elise Pilkington took first prize in the Northern Heat Championships in October 2007 using Backscratchers Glass Glaze Fiberglass & Silk Wrap System. She then won the Southern Heat Championships on March 2 and was additionally awarded first prize in the Salon Nails category. When combining the northern and southern heats point totals, Elise became the overall UK Champion for 2008.
