Surrey Nail Professional wins Mobile Nailist of the Year at the Scratch Stars Nail Awards 2018


Surrey based nail professional, Joanna Tompkins of French & Drench is celebrating a triumphant win after being named the Mobile Nailist of the Year, sponsored by Nail Harmony UK, at the Scratch Stars Awards 2018. The most prestigious annual awards on every nail professional’s calendar, presented by leading industry publication Scratch magazine, are now in their 7th year of recognising and rewarding outstanding talent and achievement within the professional nail industry.

On Sunday 15th July, over 350 guests attended the Scratch Summer Party at top London Nighclub - Tropicana Beach Club –to celebrate nail technicians, bloggers and salons from across the UK. The night, which was hosted by TV personality Rylan Clark-Neal with a live performance form R&B/ Hiphop sensations Big Brovaz & Booty Luv was hugely successful in recognising all the incredible work, dedication and diverse talent the nation’s best has to offer.

Joanna fought off outstanding competition to be crowned the winner. She underwent a rigorous elimination process comprising of mystery shoppers and a dossier entry that was assessed by the expert judging panel. The level of skill shown by the record-number of entries this year was unprecedented, making it a real challenge for the judging panel to narrow the list down to just 18 category winners.

Along with taking home the sort-after gold trophy, winners will receive a gift from the sponsor and will be profiled within Scratch Magazine throughout the coming year.

Helena Biggs, Editor of Scratch Magazine said “We would like to thank all of the finalists for entering and getting stuck in with such determination and passion – Scratch magazine is incredibly proud to have you represent the nail industry!”
