UK Nail Professional, Anna Lee wins Services to the Nail Industry at the “Scratch Stars” Nail Awards 2018.
Nail professional, Anna Lee, from Creative Academy London is celebrating a triumphant win after being rewarded for Services to the Nail Industry, sponsored by Sweet Squared,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, 350 guests attended the Scratch Summer Party at top London nightclub - 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 live performances from R&B / Hip hop 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.
This special award is to recognise someone within the professional nail industry who has over the last five years been dedicated to the growth and promotion of the industry and who has strived to improve standards and raise the professionalism of the sector.
Helena Biggs, Editor of Scratch Magazine said “The judges recognised the immense efforts that Anna has put into enhancing standards of the industry over a number of years through various projects, initiatives and education.”
Anna says “I am absolutely ecstatic to have
been awarded this prestigious award. This is now my 3rd Scratch Award in 4 years.
7 years ago, I decided to take on something which seemed impossible at the time – I wanted to change the negative perception of the SEA (South East Asian) nail techs in the UK. My mission was to create awareness, to change the way people think, to be inclusive, bridging gaps and showing the world that we are one community made up of many. Thank you to Scratch Stars for this recognition and thank you to everyone who has nominated me. I hope by taking this award has encouraged others to understand that anything is possible. Set yourself a target, work hard towards your goals and then one day, you will be recognised too for all your hard work.”
