Our talented nail technician, Nina Lewis, has nailed first prize in the Scratch magazine photography prize with Hair and Makeup by our equally talented Amanda Clarke.


Winner of the Great Scratch Shoot Out for 2019 is our talented nail artist, Nina Lewis. The annual photographic 'shoot out' created by the UK's leading nail magazine attracted fierce competition.

“The competition was harder to judge than ever with the standard of entry at an all time high," commented organiser, Kat Hill. “The moment the judging panel saw Nina’s image, we were all captivated. The entry was praised for its striking and high-fashion feel. Simple yet perfectly executed, the nails play an important part in the image’s story.

The judging panel looked for originality and execution of concept, instant impact, clarity of the photograph and nails, use of colour and lighting, nail finish and design, model choice and styling.
Contributing to that 'high-fashion' feel, was Amanda Clarke, our Hair and Makeup artist, well-known for her high profile celebrity work with film, fashion and music icons, plus her impressive client list of major brands and editorial work for top glossy magazines.
