Rock theVote![nail product]
108 | NAILS MAGAZINE | DEcEMbEr 2008
In addition to voting in this year’s national presidential election, we asked you to rock the nail product vote…and you made us proud! From Acrylics to Wraps — and everything in between — NAILS announces the winners of our fifth annual readers’ choice Awards.
Now in its fifth year, the NAILS Readers’
Choice Awards offer us all a look at what nail
care professionals think about the products
used in salons every day. For a professional nail product manufacturer there is no greater honor than landing on the top five list — voted on by the people who are actu-ally using their products!
We asked our readers to get out there and “rock the vote” and so many of you did just that. (We just hope you also voted in the presidential election!) 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 them-
selves (NAILS did not select the products for voting). In September, we 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. We’re also highlighting the top 20 favorite new products for 2008.
So what are your favorite products? We’ve tallied the votes and are happy to announce the winners of the 2008 NAILS readers’ choice Awards.
If you have any comments or would like to see additional categories in the future, please let us know. You can e-mail [email protected].
