A nail salon in Burgess Hill made the top five independent nail salons for 2014 at an award evening in London on May 11.
Perfect 10 All Things Fabulous were recognised in the Scratch Stars Awards, the biggest awards dedicated to the nail industry.
Owner of Perfect 10 Lisa Comber said: “I am so proud of the girls at Perfect 10, we have such a great work relationship and are a fantastic team.
“Unfortunately we didn’t win this time, but we are so proud to be the top five in the country.”
The finals are selected by their application form, a mystery shop, qualifications, insurance, product knowledge, hygiene and service.
Perfect 10 was opened by Lisa seven years ago
She continued: “To make it to the finals is a huge achievement and something we never thought possible.”
The salon is opening a training academy in June.
“Harrods won the award last year so for little us in burgess hill it’s amazing, I would just like to thank all our clients for their support and encouragement,” Lisa added.
“When we became finalists I could not believe it, to be announced as one of the top Nail salons in the UK at this event is amazing and really gives us a massive boost, seeing and hearing our salon name among other famous names in the industry has felt fantastic.”
