WHO is Best for Nails in St Helens? Who should take the title?

It’s time to reveal the shortlist in our search for St Helens’ best nails.

After launching our new Best of 2023 competition in the St Helens Star earlier this month, we wanted to know where to go for picture perfect nails.

In our first Best of 2023 category we were looking at the best hair salons, barbers and independent stylists in the town followed by the town’s most delicious pies.

Next up, nails were in the spotlight and after receiving dozens on nominations over the weekend we have shortlisted a top ten, who will battle it out to be named the best in St Helens.

But now we need your help to choose an overall Best for Nails winner from our top ten.

There are three ways to vote:

1. Search for the Best for Nails shortlist post on our St Helens Star Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages and comment under the post with the name of your winner = 1 vote

2. Name your favourite in the comments section on this article via our website = 2 votes

3. Purchase a copy of this week’s St Helens Star (Thursday, May 4 edition) and fill in the entry form = 5 votes

(*NB For newspaper entries, email a screenshot of the completed entry form to heidi.summerfield@newsquest.co.uk – please note that only original copies will be accepted. More than one entry can be submitted per person but you will be asked to provide your own unique reference code for each entry to avoid duplication eg if your name is Smith you may wish to write Smith123 or HS21! as your code. You will need to provide a different code for each entry submitted. For full terms and conditions go to Newsquest.co.uk/terms)

Voting officially opens today, Thursday, and closes at midnight on Monday, May 8 and we will be announcing the winner next week. The voting deadline has been extended to midnight on Tuesday, May 9.

Keep an eye out for our next Best Of appeal on our social media pages on Friday for the next Best of 2023 category.
