About Scratch magazine

Established in May 2003 by Scott Derbyshire and Alex Fox, Scratch is the world's leading publication for nail professionals. Its printed magazine lands with subscribers on a monthly basis, and is complemented by daily news, features and opportunities across Scratch's website and social media platforms.

The flagship publication in the Seed Publishing Ltd portfolio, Scratch has an unrivalled loyal readership and is dedicated to producing groundbreaking content for the professional nail sector. With its finger firmly on the pulse of the nail world, Scratch enjoys global recognition for its stunning visuals, trusted content and relentless passion to inform and inspire the nail professional both in print and online.

Under the Scratch magazine remit, Seed Publishing Ltd introduced the only awards solely dedicated to the UK nail industry in 2012; the Scratch Stars Awards, held annually to celebrate the achievements of nail technicians, salons and businesses within the UK nail sector. The awards perfectly complements the Seed Publishing Ltd philosophy of passion, achievement and uncompromising focus.
