Thought it was time to throw up a new poll... This one is slightly different as it allows you to tick multiple choices instead of the standard one choice.

Let me know which ones to subscribe to and why. This can help other members decide on which mags are worthwhile to get.

BTW: Remember that the vast majority (about 80%) of users on this site are in the UK so I assume that the results should relefct those choices (even though I thought it worthwhile to post other international rags).

If I have forgotten one... lemme know.

I have had Professional Beauty which incorporated Nails for a few years now, I`ve had Scratch from the beginning and I recently started subscribing to Nails UK........I wouldn`t want to be without any of them now even though quite a few bits are repeated in each.
If I had to make a choice though (and only if I really really had to) then I would choose Scratch

scratch would be my top choice too,would love to get a look at some of the international titles though,just to see if were missing out on anything and it would be interesting to know if the current trends are different elswhere. :)

I get them all as I would worry if I missed anything LOL. If I had to make a choice of only one then I would go for Nails as it was the original and as such my loyalties lie there and also because it is, in my view, synonymous with our Association.

But hey I am glad I dont have to choose and I can have them all LOL.

I get all 4 UK mags. The Guild comes with my membership but I wouldn't be without any of them - keeps me up to date on all news/products etc. I just love the beginning of each month when they drop through my letter box :D

Have to say I only get the Guild mag coz its free with my membership. The nails stuff is only a small section and usually quite basic but I am a beauty therapist as well so the rest is sometimes useful.

I think Scratch is the most up to date mag so far, I love its fresh approach to nails. I often ask my customers what they read and have had lots of praise for Scratch. Any mag that can breath a new interest into nails for us all is great in my eyes. What do people think of the charges for them all? Some are less value than others I think! Im watching this poll with interest.....Dragon

I have just subscribed to professional Nails, i did it when i went to olympia. Have to say i really wanted scratch magazine as so many people have recommended it to me but only had limited time at the show and couldn't find the stand unfortunately. As new to the industry haven't found my feet yet when it comes to the magazines and info. This site has been a god send for me. I don't really know anyone else in the industry to bounce ideas off of etc.

Do scratch ever do special offers on their subscription does anyone know?? Can't really afford to subscribe to all of them.

Thanks;)

:D :D
