WE asked and you answered in your numbers.

As part of our ‘The Best of 2022’ competition, we wanted to know who does the best nails.

It could have been a salon or a technician that does nails best in your eyes,

It was no easy feat narrowing it down, but thanks to your votes in the newspaper, online and on social media we whittled it down to a shortlist of just seven who stood out from the rest in your eyes.

Now we need your help to choose an overall Best For Nails winner from our shortlist (in no particular order) and why they are your favourite.

And there are three ways to vote:

1. Search for the Best Of post on our Warrington Guardian Facebook 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 Warrington Guardian (May 5 edition) and fill in the entry form = 5 votes

(*NB For newspaper entries, email a screenshot of the completed entry form to competition@nqnw.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.

We will be announcing the winner next week, and keep an eye out for our next Best Of appeal on our social media pages on Friday when we will be asking readers which the best pub is.
