Proper form of なさる - なさります or なさいます?

In Genki II (second ed.), page 168 we are given polite forms of some verbs, among them する with なさる. They have also written that some of them have irregular conjugations in long forms, among them なさる, which becomes なさいます. However, in the conjugation table says なさります while recognizes both as forms of なさる. At the same when I type なさります or なさいます into I get about 900 000 or 600 000 results respectively. Are both forms correct? Or is one of them just a common mistake?
