Neon Nail Art / Tropical Popical Nail Bar Review

Kitsch, quirky and unique, Tropical Popical is my favourite nail bar in the city. Dublin’s answer to WAH nails is a colourful mash up of animal print, palm trees and pink flamingos, and can be found on South William Street - home to some of our best eateries and watering holes.

On every visit I've run into someone I know - this time it was the lovely Paula, one of the nicest and most professional beauty PRs in the business! 
If you’re not following these guys on Facebook then you’re missing out – they regularly hold training days where your mani or pedi will be on the house. 

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a cartwheel but I was very tempted when I scored myself one of these slots!

American Apparel Neon Nail Polish

Inspired by the d├ęcor, I was feeling experimental and made a beeline for American Apparel’s neon shades – a popular choice during our recent heatwave, I’m told.

Fun Nail Art at Tropical Popical

The very talented Clodagh – herself sporting some fan-feckin’-tastic studded talons – did a gorgeous job and added a leopard print accent nail by hand.
