12 Reasons Why Dublin’s Tropical Popical Truly Is The Happiest Place On Earth


So, unless you’ve been living under a rock, avoiding South William Street, or have Saoirse Ronan blocked on all of your social media outlets – you know exactly who Tropical Popical are and what they’re about.

They’re so much more than just your regular nail salon, they give us all the warm fuzzies, and so we thought it was time we told them how much we LOVE them – and why.

1. They serve you Lilt in coconuts

This is great for two reasons.

  • Lilt is the best.
  • Coconuts. 

2. They do Ride Of The Week segment each week

Celebrating the beautiful people of the world on the greyest of days when we need them the most.

They spread the love weekly to those who love themselves, and we like that.

An actual shrine.

4. During last year’s equality referendum, they gave out free Vote Yes manicures
