Again! Saoirse namechecks Dublin salon LIVE at the Golden Globes


If the people of the world hadn't heard of Tropical Popical after it got a triple shout-out on The Ellen Show last week, they certainly have now.

Actress Saoirse Ronan couldn't resist name-checking the popular Dublin nail salon on the Golden Globes red carpet in LA this evening, as she recalled the moment she heard about her Best Actress nomination.

"I was getting my nails done in a salon in Dublin and I had no idea the nominations were coming out that day" she told E! host Giuliana Rancic.

"By the time I was doing all the reaction phoners afterwards, I was sitting in the corner of this salon, it's called Tropical Popical, there's lots of palm trees and flamingos, and everyone was getting their nails done and drinking champagne around me."

Speaking about last week's Ellen Show mention, salon owner Andrea Horan told SHEmazing it was a dream come true.

"It feels like it's fake.The fact that she [Saoirse] was actually describing the salon was just amazing. It's gone mental since then, we've had people calling from all over."

Carlow native Saoirse looked absolutely breath-taking in a white Yves Saint Laurent number for her appearance at tonight's awards, showing she's more than able to handle the high stakes of the US awards circuit:

She was at the centre of some geographical controversy this week, as UK channel Sky News claimed her as "one of our own" when annoucning her BAFTA Best Actress nomination.

Presenter Richard Suchet today apologised for any offence caused:

Wishing our gal Saoirse the best of luck this evening!
