Dublin Nail Salon Got A Shout Out From Ellen DeGeneres

Saoirse Ronan was on The Ellen Show as part of her press tour for her movie Brooklyn.

While on the show she mentioned a Dublin nail salon, Tropical Popical, not once but three times. If that wasn't amazing enough, Ellen's show Twitter account gave it an extra mention, poking fun at the amount of times she name checked the salon.


Saoirse mentioned the salon while telling Ellen about how she was getting her nails done when she got the news about her Golden Globe nomination.

We spoke to Tropical Popical who were delighted with the mention saying, "How absolutely sound of Saoirse it is to give such an amazing shout out on such a global platform to a small business."


They also told us that Saoirse pops in every time she's home and gets her nails done by Chloe.

She even went there before the Dublin Brooklyn premiere to ensure her nails were on point for the event.


Ellen also couldn't resist the chance to poke fun at how people still can't pronounce Saoirse's name. She offered her a gift as a solution to that problem, a massive sign to hang around her neck which read, "Hello. My Name is Sur-Sha".

Only in November, Ryan Gosling was presenting Saoirse with the New Hollywood Award at the Hollywood Film Awards and decided to educate the American audience on how to say her name the right way. He said on stage,  "It's Ser-sha, like inertia".
