Tropical Popical

Full RENAILSSANCE postcard pack



This photoshoot was created as part of The National Gallery x Tropical Popical's RENAILSSANCE exhibition, running in The National Gallery until the 12th September.  The Tropical Popical nail artists creatively responded to artworks in the collection and temporary exhibitions, resulting in mini nail masterpieces.  The creative team then worked with some of the best Irish designers to create looks to match the nails.  Get your hands on the entire collectors pack of postcards.
