Children's manicures have surged in popularity, just in time for the communion season.

Harper Beckham (7, inset) was spotted getting her nails done in Beverly Hills this week, but little ladies here are also embracing the trend.


Polly McKenna of Pretty Polly's Parlour in Finglas is offering a special 'Communion Package'.

The package costs €40 in total, and includes manicure, pedicure, facial and hairstyle.

Similar packages are booked up every weekend, Ms McKenna said.

Laura O'Brien manages Sugar Dolls Nail Bar in Liffey Valley, and offers manicures for children for €15. She has strict age limits for younger customers.

"For Shellac nails, the child would have to be 12, and for gel nails they would have to be 16," she said.
