SugarDolls Nail Bar & Salon


SugarDolls Nail Bar & Salon was established in one of Ireland’s premier shopping malls, Liffey Valley Shopping Centre in 2012. A glamorous and trend-setting lady in the Irish beauty sector founded the business after seeing an opportunity to bring affordable and luxurious nail care and beauty treatments to the Irish and International market. The emphasis has been on the quality of the professional staff employed at SugarDolls, both technical and customer-friendly, as well as creating a hygienic, beautiful and ambient environment for customers to relax and enjoy their beauty treatments.

We thought of a place where the ordinary world – the world that says ‘you don`t have time right now to relax and be beautiful’ – would have no jurisdiction. Somewhere cool and luxurious… Somewhere that offers the highest quality of nail and beauty treatments in a stylish, welcoming, friendly and characterful setting.

We are one of Ireland’s best-known and most successful beauty brands. We are also a family owned business with a passion for the highest standards in nail care and beauty treatments and creating and environment where our clients can relax and beautify themselves.....


Representing our promise to deliver excellence in our beauty treatments, products and overall experience, the SugarDolls Nail Bar & Salon brand is absolutely critical to the success of both our business and your franchised store.
Every time a client walks through our doors or sits at our Nail Bar kiosk they will expect and should experience the high standards associated with our name. It is therefore the responsibility of our Franchise Owners to consistently meet these expectations by delivering on our brand promise to every client we serve.

    The SugarDolls Nail Bar and Salon design and size can vary greatly and this flexibility gives a broad range of opportunities, depending on the locality of interest. Our store formats range from a small kiosk of just 12.5m sq. to a large 150m sq. format.

    The store formats include a Nail Bar only model, or a Nail Bar & Salon, which allows for additional beauty treatments like Pedicures, Spray Tanning, Waxing, Lashes and Eye Care. The majority of SugarDolls Nail Bars and Salons are located on the high street, in shopping malls and in travel retail locations. Location is paramount to success, and given the demand to offer beauty services, high footfall locations are essential where people are shopping, impulse buying and gifting.

    Each store is a beautifully, modern custom designed Nail Bar & Salon that provides an elegant surrounding full of character where our customers can sit back, relax and enjoy the SugarDolls experience. All our locations are built to the highest standards using premium materials so they maintain their quality.
