Android Card tabs style not working (overridden by ion-tabs)


I have cards embeded inside ion-tabs. Cards have tabs at the bottom for actions such as like, share and comment.

The ion-tabs are in one colour (<ion-tabs class="tabs-royal tabs-icon-top">), and the card tabs have another colour (<div class="item tabs tabs-icon-left tabs-light">). On iOS this works, but on Android the card tabs are always taking the ion-tabs style.

How can I force the cards to use their own style?

The image attached would make more sense:


More info: The iOS ion-tabs are light becasuse of customisation.
