We’re used to moms-to-be using sonogram photos to announce their pregnancies, like giving future grandparents a framed pic, or posting their baby sonograms on social media. But there’s a trendy new way to tell the world you’re having a baby using those sweet black and white images of the little one - by putting them on your nails.
That’s right, people are getting sonogram manicures as pregnancy announcements. Beautician Sarah Clarke in the UK started the trend with one customer and it’s really been taking off. So many people are interested in getting Clarke’s “baby scan nails” that she’s booked weeks in advance and can’t handle all the requests for appointments.
But being the clever businesswoman that she is, Clarke found a cool way to serve even more pregnant moms who want her sonogram nails. In a Facebook post, she explains the because of the high demand, she’s going to offer the sonogram nail art on a tip for other nail techs to apply. That way the mama-to-be doesn’t have to wait for an appointment with Clarke.
You just send in your photo and she’ll sell you the sonogram nail art tip and your regular nail person can put it on. And if you happen to want to hold on to that nail with your baby’s blurry grey image on it, they have you covered. The post explains, “The nail will be sent in a presentation box so you can keep the tip as a keepsake, as many people have already asked for.”
