This is the latest craze among expectant mums who want to reveal their baby’s gender in a trendy and gorgeous way, and that is through nail art!
More and more mums-to-be are posting on social media their different gender reveal nail art designs that range from cute to gorgeous.
There are no rules to this new form of nail art. Just a bit of creativity is all it takes. Have a splash of pink or blue painted on the nails, and voila, the surprise just can’t get any better.
Jessica Whorlow, 28, a nail technician from Beauty Secrets in Melbourne, said she can definitely see the trend becoming popular.
“It depends on whether the mum enjoys having her nail done but it’s definitely easier than throwing a party,” she told Daily Mail Australia. “I find the clients that regularly have their nails done opt for gender reveal nails. It’s a bit of fun and something different as so many mums-to-be choose cakes and parties.”
Jessica recently painted the nails of one of her clients who is expecting a baby girl. “The set I’ve done was purely pink to reveal a girl! In saying that, there’s no rules to nail art, clients can just have fun with it,” she said.
While some adorn their nails with glitter colours, sequins, stones, or the more intricate tiny baby rattles, dummies and toys, others opt to have the words: ‘It’s a boy’ or ‘It’s a girl’ painted on their nails as well.
Jessica said women who get their nails done share it on social media, so this is also a much easier and cheaper way to reveal the news to friends and family.
