Mom- to- be ladies are setting a new trend!
Well, with every single passing year new fashion trends are set by people. Now, pregnant women are using their ultrasound pictures as nail art and we can’t get over it at all. When it comes to beauty trends, people these days are taking the metaphor ‘thinking-out-of-the-box’ way too seriously.
It is not restricted to bizarre eye make-up or lipstick trend, nail art too has become a hot domain for the brave ones. Yes, we are not joking. While some are pretty cool, like badminton champion Manika Batra’s tri-colour nails, others are very creepy like the one by the Chinese illusion artist, who painted her own face on her nails and even attached hair extensions! Not to forget the scary scorpion nail art trend. Fashion game is on! From bizarre to innovative nail arts are taking our hearts away.
Now, another unusual nail art trend is gaining popularity on Instagram and some are finding it quite endearing. Would-be-moms are painting or attaching photos of their ultrasound onto their nails! Yes, a black and white ultrasound scan carefully hand-painted onto an expectant mother’s finger is the new craze. Nail artist, Sarah Clarke of Serenity Hair and Beauty from Stockton-on-Tees based salon in the UK shared photos of her work on Facebook and it quickly went viral.
She later wrote on Facebook that she has been getting hundreds of calls and “is offering her personalised baby scan nails on an express tip for just £25”. Although her work created this huge buzz online, it seems the trend is not new. On Instagram, one would find 3D printed photos affixed to nails, something that dates back over a year.
While many expecting mothers are thrilled about it and are considering it as a keepsake, others are quite apprehensive. If you are one who is expecting a little one then definitely go for it.
