Over the years, expectant parents have become increasingly creative and inventive when it comes to revealing the gender of their unborn baby. It used to be that a couple would attend their scheduled sonogram to find out the gender of their baby, but over the last 10 years or so, and especially the last 3 or 4 years, gender reveals have become as popular as baby showers.
Expectant parents now throw lavish parties where they invite family and friends to do the big reveal and celebrate whether they will be welcoming a little boy or little girl into their family. Gender reveals typically began with the expectant parents finding out the gender of their child by opening something to reveal pink or blue balloons, or cutting into a pink or blue cake, or something else relatively simple. Over the years gender reveals have gotten more creative with colorful confetti, smoke bombs and yes, even lasagna that reveals whether the baby is going to be a boy or girl.
Now one nail artist is taking the gender reveal to a new level by creating gender reveal nails, complete with cake and all, and the concept is pretty awesome. A nail tech named Marsha Lane who works out of Trend Setters Hair Studio in Cincinnati recently posted a video of her incredibly creative gender reveal nails and we can promise you that you've never seen anything quite like it.
"My coworker Sherice is expecting her second child. She wanted me to do some gender-reveal nails because she had never seen any before," Marsha told POPSUGAR. "She gave me full range to do whatever I wanted, so the cake is what I came up with." Needless to say, Marsha has some serious talent. "We used her cousin as a model because we didn't want to risk Sherice finding out what she was having," Marsha added.
Marsha created a manicure for her coworker's cousin that was complete with pink and blue polish and adorned with tiny gems. The word 'It's' was written on her ring finger while 'A' was written on her index finger. On her middle finger sat a tiny pink and blue gender reveal 'cake' that came complete with a candle. When the wick was lit it revealed a trail of blue smoke, letting Sherice know she was going to be having a baby boy!
Just when you think you've seen it all when it comes to gender reveal trends, people just keep coming up with new and creative ways to announce if they're having a boy or girl! We can't wait to see what people come up with next!
