We thought we’d seen every nail art design on the internet, but we’re gushing over the latest mani trend taking over Instagram: Ultrasound Nails. The best part? It doesn’t sound as gimmicky as you think, and it’s actually super endearing.

It’s not unheard of for new moms to switch up their makeup and skin care routines when they’re expecting. Some products just aren’t safe to use, like retinoids, phthalates, parabens…the list goes on. But there’s nothing wrong with slaying the nail game before your little one is born. If anything, your bundle of joy will know that they have a fly momma.

According to Independent UK, this nail design was created by Sarah Clarke back in April 2018. That said, there are nail designs with the same ultrasound nails hashtag that date back to 2017. Either way, we’re glad it’s going viral now.

Here’s a look at some of the ultrasound nails taking over the ‘gram. Who knows, maybe it will inspire your nail design the next time you book an appointment.

We know gender reveal nail art has been a trend in the past. Of course, it’s easy to get a pink or blue mani, but why not take it one step further? Imagine using a heat-sensitive nail polish that changes color to reveal the baby’s gender. And when the baby is born, a teeny tiny portrait of them on your nails. Nail art can be such a creative way to express yourself…or your unborn child.

Bottom line, we love that this sonogram nail trend is a reminder that beauty can be fun and meaningful.
