Gender reveal parties are the new baby showers, and many love to share the news with their loved ones in creative ways.

We’re sure you have seen many gender reveal themes, such as popping a balloon to see if blue or pink confetti falls out from it or slicing a cake to see if the inside is made with blue or pink cream, as a way to tell to-be parents and party attendees the gender of the baby.

But, one gender reveal has taken us back with its creativity level, and we can’t wait to share it with you all.

Expecting Mother Unveils Baby’s Gender with Lion King-themed Nail Art

Expectant mothers are now turning to creative nail art to announce the gender of their baby. It’s less fanfare, more intimate, and you get to keep the memories on your nails for a few weeks – we absolutely love the idea.

Kimmie, an excited mum-to-be, reached out to her close friend and manicurist, @thenailaddict, to transform her regular manicure into a jaw-dropping gender reveal surprise. The result? A Lion King-themed nail art masterpiece featuring Simba and Nala with their adorable baby, held by Rafiki.
