A talented beautician has created an incredible nail art of a mother-to-be's baby scan photo.

Sarah Clarke, 34, a beauty therapist based in Stockton, posted a picture of the free-hand drawn baby in the womb, which looks uncannily like the real photograph - and so far it's been liked and shared 145,000 times on Facebook.

Heavily pregnant mother-to-be Stacey Donaldson had the nail art done ahead of the birth of her baby, the Daily Mail reports.

Speaking about the astonishing piece of nail art, Sarah, from Ingleby Barwick, who owns SARenity salon, admitted that she likes doing designs that 'nobody has tried' - and has even done Banksy's girl with a red balloon.

She's already booked weeks in advance and now she has been inundated with more appointments and has even had TV offers.

Speaking about her salon's sudden rise to fame, Sarah admitted she has been overwhelmed by the attention.

She said: "It's been mad it's just exploded. I posted the pic and by dinner time the next day it had 16,000 shares.

"I was nervous when it went viral, I thought "I don't want to read any bad stuff" but most people have been positive."

And talking about the viral nail art picture, she revealed: "I waited for months to do it, until Stacey was about due. 

"She's one of my regulars, they're happy to be my guinea pigs. She's just overwhelmed with all the attention.

"I can copy most things, but I don't know if I can do it until I try. This one was quite simple, I didn't find it that difficult."

And the response has been overwhelming, with her adding: "A few people have said it's 'weird' or 'creepy' but that's fine".

"I wasn't on Twitter, but I joined last night to see what was going on because people were messaging me screenshots saying 'well done'."

And Stacey is now inundated with offers, admitting: 'I was already busy.

"Now I've also had a lot of requests where people have lost a baby and they want me to do theirs. One lady wants it on her ring finger for her wedding."

Sarah, a qualified hairdresser, found she preferred doing nails so she started posting photos of her designs and it just "went crazy". 

"Hairdressing doesn't interest me, I'm just obsessed with doing nails now," she revealed.
