These are colors I made using my acrylic paint:
Navy: mix black & blue
Maroon: mix red, blue & black
Light purple: mix red, blue & white
Lime green: mix yellow and blue
Bright yellow: add white to yellow

NOTE: if you don’t have acrylic paint use nail polish in what ever colors you like just make sure they compliment each other.

Next take 2 in piece of tape and paint 6 sections each with a different color. And allow it to dry. This can get messy as you can see lol.

Next apply your base coat and allow it to dry for about 2 minutes then apply 2-3 coats of a sheer polish. It doesn’t have to be super perfect.

Next, brush your glitter polish onto a cosmetic sponge and pat it on each nail covering themiddle to upper most part of the nail.

Take the tape you painted and cut out different angular shapes from each color placing them on the nail in a puzzle like pattern. This may take a while at first but as you get the hang of it you will go faster.

Lastly use black and white acrylic paint or nail polish and make dotted oulined angular shapes overlapping a few of the shapes on your nail. Add your top coat and you are done!

I hope you like your Geo Pattern Nails! Come back for nail art tutorials every Friday.

Gace and peace ladies!:-)

Christian ladies: Nail art? yes or no? Your opinion

Hello and grace and peace to you all. So one thing that most people don’t know is that I have a love for the arts and I mean all art from performing to visual arts. And recently I have been getting into nail art. Now I know I advocate for modesty and I know all is vanity but it is an art for m it just doesn’t include the paper. God made everything on this earth for his glory and lately I’ve been struggling with the question of whether or not my interest in nail art can some being glory to God.  Then I got to thinking and realized that we can all have hobbies and even have jobs that are centered in our very interest but we aren’t to be engrossed in them to the point of taking our focus off of God. And also remembering that there are ways in which we can bring God and the gospel to the center of what we do. It can turn into a way to engage people and show them who you are in Christ. How? Be creative but stay true.

I recently got an idea to go to homeless shelters and do women and young girls’ nails and give them grooming products which would help the women especially to look well groomed maybe for job interviews.  In doing that I can also hold bible studies while there and talk about my testimony which would be relatable considering other women and young girls  might have gone through the same things and it could show them that through Christ they too can be delivered. Through that I could also talk about why modesty is important in the daily life of women and show them scriptures such as 1 Peter 3:3 which talks about hat modesty is and then show them how to apply it in their own lives.

So ladies I would like to know if you would like to see a new series on my blog showing some nice neat sophisticated and tasteful nail designs with tutorials included so that you can achieve the designs yourselves.  I know some of you might be the nail salon goers but I can show you some DIY ways to achieve that same salon polished look. Please comment or like if you would like that idea.  who knows there could be a few giveaways so please let me know.

Grace and peace ladies. God Bless:-)

Confess Your Sins and Let Go of Your Troubles

Reading Proverbs 28:13 this morning has allowed me to see that hiding your issues doesn’t help us or anyone else. God can’t receive glory from your hidden sins but he can receive glory when you confess them and give your testimony. Giving your testimony will allow others who may be struggling with similar troubles and sin to come forth to God and confess and hopefully God brings them to repentence. God uses us in his own way sometimes to bring others to Him and to help them see God in his fullness. And being unashamed of the Gospel (Rom 1:16) is one way in which we as Christians hone our courage that Christ gives us to openly speak about our deliverance from sin and share personal struggles He brought us out of.  We obtained mercy and grace through the Cross. Jesus took the wrath of God, came down off his thrown on the right hand of God and paid the price we as sinners should have paid. He said it is finished therefore we are free from our sins. So why should we hide the sin we fall into. It will only make us fall deeper into it and why should we dwell in our troubles when our Heavenly Father is there for us to lay our burdens down to. We are all weak and He is strong. We are small and He is big and we are all wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked but thats why we need Jesus. So we should know that we aren’t perfect BUT perfection is what we are looking forward to in our heavenly home with Christ our Lord. Don’t forget you are forgiven. Confess your transgressions don’t hold onto them. He loves you and will never forsake you. In jesus there is healing for the broken and mercy in the Fathers hands.

Grace and peace to you all.

Scripture of the day: Proverbs 28:13 “Whoever conceals his trangressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them shall obtain mercy.”
