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:-)

  1. Personally, I don’t do my nails because it wouldn’t last out the door, however, I see absolutely no problem, biblically, with having your nails done as long as that’s not how a woman see’s her value. The Lord talks about jewelry, make-up and scents on women as making them more beautiful, if not over-done. (Like petals on a flower I believe, but don’t quote me on that) I guess, as long as you keep your “ornamentation” in perspective, and that it’s to accentuate your true beauty, not what makes you beautiful.

    I love what you did for these ladies though! At first it sounds silly, like this is the last thing these women/girls need, but honestly, they’ve probably forgotten what it feels like to be a woman and beautiful, and especially to great for interviews. If this is how you show the Lords love through your gifts, I think you’re doing an excellent job!

    • Actually I didn’t accomplish that task of going to shelters and helping women yet. But the bible does talk about adornment clearly and it says we shouldn’t focus on wearing fine jewelry or having fancy hair or fancy clothing and that we should be gentle and lowly in spirit. It says we should be dressed modestly. I only brought it up because you mentioned that the lord talks those things making women more beautiful in which case I don’t think I’ve read that he does but he doesnt say you cant wear makeup and stuff. I can always go back and read to see that for myself (I just realized you said don’t quote lol). But you’re right in that these things shouldn’t define us as women which is what 1 Peter 3:3 explains. Thanks for commenting.

      Grace and peace to you.
