For Unto Us A Child Is Born~Special Guest Post

Happy Christmas Eve! :) Today I have something extra special to share with you. I have asked my friend Laurie to share her special Christmas nail art with you. The moment I saw them I knew they needed to be shared, they're beautiful and they're the real reason for the season. Thank you Laurie for giving me the opportunity to share this with my wonderful readers. Merry Christmas!

I'll let her take it from here, Enjoy! :)

Hello readers! Merry Christmas! For me this is a time to reflect on the reason to celebrate Christmas, the birth of Jesus. I know it can be a sketchy time for a lot of people because we want to do our best to be politically correct and not offend anyone. In the nail art world I've seen a lot of manis with reindeer and Santa, Christmas trees, Christmas tree lights and even snowflakes and snowmen. All cute fun and happy mani's. I was searching for Nativity scene pictures the other day and I came across this fantastic manicure done by Topcoatit and I thought YES beautiful! Usually I stamp my mani's using the various different stamping image plates but this one I did all by hand using a few dotting tools and nail art paints.

It didn't take me near as long as I thought it would and honestly it was much easier than I thought as well. After I showed it off to my nail polish friends, the wonderful Amber asked me to guest post on her blog today--she is a sweetie and really much more talented then I am! I thank her so much for asking me to share this with you! Without further ado here is my Nativity Scene manicure. Thanks TopCoatIt for the wonderful idea.

To get this look I used a franken I made duping Starry Starry Night called Natural Law. Then I sponged China Glaze Spontaneous over that and then Hard Candy Sky at the tips. I used Hard Candy Mushroom for the manger and then white for Mary, Joseph and Jesus. Gold glitter for the star and voila!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Merry Christmas!

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
