Christmas Nail Tutorial – Nativity
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you’re having a great day, celebrating with family, eating too much and opening presents!
For my final tutorial of my nail art advent calendar, I wanted to celebrate with the most important present the world has ever received! So I give you, my Christmas Nativity manicure…
Although we know that Jesus wasn’t actually born on the 25th December, it’s great to have a time every year to really celebrate him coming into the world to save us from the bad things we do and to restore our relationship with God.
In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register.
So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. – Luke 2 v 1-7
On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise the child, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he was conceived. – Luke 2 v 21
It’s so easy to forget about the true Christmas story, as the few weeks running up to Christmas are always so busy, but try and make some time today to think or talk about what Christmas really means and why we celebrate it.

I hope you all have a very wonderful Christmas and that you have enjoyed my nail art advent calendar this year!
It has been a lot of fun, but quite exhausting and I’m looking forward to getting back to some more random nail art in the new year.
