Wordless Book Variation - Nail Polish

by Sylvia Chua


Based on the same colors as the popular Wordless Book, this gospel presentation idea uses nail polish to share the message of salvation with children.

When Jesus taught his first disciples, he used things they were familiar with, like sheep, fish and bread. We can follow in Jesus’ footsteps by using items that children are familiar with to share with them the gospel message.

Nail polish is popular not just with adults, but also with younger girls.

Use nail polish as a variation to the popular child evangelism tool – The Wordless Book – to share the message of salvation with girls.


  • Nail polish – gold (or yellow), black, red, white and green


  • Girls aged 5 to 12

The Wordless Book was first used by Charles Spurgeon in 1866, and it has become a very popular tool used all over the world to present the gospel to children.

This book of colored pages is not only extremely easy to use, it’s also very effective in communicating the message of salvation through Jesus Christ.

What to Say

Share the gospel with the children in the same way as you would using The Wordless Book, except that instead of using the colored pages, use colored nail polish.

What to Do

Paint your own fingernails as you share the gospel message using the same points as the Wordless Book.

You may want to paint the girls’ nails as you go along, or allow them to paint their own nails. However, depending on the girls’ age the size of the group, this may be disruptive to your gospel presentation. One alternative to consider is to paint the girls’ nails only after you finish your gospel presentation.

1 Paint your Pinky fingernail gold (or yellow).
This represents heaven and corresponds to the gold color of The Wordless Book.


2 Paint your Ring fingernail black.
This represents sin and corresponds to the black color of The Wordless Book.


3 Paint your Middle fingernail red.
This represents the blood of Jesus and corresponds to the red color of The Wordless Book.


4 Paint your Index fingernail white.
This represents a clean heart and corresponds to the white color of The Wordless Book.


5 Paint your Thumb nail green.
This represents growth and corresponds to the green color of The Wordless Book.
