Zen Nails

I was surfing the net and a number of things inspired me to do these Zen nails.  When drawing it out I had the idea to write out the words "Zen in the Art of Nails" like the old book title, "Zen in the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" by Robert Pirsig.  Nail art, like many of my previous hobbies, has a distinct way to bring peace to my life...even in times of chaos.  The tiny canvases that are my nails force me to focus and be very deliberate in my actions.  Even the disasters of nail art are an enjoyable experience:)

 The black unfinished circle is a symbol I found all over the internet as the symbol for zen.

Sorry, I'm so zen right now that I'm not even gonna post polish pics along with this so I'll list them!

OPI Planks a Lot
SC Snow Me White
WnW Ebony Hates Chris
SC Nirvana

On the ring finger, I used the pebble design from BM plate 211 and dotted the image with Nirvana and Ebony Hates Chris for a multicolor look to the stones.

Hope you like:)
