Atisha & Je Tsongkhapa

First of all let me apologize for the state my skin is in. I had conditioned my cuticles and moisturized my hands, but on the macro setting on the camera it picks up the tiniest details and my skin looks awful. I'm not very happy with the quality of these photos either, but if I wait too long to take the pictures the paint job will get wrecked.
This set of nails represents Atisha, a great Buddhist master. The thumb has his name, the pointer and ring finger have Upali flowers, the middle finger has an image of Atisha in a meditation posture and the pinky has an image of a Stupa. I'm no great artist that's for sure. lol
The background colour used on all my nails is Avon's Celestial. Other colours include China Glaze's Solar Power, Rimmel's Sage All the Rage, Avon's French White Tip, Barefoot Beige, Pastel Pink, Viva Pink, Garden Green, and Tangtastic.
This set of nails represents Je Tsongkhapa another important Buddhist master. The thumb has his name, the pointer finger a flaming sword, the middle finger is an image of Je Tsongkhapa in a mediation posture, the ring finger is the side view of a book of Dharma (Dharma is the teachings of Buddha) and the pinky is the Dharma Wheel.
The base colour on all the nails is again Avon's Celestial. Other colours used were China Glaze's Solar Power, Sally Hansen's Golden-I, Avon's French White Tip, Barefoot Beige, Cherry Jubilee and Tangtastic.

I did these nails as part of the Weekly Challenge for the Nail Polish Queen's community here on Google+. This week's challenge is Saints. Although, technically we don't have Saints in Buddhism, we do have great Buddhist masters and teachers that could be considered saintly.
