31DC2015 - Inspired by a book - Thelma the unicorn

With two young children, it's no surprise that for the second year in a row I've chosen a children's book as my inspiration for today's nail art.  This is the book that my four year old daughter begged me to buy for her during book week at school at the beginning of term.  It's called Thelma the Unicorn.

Thelma the Unicorn is about a donkey who dreams of being a unicorn.  She ties a carrot to her head and then a passing truck driver gets such a shock when he thinks he's seen a unicorn that he crashes his truck.  This truck happens to be carrying pink paint and glitter and it ends up going all over Thelma.  Well then Thelma becomes famous and everyone knows her, but then fame becomes nasty cause she no longer has privacy, and most of all she misses her paddock and her best friend, Otis the donkey.  She ends up washing off the paint and glitter, removing the carrot and walking away from fame unnoticed, back to her friend.  It's just an adorable story and my girl basically knows it by heart now.

The base is Picture Polish Fairy Floss.  The silver holo glitter is just some silver glitter from glitter unique mixed with clear base that I made.  The unicorn charm I bought from Hex Nail Charms and painted it with OPI Push and Shove so that it was silver and not gold.
