Alphabet Nail Art Challenge: U for Unicorn

Hi Guys! Guess what I have for you today, my continuation of the Alphabet Nail Art Challenge. I can't believe I've forgotten it. With all the holiday nail art ideas, I'm back again in a rot an remembered my unfinished challenge. So for todays Alphabet Nail art Challenge is U for Unicorn. 
 I honestly had no idea what to do for this challenge. It all came to me naturally when I found my Art Club Pastel Collection I purchased a year ago. Adding the florals and the illusion of sparkles, was like the cherry on top. I have to say I loved how girly it looks. So let's get to it:

For the base, I applied two coats of Revlon Pastel Punk Expressionist Grey. Once the polish dried, I first added several florals, leaving the middle and finger for the unicorn. I used Art Club's pastel colors Lavender, Pink Pastel, Sky Blue and Pastel Blue. I also used acrylic white paint for some of the dots and sparkly stars. 
Now for the unicorn, I have to admitted I felt like I was cheating on my poor ol' white polishes. But in all  honestly, acrylic paint are soo much easier to use. I drew the unicorn by using Reeves acrylic paint Titanium White, with a nail art brush. Which is the only brand I've ever purchased since I was in college and very loyal to it. Then I colored in the flowing hair with Art Club Pastel colors. 
Lastly, I then sealed the designs with Duri- Super Fast Dry Through Top Coat, that's it! Overall I really loved how they came out. Most of all the color combinations were my favorite. Getting ready for spring!
Hope all of you enjoyed my post today!
