I'm having trouble to figure out meaningful parameter settings for the unicorn primitive operator.

It's mainly about the hoofs:

  • should I make them two-toed or four?
  • Is a head-to-toe ratio of 3:1 realistic?
  • there is no option to add nail polish, can anyone share a node setup for pink glitter, but also a decent subsurface scattering?

Bonus question: How many horn spins do you like the most?

    $\begingroup$ Closed because unicorns... This question appears to be off-topic because it is not a real question. It was a Apirl first joke, and there is no unicorn primitive operator in blender. $\endgroup$ – David May 2 '14 at 15:12

Here is a nail polish shader you can use. I am no make-up artist but I believe it should looks something like this. It does not use SSS but it does render on the GPU.
