When a little boy paints his nails with his mum's nail polish, he discovers the most important thing of all: the magic of being his true self. As the long summer days stretch ahead of him, a young boy looks forward to his favourite time – painting-your-nails-time. He knows that when he dips his brush into those magical bottles of nail polish, he will find a colour to express his every mood and feeling. At times, his Papa frowns and says, “What have you done to your nails?” At other times, he says, “Why don’t you paint on paper instead?” But the little boy knows that painting his nails makes his hands look beautiful.
“A heart-warming, colourful delight, evoking hope that children will be allowed to fulfil their dreams of being who they are. Magic!" — Khakan Qureshi, founder of LGBT group 'Finding A Voice'
