girl with the golden nails/pistachios
I am looking for a fairy tale about The Girl with the Golden Nails. It may be a “modern” fairy tale; I seem to remember reading it in a fashion magazine some years ago. From what I remember of the story it was prophesized that the price would marry a girl with the golden nails. All the wealthy girls gilded their nails, but a poor girl that picked pistachios (that turns the nails golden) became the prince’s bride. I don’t remember enough of the story to remember how he knew it she was the one.

Iran is the largest producer of Pistachios, so the story might be Middle Eastern.

Any help in locating this story would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
