April Showers Challenge - Eggs & Chicks

Hello everyone :)
Today I have another April Showers Challenge post for you all! I really enjoyed thinking something up for this one... Eggs & Chicks! I've been waiting for this one to come up since the start of the challenge as I had so many ideas for it. However, i went with something simple, cute and effective :P
I decided I wanted to do chicks on all of my nails and use an egg for an accent nail, just to break things up a bit but not look too confusing :)
I used 3 coats of OPI You Callin' Me A Lyre? from the new NYC Ballet collection as a base on all nails. For the nails with chicks on I used 2 coats of China Glaze Happy Go Lucky for the bodies, Revlon Lunar and OPI Alpine Snow for the eyes, OPI In MY Back Pocket for the beaks and China Glaze Mahogany Magic for the tuft on their heads :) For the egg nails I used 2 coats of OPI Alpine Snow, followed by a layer of Models Own Disco heaven and one layer of OPI Don't Touch My Tutu over the top.
I'm really pleased with how these turned out! I've received so many compliments on them today which has really made me smile :) I'm really loving this whole challenge actually, it's pushing me to try new nail art ideas and I'm getting better with each challenge I complete. I'm looking forward to finding new challenges to take part in when I've finished this one. So if you know of any let me know in the comments :)
