Purple Crumpet Spring CHallenge - Day 21, Ducklings

Hi loves

Today's challenge was ducklings. I took inspiration from two Youtube tutorials for this, you can find them here and here. I used Color Club Chelsea Girl for the base (I grew up about 10 miles from Chelsea, and they're the football team I support *ducks rocks* so I had to have it!) It's a neon but I didn't want it terribly bright so I didn't use a white base coat, and it's a lovely blue without it, although if you really wanted it to pop I would recommend a white under it. Sort of squishy and it dries matte, I really love it! Then for the chicks I used Rimmel Lasting Finish Fruities Lemon Drop, Nails Inc Candy Orange for the beaks and WnW Black cream for the eyes. The big chick was drawn using the brush from the bottle and everything else was done with dotting tools. Then on the base of the accent nail I did some jagged strokes with W7 Earthquake White (crackle) to make it look like an egg cracking. I hope that's what it looks like anyway!

The edge of my nail isn't really this jagged and uneven, it must be the crackle...could do some damage with that! *evil cackle*

So there you go, my spring chicks/duckilings. I think they're quite cute! I think I would like a pair of knickers with the chick print on them...TMI?
