Try your hand at marbling and add a trendy twist to your Easter egg decorating this year. Display as a centerpiece or add to your baskets for a boho look. Use any color nail polish you wish!
What You Need
Hard boiled eggs (white at room temperature) or white plastic craft eggs
Nail polish (any color)
Disposable plastic container (large and deep enough to dip eggs into)
Rubber or disposable gloves
Boil your eggs. (I fill the pot with water about an inch over the top of the eggs, heat on high until you see a good rolling boil, then turn off heat and cover with lid, let sit on stove covered 14 minutes, then run under cold water).
Let eggs cool to room temperature.
Fill the plastic container with room temperature water (Make sure the water is room temperature. If the water is too cold, the nail polish drops will sink to the bottom).
Put on your rubber gloves so you don't get nail polish on your hands after dipping.
Pour a few drops of nail polish on the top of the water. You can experiment with darker and lighter versions: the more drops you use, the darker it will be.
Using just the tip, lightly swirl the stir stick through your drops and spread out the color until you get the look you want.
Dip egg under the water and swirl around to cover the entire egg.
Let your eggs dry. I gently laid mine on a paper towel.Variation to the project: Mix different colors of nail polish drops together to give a more vibrant and colorful marbled look to your eggs.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the fact that eggs can crack during the boiling process and nail polish has chemicals in it, it is not recommended that these eggs be eaten. Only use for decoration.
