Easter Egg Nail PolishTo marble some eggs with nail polish here’s what you need:

  • Eggs. A lot of them. Because once you start you’ll want keep dipping.
  • Nail polish in all kinds of fun shades. My Essie polishes worked fine this time, I think because I wasn’t trying to make a specific design. And silver polish was amazing!
  • A plastic cup filled with room temperature water. This is very important! If the water is too cold or too hot, the polish won’t work.
  • Toothpicks.
  • Nail polish remover. You’ll need this to get the polish off your fingers when you’re done.

    Thought it might work well with pollystarine (?spelling) eggs. Stick a cocktail stick in one end then dip in solution. Take out then use other end of stick to stand it in flower foam to dry. These would look nice in a bowl and could be brought out each year. Or pin a ribbon in to hang on twigs.

    If you can no longer find the wire tool that was used for egg dyeing, why not try to bend a wire coat hanger into the desired shape? I think this would give your finished eggs a more “polished” (sorry, couldn’t resist) look. ;)

    An important question: can we eat that eggs or the decoration is just for pleasure??? Very beautiful, I’d love to do it, but someone tells that we can not it them
