Southern Living magazine posted on Instagram an easy method for coloring easter eggs using nail polish drizzled in room temperature water. I had some old purple nail polish (don’t judge), so I thought I’d try it.
I think they turned out pretty! I wouldn’t want to eat the eggs, because I’m afraid the nail polish will alter the flavor of the eggs and make then not so great to consume. But for decorative purposes, I think they’re pretty cool and they were super easy.
Put water in a plastic container you plan to toss anyway (I used a lunchmeat container) and let it sit until it’s room temperature. Drizzle nail polish into the water. With a plastic fork or spoon dip the egg until it’s coated in swirls. Remove it and dry it on a rack. If you have them, wear disposable gloves to keep the polish off your fingers. I didn’t have any disposable gloves, so I just wiped my fingers with nail polish remover when I was done. I also had to use nail polish remover to clean the polish off the drying rack. It was quick and easy. Here is another photo of the eggs I colored.
So dig through that drawer where you keep all those old bottles of nail polish, or go to the dollar store and find a cheap spring color or three and have fun with this method!
