How to Make Nail Polish Easter Eggs
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! Don’t eat these eggs, though. Eggshells are porous. The nail polish may affect the flavor. But for decorative purposes, I think they’re pretty cool and they were super easy.
Fill a disposable container with room temperature water. Then 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.
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!
