Marbled Easter Eggs with Nail Polish

Supply List

– Hard Boiled Eggs

Step 1: Fill a cup with *room temperature water. (*see notes below)

Step 2: Add 6-10 drops of fingernail polish to the cup of water. The fingernail polish should appear to "float" and spread on the surface of the water - if not, then the water is either too hot or cold. The water must be at room temp. for best marbling results.

Step 3: Using the plastic utensil, lower the egg down into the nailpolish/water mixture.

Step 4: Raise and lower the egg into the water a couple more times to continue coating the egg with nailpolish.

Step 5: Place the colored egg(s) on a paper towel to dry... being careful not to smear-smudge the nail polish coloring until it is completely dry. Once the egg is dry, the process can be repeated to add more/different color(s) and/or marbled swirls to the egg if desired.

  • The nail polish will quickly adhere to the plastic cup(s) and begin to “eat away” and cause a hole to form… therefore it is necessary to periodically change cups/water out during this process.

  • I found it helpful to replace the used water with fresh water after each couple of eggs… the nail polish seems to disperse/spread out better in fresh water… and this helps to give a better marbled effect.

  • The more nail polish that is added to the fresh water, the darker the marbled effect will be.

  • Use only *ROOM TEMPERATURE* water for this project. If the water is too cool or warm, it will cause the nail polish to sink to the bottom of the water/cup. It is important for the nail polish to “float” at the top of the water for proper marbling effect to be achieved.
