Nail polish Easter eggs

Hello everyone ^_^/

this past weekend was Orthodox Easter. One of our Easter customs is dying eggs. Traditionally eggs are dyed red but in recent years more colours are used. This year was the first time I dyed eggs on my own so I decided to go all out and have a blast in the process. I decided to make nail polish Easter eggs!

Wanna know how I did it? Then read on for the tutorial.

First I hard boiled my eggs and let them cool down (it's definitely not fun doing this if your eggs are boiling hot). While waiting for them to cool off I chose my colours and thought of a way to make the eggs stand somehow so I can paint them easier. I found an egg display dish which was perfect for the occasion.

I prepared my workspace by putting kitchen paper on the area I would work on and used a paper palette and a make up sponge I cut into pieces for all the painting.

Using the sponge I painted each egg in a different colour. I chose a variety of spring colours as I wanted each one to be different. I could have even left them like that as they looked super cute already.

But I wanted to play more and spice them up a bit so I used glitter on some. The end result was a success as everyone who saw them was impressed. Also as the eggs became super hard with all the nail polish layers, I managed to break everyone else's egg on Easter night hehehe!

What do you think of this idea? Would you ever try it?

  6. Thank you so much everyone. Actually we didn't eat them as they were kinda impossible to break XD Instead I stored them to use them as decorations next year too.
