DIY Marble Easter Eggs

My Essie nail polish collection has steadily increasing as I’ve gotten hooked on them over the past year as I loved the colours offered and how long they last on my nails. Not too long ago I got a package from Influenster with a few more shades to test out and I decided to put them to use to decorate my nails and Easter eggs this spring!

Materials

  • Nail polish
  • Rubber gloves
  • Stir stick
  • Paper Cup
  • Artificial Easter eggs that can be dyed or hollowed out eggs.

To create the marble pattern on the Easter eggs I filled a paper cup with water then poured Essie White and Essie Devil’s Advocate for the black and white marbled easter eggs, but by using one shade which I did with Essie Bahama Mama and Essie She’s Pampered you end up with a watercolor-looking finish.

After the nail polish has been poured into the cup take a coffee stir stick or something else you don’t mind getting nail polish on to swirl the paint around the top of the water.

Dip the egg into the cup, and use the stir stick to flip the egg over so that the nail polish gets on both sides. At this point, you will want to put on rubber gloves and pick up the egg and place it on wax paper to dry. Pour more nail polish into the cup, and repeat the same process until all the eggs are painted.

This is what the DIY marble Easter eggs look like when they are done. Each egg will have a unique pattern.

Make sure to keep the egg carton as once the eggs are dried you can store them in the carton until you are ready to decorate with them each year.
