First, gather your supplies. A bowl of water, assortment of nail polish colors, and eggs.
Then, drop a few drops of nail polish in the water. The first drop will literally disappear, no matter how big it is. I think it creates some sort of surface for the rest of the polish to stick to. (After you drop enough polish in the water, it gets too sticky and you have to start fresh.)
Once you’ve dropped enough polish in the water, you can see it start to merge with the other colors.
Take a toothpick and run it through the colors to create the marble look.
Tip: This is where it gets sticky, if you’ve done it a few times! After four sets of new polish, the water was too sticky and the toothpick would grab all the polish together in a clump rather than spreading it nicely.
Then you’re ready to dip your egg! Find the prettiest area of the polish and dip straight down. You’ve only got once chance for this part!
Don’t they look so great and glossy? I love them!
I experimented with different amounts of polish, the first one I did the most (on the left, out of focus) and it was a little too much, I think. Then toward the end I tried it with very little polish – not quite enough for the marble look but still a light and gorgeous, almost watercolored look.
