Easter Eggs Dyed with Nail Polish

Scouting around on Pinterest, I found an easy way to color hard boiled eggs for Easter decorations.

Steps for a DIY project that literally takes only a minute!
  • hard boil some eggs
  • add water to within an inch from the brim in a throw away cup
  • add glops of old nail polish in all the colors you have accumulated (yes, go ahead and splurge and use your new colors, too)
  • the colors do not mix, kinda like oil and water won't mix, don't worry
  • put an egg in the water, roll it around and voila! the shells take on the nail polish
  • use a plastic spoon to remove your egg from the water
  • put your colored eggs on a paper towel to dry
  • discard your throw away cup

A fun and easy project!!


  1. Pretty! I am in the mood to dye eggs. I must figure that out again! I have OVERDONE the Easter candy so I am in the mood for moist lemon cake now. Take care, Nancy! Happy Easter week!

  2. I just saw this technique on Pinterest. Your results are fun.

  3. Well that's a great idea! Thanks for sharing:) HUGS!

  4. Good to know!!!I'll try this next year. No more buying the dye!
