The suprising beauty tool you never thought to use. 

Easter is nearly upon us, which means it’s time to bust out those hardboiled eggs (check out our foolproof method if you haven’t already) and start decorating. This year, we’re skipping the Paas and heading to our beauty stash to create marbled-looking eggs that we know will be all the rage with Mr. Floppy Ears. The best part? We bet you already have all the materials on-hand.

Here’s what you’ll need:
Disposable plastic container
Plastic fork
Disposable gloves
Hard boiled eggs
Nail polish
Water
Egg carton (for drying eggs)

Here’s how to do it:
Start by filling a plastic container with room temperature water. The water temperature is important—cold water will cause the nail polish to sink to the bottom.

We opted for blue nail polish for these eggs because we love anything and everything blue and white, but feel free to use whatever color (or colors!) you like. Add a few drops of polish to the water and swirl around with your fork. Drop in one egg and give it a swirl or two before lifting out and placing on your drying carton. Repeat with the remainder of your eggs, adding a few more drops of polish to the water as necessary between eggs.

If you want to give some of the eggs a bit of extra pizzazz, sprinkle on a little glitter. We recommend opting for silver glitter if you’re keeping with our navy and white color scheme—it will provide just the right amount of shimmer. No need to douse all the eggs in sparkly stuff, just a few eggs are all you need to create added interest in your Easter egg display.
