This three-step guide to coloring Easter eggs is good for all ages. We suggest doing it in a ventilated area, nail polish fumes can be fairly strong.



  • Eggs. Use hard-boiled or plastic decorative eggs
  • Nail polish, at least four different colors
  • Plastic cup
  • Water
  • Toothpick or skewer



  1. Fill a plastic cup with enough water so that your egg can float in it.
  2. Add a drop of nail polish.
  3. Add a drop of another color in the middle of the first color.
  4. Use the toothpick to swirl the colors into a design.
  5. Dip one side of the egg into the colors and let dry. Dip the other side and let dry.
