I love painting easter eggs with nail polish- it’s my new fave spring project! If you’d like to see my first attempt here’s the link to my other egg. My first egg was decorated with just nail polish. But today’s egg has a few other embellishments- fimo clay flowers and beads on top!
I took a few days to complete this egg because I’d paint a section… then wait for it to dry. Then paint another section and wait for that to dry. I set the egg on a soda cap while it was drying. I also added some orange fimo clay nail art flowers and stuck them on with some clear nail polish.
Since I drained my egg before I painted it… it had a nice little whole on top which was perfect to slide a eyepin into (an eyepin is the metal stick that jewelery-makers use to slide beads onto when making drop earrings). I simply placed two silver beads onto the eyepin and then slid the pin into the whole on the top of my egg. I secured it with glue so they wouldn’t slip out. I really like the beaded accent on top- it adds a nice touch and almost makes it look victorian.
I hope you get a chance to do some spring crafts too! I can’t believe Easter is tomorrow!
