Happy Easter! Meet My Nail Polish Painted Easter Egg....

Happy Easter, everyone! I know I'm late.
So this is my broken nail polish painted egg. I thought I'd turn something utterly useless into "art" before I throw it in the garbage.
Nail Polishes used:
  • Inglot Nail Enamel #721 (Worn here)
  • Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail Enamel #17
  • Colorbar Nail Lacquer White
  • Flower is from an old bra (LOL). I'd planned to paint a bow & decorate it further, until the moment it broke.


Mistakes I made when painting this egg:

  • I did not boil the egg first. It's best to paint on a hard-boiled egg, so it doesn't break. Duh!
  • I just started painting randomly, like a crazy person, instead of painting top half, let it dry, then paint bottom half. I think that would have been better when using nail polish.
  • I held it with my index & thumb throughout, when it would have been more sensible to place it on a round dish or something. At one point, I felt like Suppandi.
How I broke it:
I was holding the top & bottom of the egg delicately with my index finger & thumb. I finished doing the dots on one side, and was awkwardly trying to turn it ... then the damn thing slipped & fell on the table ... spilling slimy raw egg & freaking out Mr.CZ.

1 hour of my life & a 10 rupee egg are not totally wasted after all =)

  6. very pretty :). i used to paint on eggs with not watercolours but something similar (don't know the exact term since english is not my first language) and i found out it's best to do it when you get the egg from water when it's still hot - colour dries fast so no mess and if you make mistake use a tissue dipped in water and wipe it off. you just need something to hold the egg and not burn your fingers in the process :).

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
