Easy Marbling With Nail Polish and Water


This easy marbling technique can be used on a variety of decor items; glass, paper, fabric and more. I tried it out on these eggs for a unique look.

To create a marbled look, grab some nail polish and water. There are several marbling methods but I tried the nail polish and water technique. Super fun, a little messy and surprise results. Want to try it? Here’s how you can marble just about anything with a few items you probably have on hand.

      @Phyllis tomelloso I haven't tried it on plastic but I think the nail polish would stick. Give it a try and let us know. :)

    Your eggs look very professional and expensive. Great idea of using the toothpicks and creating a stand to hold the egg while it dries.
