Colouring Easter eggs?



Can you eat the eggs with the nail polish on them? Or does it not soak through?

    Egg shells are porous. No. You probably shouldn't eat a nail polish dyed egg. You could still ingest some of the nail polish.

    I would only eat eggs dyed or painted with food safe dye.

    Here's a person who made nail polish dyed eggs. She says you can BUT also if you are not comfortable with the idea-don't. Her suggestions was to blow out the eggs so you only have the shells to decorate and scramble up the eggs!

    Hi Doris. I would pass on eating the nail polished eggs. Nail polish is not intended to be eaten.

    Nope. Nail polished eggs would not be safe to eat. Even food dyed eggs would not be safe if they have been at room temperature for more than two hours.
