Nail Art with Q-tips

Sooooo remember when I did that post about moving? Yeah well, before and after said move, 6 out of 10 of my nails broke off. 6, y’all. And I mourned each lost. I love me some nail polish and took great pride in my long and pointy nails. But all things must come to an end and I’ve been learning how to love my nubs. Especially since I’ve learned how to make them all fancy using Q-tips Precision Tips.

Yeah noooo. My obsession with these Q-tips have yet to cease. But thanks for asking. If you are a no frills kind of gal when it comes to nail art, you’ll love this look. It’s simple, don’t require a Ph.D. and it takes very little time to do.

If you’ve got some nail jewels layin’ around and want to fancy up a bit using ’em, Q-tips can help.

I’ve always struggled with applying these little jewels. Tweezers do a great job at picking them up but then I struggle with placing them on the nails. Orange wood sticks work OK but it takes forever getting the jewels to stick to them. Q-tips Precision Tips, however? They work wonderfully…

Simply wet the Q-tip with just a bit of water…

Pick up your jewel…

And slowly apply it to desired location.

The Q-tip leaves behind your jewel without any lint. Pretty cool, uh?

This is a sponsored post. Q-tips® product was  provided by Unilever, the makers of Q-tips®; my tips and usage suggestions are my own.



  • I love pointy q-tips. I’ve been hooked on them ever since i found a youtube vid on an easy french tip. So many great uses.

  • What’s the first thing you’d buy if you won this gift card?- Would probably be the Urban decay Naked2 palette. But I need more eyeshadow like a new hole in my head so probably a nude lip colour or mascara. Yeah, they would be at the top of my list.

    Hi Brittany, I found your blog through Phyrra’s blog. I’m in (West) Central FL too. I don’t blog but I love to read beauty blogs! Love the idea of the Qtips, sounds easier than trying with tweezers or something. I’ll have to look for pointy Qtips at Ulta, Sally’s, or Sephora!

    Oops, pls delete my previous comment. I meant to add what the 1st thing would be that I’d buy from Sephora if I won! I think some yummy philosophy Caribbean shower gel. Or NARS makeup.

    Anyway, hi Brittany! I found your blog through Phyrra’s blog. I’m in (West) Central FL too. I don’t blog but I love to read beauty blogs! Love the idea of the Qtips, sounds easier than trying with tweezers or something.

    The first thing I would buy with the gift card is some new eye liner pencils. I love to have bright eye liners, its the best when Im in a rush!!!

  • The first thing I would do with my Sephora gift card is buy some lip products. I always want to try lip colors but I’m hesitant that I’ll buy and won’t like it on me. With a gift card I can try a few and see what ones I like.

  • Lemony Licks

    I actually just use a toothpick, those with a flat-tipped head. They are great for separating the stones too, if you pour them onto a surface.

  • You know, I don’t know. I’d probably go for a blush, like Tarte Exposed or theBalm Frat Boy, then tell myself I don’t need any more blush, and then I’d look for a coral lipstick but not know where to start. I guess I’d have to do a lot of research to make the most of my money, since I’ve neve actually bought anything from Sephora and I’m not familiar with expensive brands.

    If I won a giftcard, I would purchase Caldalie radiance serum. The biggest bottle of it possible!

    Yay for Q-tips! Simple is always best. If you pull the fluff off they do great dots too. Use the pointy end, dip in two contrasting colors of acrylic craft paint and you can make gorgeous petals and leaves for flowers, swirl in a circle and you have a rose. Let dry and put on some top coat.

    Definitely the Naked palette.

  • Wendy A.

    MUFE aqua cream in #20 (blue) and an Edward Bess lipgloss because I hear they are amazing but I can’t deal with the 30 dlls pricetag I also have been dying for Ellis Faas Milky eyes but again just looking at the pricetag hurts-a lot!

  • Cindy

    I would buy the new Lancome foundation that I’ve been wanting for a while now! >.<

  • SusieL

    I’d buy the Buxom mascara I’ve been using – I love it but otherwise I’d replace it with something from the drugstore. After that, who knows!

  • You would think the Q tip could leave behind fuzz in the polish but I see you got that covered by wetting it. Smart! Thanks for sharing since I suck at nail art.

    • Oh I’m back … 1st thing I’d buy would probably be some Bliss product from Sephora :)

  • Vanessa

    If I wont this gift card, I’d go ahead and buy the Urban Decay Naked Palette. Been wanting to splurge on it, but haven’t made the plunge yet.

    I would buy something amazing to wow everyone at the upcoming wedding I am attending. I have been in mourning of my son and my mother who passed away a year from each other. My son was only 15 days old and my mother was my best friend. People have not seen me out in this type of setting in a long time so I wanna show everyone that I am finally starting to get myself back together and what a way to do that then by showing them that I can still look amazing even when it has been sometime since I have been seen as such.

    Your nails aren’t all that short, mine don’t even reach the end of my fingers. I wish I had the patience to paint them and make them look pretty, but I always break them when they are long and bite them when I’m nervous.
