Nail Art with Q-tips

| June 6, 2012 | 271 Comments

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.

  2. Shamara says:

    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.

    I would go out and buy myself the NAKED2 palette!

  175. Xero says:

    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.

  177. Marianne Mojica says:

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

  178. Mamavalveeta03 says:

    This is tough: Probably one of the new gift makeup sets by Josie Maran or else the newest Chloe fragrance (the one that is green). Love both of them!

  179. Libby says:

    The first thing I’d buy if I won would be some more Caudalie skincare, namely their new vinosource s.o.s serum!

  180. Raven says:

  181. drew says:

    the naked palette

  182. Lisa V. says:

  183. Londie says:

    The first thing I would buy would be a Nars blush or a MUF eyeshadow palette :)

  184. Abby says:

  185. Maggie says:

    This is tough. I would probably grab a UD Naked 1 or 2 palette for a good friend of mine who has been wanting one. And of course, add some skincare products to the cart as well. =)

  186. Genevieve says:

    I’d spend it on shine-control products.

    Marilyn @ Lipgloss and Spandex recently blogged about Red Apple Lipstick on my face!My Profile

  193. Charlotte says:

    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.

  194. Wendy A. says:

    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!
    Have a nice day ladies!

  195. Melissa R says:

    I would probably buy a new palette not sure which one because I want so many but I would have a blast finding one!

    I would get some Tarte products. There is a set with clutch on Sephora right now for less than $50!

  198. Aud W says:

    I’d buy the Naked 2 palette! I thought for sure I didn’t need it, cause I love my Naked palette…but I went to Sephora and tested it…and had trouble walking away…so nice!

  199. Genny says:

    If I won a Sephora gift card, I would be like a kid in a candy store! It’s very warm here today and I’m thinking of sultry summer nights. I definitely need some bronzer.

  215. glamazini says:

    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.

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.

  220. Jennifer says:

    Tarte Amazonian blush!

  221. Ann C says:
