Hello lovelies! Now that Thanksgiving is over here in the US, it is officially time for me to start creating Christmas manis! When I was asked to participate in the #beautyQtips Holiday Glam Campaign I was very excited to share how Q-tips Precision Tips can help everyone create a gorgeous manicure for the holidays or any time of the year!
I really enjoyed using the Q-tips Precision Tips to clean up this gradient. They were soft and gentle on my skin and the stick was flexible, yet strong enough to do a great job. The precision tip worked really well to clean up without ruining my manicure.
I had never used the Q-tips Precision Tips for cleanup before so I decided to put them to the best test I could think of - a vampy red and glitter gradient. I started off with a base of vampy red. Once it was dry I used a makeup sponge to create the gradient (see image below).
After creating the gradient I was left with the mess below. If you have ever cleaned up red and/or glitter, you know this is not an easy task! So let's see how well the Precision Tips worked!
I used the Precision Tips dipped in pure acetone for the cleanup. After I was done cleaning up I used the Precision Tips again, this time to apply a thick hand cream to my skin and cuticles to replace the moisture I lost using the acetone.
I am happy with the results below! I will definitely be using Q-tips Precision Tips for more manicures. And, after looking at @qtips on Instagram, I will also use them to create fun eye makeup and lipstick looks!
If you would like to re-create this look using Q-tips Precision Tips, I used NCLA Rodeo Drive Royalty as my base and Darling Diva Polish FFF for the silver.
Do you use Q-tips as part of your beauty routine? If not, I suggest you try out the Precision Tips. I will definitely continue using them! Make sure to check out Q-tips on Instagram for even more holiday glam looks!
Thanks for reading and happy polishing!
