Q-tips Holiday Glam Herringbone Gradient Nail Art

sponsored
I've partnered with Q-tips today to create my Thanksgiving holiday nails! I'm excited to share with you how I used Q-tips Precision Tips to create my Q-tips Holiday Glam manicure! It's easy to make a Holiday Look with Q-tips Precision tips. I actually use them all the time for mani clean ups.

 Here's the design I made for Thanksgiving using Q-tips Precision Tips!
 I started with 2 coats of the incredibly lovely A England Encore Margot, a silver icy blue holo. It's more amazing in real life, the photos don't show off the holo very well!
 I always use Q-tips Precision Tips to help clean up messy manicures! They just work really nicely for me. I was thrilled to be asked to contribute a design to the Q-tips Holiday Glam looks! Find plenty more designs on their Instagram page.

 I used the Herringbone design from Vinyl Quickies to help create this. And then I used a sponge to dab on a gradient of A England Virgin Queen and Queen of Scots, from the new Elizabeth and Mary collection, both stunning!
 You see how it creates a mess!
 I prefer Q-tips Precision Tips dipped in polish remover for this kind of cleanup because, well, it's precise! You can get in close to clean, without ruining your work.
For the ring finger nail, I used the "leftover" pieces of vinyl and placed them individually to make the reverse gradient. After cleanup, top coat and done.

I really love how these turned out! Even my hubby said they were one of his all time faves!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating! I'm so thankful to have been able to fly back to NY to spend it with my family! 
All the best,
Victoria

  1. Love the design you got using those nail stencils! So pretty. I really should try pointed q-tips like this. I've seen them but never bought and tried them before. They look like there super handy for clean ups.

    I'll have to see if I can find pointy qtips over here. I use a small paintbrush for cleanups at the moment.
