Quite often nail artist are using wet wooden stick – but for applying to the face the grip is often too weak. The wax tool is a bit better option…sometimes loosing the grip on crystals. Unfortunately this tool is not working well with crystals that are cone-shaped… also I have to mention that wax stick lives often white wax marks on crystal surface.
After having the brain storm with other Make-Up Artists – I found solution!
Blue tack tip! If you shape tiny ball of blue tack and secure it on thin end of your brush/nail stick. This works perfect to any crystals and will not lives any traces or marks on top.
