These are great to use for a manicure clean up because they are very tightly woven cotton and don’t overload the polish remover, resulting in a easy clean up any excess polish on your fingers. How did I not know about these? I truly recommend these, and so inexpensive. I will be purchasing them again.
I do wish the wand was made of wood or paper fiber, but it's basically impossible to find pointed cotton swabs like this, so I'll just pretend I'm more responsible with the environment that I am :/. They work absolutely beautifully for cleaning up makeup mistakes or small detail work with nails, etc. They're worth it, for sure.
Finally I found some cotton swabs with two sharpened ends! Great for fixing makeup mistakes, and also for cleaning up nail polish application for people like me who just can't stay within the lines. I do have one issue though - the tips become floppy pretty quickly, and then they're not as sharp anymore.
