Tired of the cap. Can I paint on highlights at home without one?

I've been doing my highlights at home for a while and they turn out well, but the highlighter cap annoys me. It's hot and uncomfortable, and I'd also like to get my highlights closer to my scalp than I can with the cap on. Googling leads to contradictory advice. Does anyone here paint them on at home with a brush and end up with a nice result?

I use the L'Oreal Excellence Cremelights professional kit from the nearby beauty supply store, and have a bowl, gloves, small brushes, plastic clips, etc. Foils would be hard for me due to hand and wrist problems, so I would rather not use them. When I'm done, can I rinse off the highlighted strands together with the non-highlighted hair and not wind up with random bleaching of the rest of my hair?
If the cap is really my best option, then I'll keep using it. Thanks for any input.
