Rio Professional Nail Art Kit | Review

Hello Beauties! The other week I was a very lucky beauty blogger and was kind enough to be sent a Professional Nail Art Kit from Rio. As you all know I have a serious addiction to nail polish and anything that allows you to get creative with your nails. In the past I have always gave my best shot at nail art with make shift items found lying around the house and to be honest failed quite miserably. So when a lovely lady from Rio Beauty asked if I would like to try out the Nail Art kit I was super excited and thought that at last I would be able unleash my creativity and produce some fancy designs on my nails with the aid of famous nail art pen!

The nail art kit comes nicely packed in a small box (around the size of a DVD boxset). Let me tell you lovelies I was amazed at how many products were contained into this box when I unwrapped it all. The kit contains eight nail art pens which feature double ended applicators, a design chart of nail art designs for some inspiration, rhinestone gems, glitter, a step-by-step DVD, an information booklet and a brush to paint your nails with.

As you can see there is loads in this kit which can keep you entertained for hours and all for a bargain £24.99 which you can purchase at  Rio have four different kits which are available in their nail art collection - Original, Metallic, Neon and Pastels. Spring/Summer trends are all about the bright colours right now so I opted for the Neon Kit.

Like I said, I've never been too great when it comes to doing nail art designs on my own nails, but the Rio Kit has certainly given me some incentive to start practising more with designs. I was really pleased with how easy the pens are to use and with a steady hand you can produce detailed designs on your nails. 

Each brush has a double ended applicator which can be used for different design techniques. At the top you have a detailing pen which is makes a great dotting tool, and a the bottom you have a super fine line brush which can be used for lines, straight or wavy. 

 I was so pleased with how easy this was to use, especially the use of the detailing pen. The polish comes out slowly with a gentle squeeze of the bottle and doesn't apply clumpy. If at anytime it does become clogged though the polish drying, Rio have concealed a small pin at the bottom of each polish which can be used to un-clog the pen. The fine line brush was also easy to use, but I failed miserably when it come to painting my nails using my non writing hand. But as they say 'practice makes perfect'. 

The DVD did come handy, and I thought that adding this in was a lovely touch to the kit. It gives beginners like me a step-by-step guide on how to produce all different designs with your nail art kit, including the more intricate designs. 

Overall I'm super impressed with Professional Nail Art Kit from Rio, its great for beginners, nail art lovers and even the beauties who are a whizz at nail art already. I can't fault the brushes in any way and the actual polish that comes out is a true representation of what you see in the bottle. 

Being  a huge fan of anything animal print, especially the classic leopard print design, I really wanted to master leopard print nails. I used the black and blue nail art pens in the Rio kit and I am so thrilled with the outcome that I had to show you lovelies! 

I hope you enjoyed this review beauties, if you fancy getting this nail art kit or any other things from Rio Beauty (they have some amazing nail art foils on their site too) you can find it all here at-
