rio nail art pens


rio nail art pens

The only nail art pens I have tried are made by the brand Rio, I don't think I'm ever going to use another brand. These nail art pens are perfect for creating the most detailed nail art you could think of, you just need a steady hand! You can get a pack of 8 from Argos for £25 which I think is a reasonable price considering how great they work. They so far have 4 different packs you can choose from, the original which contains basic primary colours, metallics, neon and pastel. I have all except the pastel set (which I'm really tempted to buy). In each kit you get a DVD tutorial, a couple of instruction booklets, nail inspiration, glitter, paint brush and rhinestones. I have watched the DVD, it didn't include anything I didn't already know but its good for beginners. I'm yet to try the glitter and rhinestones, the rhinestones are really small which is hard to find in stores, though it doesn't look like you get many of them.

The actual nail varnish is creamy and very pigmented, they are true to the colour on the bottle. They come with a tiny pin on the bottom of every pen which fits into the top of the pen to unclog it if it ever gets clogged with excess product. The striper lets you create incredibly perfect lines and the tip is for everything else. These defiantly saved my life when it comes to pretty nails.

  1. I actually love the photography in this post - the colours and everything look lovely.

    Im really tempted by this set, they sound good and ive tried a couple of the pens before from a different nail art set. You can find cheaper alternatives on ebay but i'm not sure how good those are!

  2. thankyou for doing this post! I really want these now! :D If you are wanting to get into rhinestones, then there are sooo many on ebay, and at really cheap prices! Most of them are from Hong Kong though, but I would say I've ordered 10+ times from Hong Kong for nail art supplies, and I have never been let down by them! :D
