Rio UV Nail Extensions Kit Review

Today I am talking about my new nail equipment, the Rio UV Nail Extensions kit* which is available to buy from  The Beauty expert website stock a whole range of Rio products, which you can see here.

As you all know I love having polished, pretty looking nails.  I love having long, healthy nails and covering them in a lovely polish or drawing a cute design on them.   You also might know that I am a scientist and spend half of my life wearing latex gloves and as a result my nails are weak and brittle. For over two years now, I keep my nails covered in gel polish or have extensions on.  This nail extension kit gives the best of both worlds; i can add extensions (giving length and strength) while my natural nail grows underneath.

This nail set allows me to cut out the faff of going to the nail salon; it feels great being able to do my nail extensions at home!  The kit itself comes with a U.V lamp, clear UV gel, 100 natural extension tips, finishing wipe, grit file, sanding block, nail slicer, cuticle pusher, nail glue, application brush and step-by-step DVD . The nail glue had leaked a little in the box but it is easy to buy in beauty shops.

In one of the pictures above, you can see how my nails look with natural extensions on and examples of how they look polished.   I love wearing polish over extensions because it is almost un-chipable and it lasts for around 2 weeks.   I find that my infills need done at around 2 weeks, when my natural nail grows in.

The kit itself is good quality and I will definitely use it a lot.  I pay between £20 and £30 for a set of extensions plus polish, then £10 every 2 weeks for an infill...  This isn't cheap longterm!  This little set cuts out all of that money, and costs less than 3 sets of nails, what a bargain!  I know not everyone spends a lot on their nails but this one-off payment is definitely worth it to have beautiful nails all the time.  When I have my nails done I feel more put-together and I just feel better all round to be honest.

If you haven't had nail extensions before or are unsure how to do them, there is a step by step DVD guide with the Rio Extensions set.  They explain it much better than I ever could!  I will say though; it can be tricky doing your own nails at first but once you master it, you will love it!   I love my Rio Set and I'm really glad I can give myself extension manis from now on.
