Hey everyone! How are you all? I'm so excited to have a week off uni! Although, I have 2 essays to write, so maybe it's not so much a week off, but at least I get to see my family and friends for a bit. Anyway, today I have a review of the Original Rio Professional Nail Art Kit. The kit includes 8 colours: white, red, yellow, blue, black, dark green, silver and a metallic pink. It also comes with a bag of rhinestones, a pot of gold glitter, a full bodied brush, an instruction book, and a step-by-step DVD. As you can see the box is full to the brim with stuff, so you're definitely getting a lot for your money. I decided to just review the pens, but perhaps one day I'll use the rest too! I decided it would be better to review each pen separately and then I'll give my overall views at the end.
Black pen: Good consistency, opaque and comes out easily
Yellow pen: Much better consistency than I was expecting, nearly as opaque as the black and not too blobby when coming out
White pen: Opaque but a bit too free-flowing, meaning it blobs a bit. Although, this may just be my bottle, and if not, putting it in the fridge often helps
Green pen: Opaque, great consistency, easy application (as in, it doesn't come out quickly) same as the black
Pink: Much too free-flowing and as a result it was difficult to control. Also, not very opaque as it's a shimmer polish, this was probably my least favourite of the bunch
Red: Opaque, although less creme that the others, but free flowing like the white
Silver: Not as opaque as I was hoping for, free-flowing but manageable
Blue pen: Exactly the same as the green and black
The base for these nails was 2 coats of the gorgeous NYC - Raindrop (which seems to now be called Blue Sky), and Nicole by OPI - Spring Break, with a coat of Barry M - Crystal Glaze topcoat on the latter. The design is all topped off with a coat of Seche Vite

If you're interested in buying this set you can find it on their website here although the pink seems to have become purple. You can also find them on Facebook here
