Rio Nail Art Foil Kit
Advantages: Good idea, great patterns
Disadvantages: The glue supplied is rubbish
I first saw the idea of foils on QVC and bought a set of 2 for £10, expensive yes but they really worked and I loved them. Seeing these I had to buy them, they cost £19.99 and came with a set of 10 foils in beautiful colours. My favourite one was a very delicate pink flower, with green/blue accents, I used to do a French manicure, then put this over the pink area of the nail, looked so pretty. I tried this with the Rio set only to be quite disappointed. The idea is to use the glue on the areas of your nail where you want the foils to go, wait for the glue to go a bit tacky then, smooth over the foil, and peel off. It sticks to some parts but not others, the glue is a bit lumpy and it seems a little temperamental, no matter how even you apply it, or how long you leave it, it never dries evenly.
I have some glue that I have used in the past and have tried that, it seems to work much better, still a little touch and go but overall better than the glue included in the Rio set. Although the foils themselves may be roughly the same wherever you buy them, they are not 100%, I don't know if they are a bad batch or just a bad make.
Summary: Buy the kit but biy a different glue to use
