Product Description

Product Description

Transform your nails instantly with nail foils!

Rio Nail Foils are the ideal solution for fast, statement nails without the need to hone advanced creative skills with a nail art pen or nail polish.

box contents

The Nail Foils Classic Collection offers plenty of choice with 6 different styles of nail foils.

Use the design chart for inspiration view larger

Also included are rhinestone gems and glitter to add an eye-catching 3D finishing touch to nail foil designs.

Nail foils are incredibly quick and easy to apply in just three easy steps, and it is possible to experiment with different foiling techniques by adding foils to part of the nail, or layering foils on top of one another for an abstract effect.

The included design chart has over 30 nail foil designs for inspiration, and the step by step DVD covers different foiling techniques in detail.

Get creative with Rio Nails

Prepare nails by removing any residual oils and old nail polish with nail polish remover. Apply Rio 2-in-1 polish, included in the kit, or a coloured nail polish as the base.

step 1

Step 1:

Apply a thin coat of foil adhesive to the nail. Rio foil adhesive is specially formulated for use with Rio nail foils. Choose to cover either the entire nail with adhesive or just small sections/ patterns depending on your chosen design – e.g. to create the gold lips, apply hot pink nail polish as a base colour and then apply the adhesive once the base is dry in a lip shape.

step 2

Step 2:

Place the chosen foil with the pattern or shiny surface facing up over nail. Using the hoof stick, rub the foil to transfer it onto nail. Lift away the backing film.

step 3

Step 3:

To seal the design, apply two coats of 2-in-1 varnish, remembering to cap the free edge.

step 4


How to apply glitter and rhinestone gems


To apply the glitter, dip the included detailing brush into the 2-in-1 polish, then into the glitter pot and apply to the nail.

Alternatively, to apply the glitter in a particular pattern to the nail, apply the 2-in-1 polish directly onto the nail and then sprinkle on the glitter. Allow ten minutes to dry before blowing off the excess. Make sure this is done over a piece of paper so the excess can be funnelled back into the glitter pot.


To apply the rhinestone gems, use the included hoof stick to pick up a gem and firmly place into partially dry, tacky-to-touch 2-in-1 polish.

To finish, apply two coats of 2-in-1 polish to seal in the glitter and gems. Remember to cap the free edge.

Getting the best results

  • 2-in-1 polish can be applied to nail foil designs each day to maximise the length of time they last on the nail.
  • Sometimes a part of the foil may not stick to the nail after application. This can simply be patched up by re-applying foil adhesive and a small amount of foil.
  • Experiment with different combinations of base colours and foils to get super-unique results! The foil will only stick to where adhesive has been applied so it is possible to create patterns.
  • Simply remove the foils by using nail polish remover.
  • UV gel can also be used as a super protective top coat to seal in your designs.

Helpful hints and tips

The foil isn’t sticking?
Foils do not adhere well to the natural nail. Always apply a nail polish base coat or 2-in-1 varnish before foil application. If the nail polish has not dried properly before applying foil adhesive, the foil will not stick. Similarly, if the foil adhesive is still wet or has not turned clear the foil will not stick successfully. Finally, if the foil adhesive has been left too long before foil application, this will not allow the foils to stick effectively.

Why is my nail foil patchy?
Nail foils may appear patchy if the foil adhesive has been left too long before foil application, or if the foil adhesive was applied too thinly. It is possible to patch-up areas with a new swatch of foil.

When I apply 2-in-1 varnish the foil looks dull and crinkled, why?
This is only temporary until the 2-in-1 polish dries. Some top coats react with foils - ensure you only use the 2-in-1 polish supplied.

Why is the foil rubbing off the edge of my nail?
Always seal your designs with 2 coats of 2-in-1 polish. When sealing with 2-in-1 polish brush over and cap the free edge of the nail.

4.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!! 14 Mar 2011
I ordered this last week and I was reallyhappy as it came before the delivery estimate. I ordered it then looked at the reviews and thought it didn't sound very good. People had said it was fiddley and hard to use and that it didn't last long and the foil didn't stick on well. I used it yesterday and it wasn't difficult at all to use it was really quite simple. It did take a while as you had to do each nails seperate. The foil didn't always stick but thats becuase the glue wasnt dry enough. I think people say it isn't easy to use and it doesn't work well but I think thats due to the user not the product! I LOVE IT!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars easy once you know how ! 12 Aug 2011
the instructions in the box say leave the glue to dry for 8-10 minutes but i found the time needed to be a little less. the finished results are good, but not quite as polished as salon foils.

5.0 out of 5 stars My wife loves it. 20 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase
I bought this as a xmas present for my wife and she said it was brilliant. It omes with a DVD. She loves the choice, is saving a fortune by not giving 40 to someone else to do them. She has had lots of positive comments from other people when used. This set gives hundreds of uses. She said its not that quick but no slower than going to the salon (but much cheaper).
