UV Nails Extensions
Rio UV Nails Extensions uses specially formulated gel which reacts with UV light to create very strong, natural looking nail extensions, while your natural nails grow freely underneath.
Rio’s UV gel and UV lamp can be used without extension tips to create a strong protective layer, promoting longer and more durable nails that won’t split or peel.
The high gloss finish also prolongs the life of the polish for less chipping, so with the right maintenance and aftercare, UV Nails Extensions can last for months and months.
A step-by-step DVD is included which will show you everything you need to know to carry out salon-style treatments at home from the preparation stage to application, removal and aftercare advice.

What tips should I follow for successful UV nail extension application?
If your nails have very pronounced ‘c’ curves you may find it difficult to cure the sides of your nails. Try rolling your fingers from side to side when under the lamp to expose all surfaces of your nail to the UV light and cure for 4 minutes.
Remember, once the finishing wipe has touched a nail you cannot apply more gel without first buffing to take shine off of the surface. Gel will not stick to glossy hard gel, only tacky gel or non-shiny gel!
If you find the surface of your gel is pitted, this is often a symptom of under curing. Apply another layer of gel and cure for 4 minutes.
Do not use a polish remover that contains acetone - this will melt your nail tips and dull the gel surface.
What after care advice should I follow?
Do not allow water to become trapped under the nail and always dry your nails thoroughly after washing. Trapped water can lead to water mould, which requires medical treatment.
Do not use detergents, such as washing powders or washing-up liquid, or bleach without wearing rubber gloves, these will damage your extensions.
If the gel area lifts, file the lifted area and follow the infill procedure. Do not pick off.
Use a clear base coat under dark or strongly coloured nail polish to avoid staining your nails.
