RUFFIAN

Birchbox Breakdown

NYC-based fashion label RUFFIAN is known for daring designs and groundbreaking style, so we knew their first nail lacquer line would be bright, bold, and totally irresistible. Inspired by the African violet, Delirium is an eye-popping bright purple with shimmering metallic finish—the perfect shade to transition easily from summer into fall. It applies like liquid metal for stunning coverage and wearability. Frankly, we’re deliriously in love with this one (we couldn’t resist!).

How it Works

This glossy high-end nail polish is formulated to hold up for days without chipping (not that we would expect anything less from this top-of-the-line fashion label). We dig the geometric deco-inspired bottle, but we especially love how easy it is to get a good grip on the cap so we can polish our nails with confidence and control.

How to Use

Begin with a base coat to set a strong foundation for long-lasting wear. Apply 1-2 coats of nail polish in smooth, even brushstrokes. Finish with a glossy top coat for a boost of shine and protection. If any polish ends up on your skin or cuticles, clean it up by dipping a cotton swab or small brush in nail polish remover and running it around each nail for a sleek, professional look.

Not my favorite
Purchased

Although I love this color, I found this polish to be difficult to apply and it required quite a few coats to look even slightly presentable. I then had to apply two coats of a top coat to be satisfied with the way my nails looked. I would not buy this product again.

Awesome Color, Easy Application

I really loved the color saturation and shape of the bottole top. It was pretty easy to hold, and dried fairly quickly. The consistency wasn't too think, which I've had problems with before. Overall a great product, but like with any nail polish, I wish it would dry instantly

Same ol'

I have TONS of nail polish under my sink, and this one is just like the best of the rest of them. Nothing really set this apart from the rest, minus the distinguished packaging that differentiates it from the rest.

Lovely

Such a lovely deep purple color! Polish applies evenly, and lasts about 4 days - more, if you're careful. Cute bottle as well, but the top can be tricky to grasp on the sample.

Pretty Polish
Purchased

Love the color of this nail polish. It is thick but isn't too goopy or sticky and applies evenly. It's easy to use the brush. The bottle could be bigger, though.

Love this color!

I'm so tired of reds and pinks, so this dark purple was excellent. The light bits of shimmer to the color is also nice. It lasts well too.

Great nail polish!

I borrowed this from my roommate who received it in her birchbox. It lasts a long time without chipping, and the color is so pretty! Gorgeous iridescence: in some light it looks blue, in other light it looks purple.

Didn't love the color at first..

When I first received this polish, I wasn't too excited about the color since I generally use more classic tones, however I have come to really like it for the weekend and special occasions. The color definitely pops!
