Birchbox Breakdown

RUFFIAN has brought the nectar of the Greek gods down to Earth and into our mani-obsessed hands. This metallic lavender nail lacquer from the NYC fashion label is exclusive to Birchbox—and takes your tips to new heights, creating the perfect mix of pretty and edgy.

How it Works

This high-end polish is specifically formulated to hold up for days without chipping, so you can rock your (streak-free!) metallic mani all week. An added bonus: The unique shape of the deco-inspired bottle helps us get a good grip on the cap so we can stay inside the lines while painting our nails.

How to Use

Begin with a base coat, then apply one to two coats of polish in smooth, even strokes. Finish with a glossy top coat for extra shine and protection. Clean up any stray color by dipping a Q-tip or small brush in nail polish remover and running it along the cuticle and the edges of each nail.

Ruffian for the win

This is an awesome color!!! The metallic lavender color is super on-trend. Goes on well, and the sample was a generous size. For a metallic it is opaque in one coat, without being gloppy. Loved it!

Beautiful!

The color is true to the picture and it is a beautiful shade of purple. I do not usually paint my nails because I am picky about the colors but I am very happy with this product!

Love lavender

I love lavender and this metallic twist is awesome, it goes on nicely with just one coat, there are visible brush strokes, but it does look good. It stayed on for a solid week and a half too. Love it.

I love this color!

I received the Ambrosia shade after requesting it as a sample. I love it. It has a really nice metallic shade that is great for the transition into fall. I also feel like the sample gives you many uses. With a top coat, my nails lasted six days.

It was nice

I had the really nice purple color, it goes on smooth and stay for about a day or two. Never long enough. It'll be a nice fall color.

Hard to get smooth layer

I've done my own nails for more than 25 years, and while I like the colors offered by Ruffian, no matter how smooth it looks upon application, bubbles appear, ruining the look of the manicure.
