Matte-ify your manicure with RUFFIAN Matte Coat.

RUFFIAN

Birchbox Breakdown

The fashion world is gaga for Ruffian, so we’re not surprised that their signature runway mani has a cult following all its own. The crescent moon-inspired shape (which sits at the base of the nail: think upside-down French manicure) is edgy, unexpected, and totally on-trend. But if you’re anything like us, your hands are a little too shaky to pull off flawless nail art. Don’t despair: RUFFIAN manicure stencils are here. Get ready to rock this runway look—steady hand not required.

How it Works

Packaged in a little black matchbook, this kit includes stencil stickers in five sizes to fit each nail for sleek results. Whether you’re a nail art newbie or a polish aficionado, you can make this mani happen.

How to Use

Start with the RUFFIAN Gesso Base Coat, then paint each nail with the RUFFIAN lacquer of your choice. Apply the RUFFIAN Varnish Top Coat and let nails dry completely. Place a circular sticker on each nail, leaving the crescent shape along your cuticle exposed. Use a contrasting color (try a metallic or bold hue) to fill in the exposed crescent. Carefully remove the sticker while accent polish is still wet. Let your nails dry and follow up with the Varnish Top Coat for extra shine and protection.

So easy to use
Purchased

These give you a perfect moon mani!! Makes it easy and doesn't peel off polish like paper reinforces can. Great idea for a mom to be basket...and cheap too

Bah!
Purchased

Hard to use! Peel off is difficult. Requires trimming to use on most nails. A waste of money. My dots from the craft store work better.

Fun way to do your own nails
Purchased

I love to do my nails at home and create fun patterns. The stickers adhere nicely and make it easy to create patterns. They are not reusable.

I am a sucker for all things nails and this mani set is nothing short of awesome! It's easy to apply and totally fun to wear. The price is so fair that this would make a great item to add to any gift. This is definitely going to be added to many more orders that I place!

easy way to get the ruffian manicure. The downside to these is that sometimes they pull your nail polish off underneath them

Work OK
Purchased

These work OK but don't have a really strong adhesive so there is some bleed under the sticker. The sizes also didn't work well for my nails. But for a quick mani they work.

keeps the promises
Purchased

It does give a cool matte finish. It's great. It does dry fast and you can't do a second coat really.

Not Very Easy to Use
Purchased

Steady hand actually is required. Love the look, but it wasn't as easy as I'd hoped it would be. My nails are pretty curved so I had a hard time getting the stickers to stick and thus polish slipped under the sticker. Might be cooler to actually cut the stickers to the right shape and just leave them on over top of a painted nail.

Multipurpose Fun
Purchased

When I found myself bored with my solid colored nails, I turned to this stencil kit for an easy upgrade. Although it took a minute to settle on a size (many options available), it was simple to peel and stick. And stick they do! No bleed through or lifting. The hardest part was waiting for the color to dry so I could reveal my 'runway look'!
