RUFFIAN

Birchbox Breakdown

With hues like glistening sand, glimmering water, and a shimmering sunset, all the best parts of summer (and, thankfully, none of the hair-wilting humidity) make an appearance in Ruffian’s new polish collection, available exclusively through Birchbox. The polishes are perfectly suited for the lazy, sunny days of summer—and the gleaming colors will conjure up a warm day at the beach long after the cold weather sets in.

How it Works

The collection includes three beach-inspired shades: Blue Lagoon, a metallic blue; Endless Love, a metallic pink; and Sahara, a metallic nude. The high-quality polishes swipe on streak-free and opaque in a single coat—so you can spend less time on your mani and more time outside.

How to Use

The unique deco-inspired bottle cap is not just super stylish—it was also designed for smooth, controlled application for professional-quality results. After a base coat, apply one to two coats of RUFFIAN polish. Finish with a top coat for chip-free shine.

Too Cute...

All three of these colors are really cute. There's a pink for the weekend, and a light gold/tan color for the work week, and even a pretty blue for when you're feeling adventurous.

Great!

This set was perfect with the Modern Mermaid collection. The quality of the color was good, the colors also lasted a really long time with out chipping and the polish wasn't difficult to remove.

Fun Summer Nails

Firstly I love the shades, the blue especially is my favorite fun shade this Summer. More importantly Ruffian is great polish, if you have the time to do a full manicure it lasts much longer than a lot of brands but even if like me you are sometimes in a rush, one coat works fine and dries pretty quickly without using a drier.

great color

This polish holds up very well, my hands are constantly in
water or gardening. The color is awesome, will definitely be purchasing more when this sample runs out.

Meh

These colors do not say "summer" to me. The beige color made me look like I was missing a fingernail because it was so close to the color of my skin. I didn't love the type of shimmer in it, either. It wore pretty well, which prolonged how long I wore the colors that I wasn't wild about. I gave away the taupe to a colleague who has more of an olive skin tone. I see myself wearing the blue and purple more often in the fall, as these colors seem much more appropriate for that season than they do for summer.

The BEST nail polishes on BirchBox
Purchased

I admit it - I have a nail polish obsession. I own bajillions of colors from all different brands but Ruffian is the best. I got the purple in one of my monthly boxes and immediately fell in love. I knew I had to have them all. And I proceeded to buy every nail polish they make with no regrets. If you're hesitating, get over it, drink the kool-aid, and join the rest of us in the Ruffian fan club.

Love these colors!

Love this brand and colors are great for mix and match. This will last up to five days without a touch up. Try ruffian if you haven't before.

love all the colors

All the colors in this trio are great! The blue is pretty bold and fun. The taupe color is subtle and goes with everything. It really does only take one coat!
