RUFFIAN

Birchbox Breakdown

We love silver and gold as much as the next gal, but there’s something extra special about the pink-hued shade that’s popping up all over the jewelry scene. This metallic rose gold lacquer from NYC fashion house RUFFIAN (available exclusively through Birchbox) applies like liquid metal, so your nails shine and shimmer as much as the rings and bracelets stacked on your hands and wrists. Shine on.

How it Works

We love how Ruffian’s deco-inspired bottles look on our vanities, but we especially love how the unique bottle shape helps us get a good grip on the cap for controlled, steady application. Ruffian polishes are specifically formulated to hold up for days without chipping, which is a good thing since we’ll be wearing this opulent shade nonstop all season.

How to Use

Set a smooth foundation with a layer of base coat before applying one to two coats of nail lacquer. Add a glossy top coat for 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.

Lovely color

I love the rose gold color, it's a great compliment to most of the outfits I wear. My sample was a bit thick and goopy and didn't go on as smooth, but I'm sure after some practice it will be fine. Also completely covered in 1 coat!

Love Ruffian polishes

Ruffian polishes cover well, don't streak, and don't chip, with a great smooth formula and easy grip top. The rose gold color is totally on trend right now. Very happy!

Fun color but it did streak

I liked the color and it dried fast! However, it did leave some streaks. Perhaps that was due to my mistake.

Chips Easy

I adore this color. It looks beautiful on my nail and compliments my hair and skin tone. Unfortunately it seems to chip a lot. I might bring it to my nail salon and see how it fares with a professional.

Not for me

I really don't like the color or texture. And it left grid like lines on my nails.
