Birchbox Breakdown

A good neutral is hard to find. Are we right or are we right? Some are too streaky, some too sheer, others too chalky—the list goes on and on. This polish fits the bill with its smooth application and full coverage formula. The nude hue is fresh, sophisticated, and chic—exactly what we’d expect from NYC-based fashion label RUFFIAN's first (and highly anticipated) nail lacquer collection. With RUFFIAN Naked in your polish arsenal, you can dare to go bare (well, sort of).

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 up by dipping a cotton swab or small brush in nail polish remover and running it around each nail for a sleek, professional look.

love it
Purchased

This polish doesn't chip. It stays beautiful for days and I loved the nude color. A little pricy for a little bottle, but worth it.

Safe for work
Purchased

This a nice nude color that I can wear to work and professional occasions. The color coverage is good and not streaky, and it goes on true to what it looks like in the bottle.

Great Product!
Purchased

The polish was amazing! It didn't chip for more than a week! Take that from someone who is hard on their nails. Smooth color application. Great except for the color. it was basically skin tone. I was hoping for a more pink color like in the picture. Great product otherwise.

just okay...
Purchased

I love this polish as far as consistancy, but the color wasn't quite what I expected. It's beige nail polish, nothing overly special.

Pretty neutral hue
Purchased

I like the neutral pink hue of this polish, and the formula works well and has staying power. Great go-to color when your nails are short/damaged and you want them to look pretty but not bold in color.

Meh
Purchased

The color looks a bit more lustrious online. In person, this nude tint has a shine, but less of a shimmer than I anticipated. It seemed to apply more thickly than I remember other Ruffian polishes applied to my nails in the past.

This color didn't go on well
Purchased

I received a different color in my box and loved it so I purchased this color and it is so thick and gloppy! It just doesn't go on well. I'm disappointed.

Nice nail polish

I liked this polish but wouldn't necessarily say it was amazing. Definitely smooth going on, not sticky at all. But it took several coats to get the finish I wanted. I tried "Hedge Fund," which is a dark green, so also not my typical color. But it looked nice when finished and lasted awhile.

Smooth application
Purchased

This nail polish goes on pretty perfectly. Great coverage after the first coat. I'm not a huge fan of this color, it looks a bit brown, but I've tried other colors by this brand and they're awesome!

Long Lasting
Purchased

I have used this just one so far and it is extremely long lasting. The color is very nice and subtle as well.
