It’s always nice to have some timeless hues on hand. Try the Ruffian Classic Collection.

RUFFIAN

Birchbox Breakdown

When we teamed up with NYC-based fashion label RUFFIAN to launch their first nail lacquer collection, we knew just who could help us choose the three high-style shades to feature in this exclusive collection: you. We asked for your color votes, and the results flooded in. This set of super-luxe polishes is fashion forward with a dash of daring—just how we like it. The high-gloss formula is also chip-resistant, so your mani will stay put for days. Now that’s what we call a team effort, and a gorgeous one at that.

How it Works

Inspired by the African violet, Delirium is a bright, saturated purple with an eye-catching metallic finish. Fox Hunt is a rich orange with a touch of shimmer—an updated alternative to the classic red. The money-hued Hedge Fund is a sophisticated olive foil with gold shimmer that catches the light just so.

How to Use

The signature RUFFIAN bottle makes polish application perfectly precise for salon-grade nails: its unique deco-inspired bottle cap is easy to grip for maximum control. After applying a good base coat, paint nails with 1-2 coats of RUFFIAN polish. Finish with a glossy top coat for shine and protection. Want to create the perfect RUFFIAN Manicure?

Goes on easily. Great color.

I always love getting nail polish in my boxes. I really like Ruffian. I find that the polishes go on easily and the colors are on trend. The polish does a great job of staying on my toes, but wears off my hands fairly quickly (average when compared to other brands).

Clumpy

I received the burnt orange color, really not my taste but I figured it my look ok on my toes. It clumped on the brush and it was like painting my nails with glue. I had to toss it.

Super bright colors
Purchased

I really am impressed with this nail polish, the color is bright and dries fast. I am wearing the orangish color, can't wait to try the purple!

Unique colors

This nail Polish does dry well, except mine tended to bubble more than others in warming conditions. The green color isn't very flattering on light to medium skin tones even though I like the color on the bottle.

Green color not for me

I received this polish a few months ago in my birchbox, I don't wear polish and just got around to putting it on (the green color) for St. Patricks day. I did only put one coat on, but it is really starting to wear off after 2 days now. The color I received is really not for me either. Although it did seem to dry quickly, I want to try in a different color but the green color is to "partyish" to wear outside of a fun holiday.

I really love this nail polish. It goes on great and very consistent. You only need 2 cotes for an even color. It drys quickly too!

great colors!
Purchased

I love all three of these colors. I was a little hesitant about the orange at first, but it looks great once it's on! I have light skin, and I thought all three colors complemented my skin tone nicely. The one, small complaint is that the color doesn't last long for me if I don't use a top coat. I think this is more due to my lifestyle though and not the paint itself. I work at a computer all day, so my nails take a beating at work. Also, I don't have dishwasher, so hand-washing dishes every night takes a toll on the polish as well.

Fox Hunt

when I got this color in my birchbox, I wasn't sure how to feel about the color orange. I figured since it was around Halloween, that orange wouldn't be a bad choice to paint my fingers & toes. this color completely took me by surprise - it is so beautiful on the nails! I was highly impressed with this nail polish lines, especially since the nail polish itself DID NOT CHIP for 2 weeks. at all! way to go Ruffian!

Why did you send me green!

I love painting my nails, but this green color is super unflattering with my skin tone - which is fair, but not pale. I have olive-tones in my complexion, and this nail polish made my hands look like they were tinted green.
Also, the brush was not a smooth applicator.
