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?

Awesome colors
Purchased

I knew I was going to love the purple and green but I was nervous about the Orange. Turns out that the Orange is my favorite of the three. It is an amazing color and great for any season.

Stays forever... not sure if I like/dislike that

When I first tried the red ruffian nail polish I was thrilled: it is really easy to use. The polish runs softly and it is more even than other brands (you dont have to struggle to get the salon look). It also lasted over a week without loosing its shine. I got a bit tired of the color and I decided to change it, and that is when the problems started: taking it off was very difficult. I am not sure if I like this or not.

Good color, that's about it.

I wouldn't purchase this. I do think its a pretty color ( Lady of the Night ) but it didn't brush on very well. Left some major polish clumps that were hard to get out. I also thought the design of the handle/brush made it difficult to hold, felt like I was going to drop it several times.
As an Independent consultant for a major nail company, I still like to test out other products and see how they compare... this polish just doesn't work for me.

The colors are really nice

I loved all the colors in the collection. The lacquer looks really nice on my nails and it seems like a high quality product. Itlasts a long time on my nails.

Great, trendy colors!

I received this as a free gift with my Birchbox purchase. First of all, to get three almost full-size polishes for free is a bargain.

I give myself a manicure most weeks and am partial to Essie (though a great OPI color sneaks in every now and again). Instead, I gave Hedge Fund a try this week. The color is awesome - it's unique and edgy, but still subtle enough for work. I'm not sure the gold-based olive looks great with my fair skin, but I'm rocking it anyway :)

The purple is gorgeous - can't wait to try that one next! Fox Hunt is a true bright orange - I'm saving that for my toes this summer.

Fun Colors

Beautiful fun color combination that is going to look amazing for New Years. It goes on smoothly and stays longer than most other nail polish.

Love Ruffian!

I've been kind of a skeptic of Ruffian since they launched their nail lacquer collection on Birchbox. I'm a devout Deborah Lippman fanatic, but sometimes $18 a bottle is just a little much for me. I got this collection in the mail last night and when I opened up the box, the colors didn't seem as "vivid" as they seem online. They are really pigmented, so it's nice that you only need one coat & the job is done. I'm currently wearing the green "hedge fund" color & I like it. I was expecting it to be a little bit more glossy than advertised, but a good top coat will take care of it.

My new favorite
Purchased

I am a complete nailpolish addict and the Ruffian polishes are my absolute new favorite. The colors are bright and this covers with just one coat. I love the handle on these as well as they make brushing on easier.

Great polish!

I love this polish!! It looks great & stays on forever! My sister-in-law received a Birchbox from me with a Ruffian polish & now she & her mom (who borrowed it) can't get enough! If you are looking for a long wear polish this is a great choice.

Actually Stay on!!

I was very impressed with this product! I paint my toes constantly but never my fingers but for a wedding I put on this polish. 5 DAYS later it was still on and looked GREAT! Highly recommend!
