RUFFIAN

Birchbox Breakdown

The fashion world is gaga for Ruffian, so we’re not surprised that their signature runway mani has a cult following all its own. The crescent moon-inspired shape (which sits at the base of the nail: think upside-down French manicure) is edgy, unexpected, and totally on-trend. But if you’re anything like us, your hands are a little too shaky to pull off flawless nail art. Don’t despair: RUFFIAN manicure stencils are here. Get ready to rock this runway look—steady hand not required.

How it Works

Packaged in a little black matchbook, this kit includes stencil stickers in five sizes to fit each nail for sleek results. Whether you’re a nail art newbie or a polish aficionado, you can make this mani happen.

How to Use

Start with the RUFFIAN Gesso Base Coat, then paint each nail with the RUFFIAN lacquer of your choice. Apply the RUFFIAN Varnish Top Coat and let nails dry completely. Place a circular sticker on each nail, leaving the crescent shape along your cuticle exposed. Use a contrasting color (try a metallic or bold hue) to fill in the exposed crescent. Carefully remove the sticker while accent polish is still wet. Let your nails dry and follow up with the Varnish Top Coat for extra shine and protection.

Waste of Money

My DIY trick is to use the paper enforcers (those white circular stickers for 3 ring binder paper). They come in cheap packs with a bunch and they work the same way. Also, there is less pressure to get them to stick the first time because when you mess up you just grab a new sticker!

Not effective
Purchased

These circular stencils are flat so they gap at the curve of your cuticle. This means if you don't want seepage you need to really press the stickers hard. Unfortunately, if you do this you pull up any nail polish under the sticker. You're left with a 'lip' below which you apply the second color, but the end look is not smooth and pretty amateurish looking.

Love these
Purchased

I love these stencils. You can do so many hot nail looks with them and the price is not bad! I will definitely buy them again, I love the look. You could use hole protectors for the same thing but these are perfect.

Works well
Purchased

I bought these for my daughter as she does her nails every few days and is into doing different designs on them. We've tried other makeshift tools to do half moons. She used these and said that they worked better than other methods she tried.

Love the idea
Purchased

I absolutely love the idea of these. When I used them the just don't adhere enough to keep the polish from seeping under the sticker. I don't think I would buy again. I've tried a few different times, cleaning my nails each time. It may just be me. ;)

So easy to use

These give you a perfect moon mani!! Makes it easy and doesn't peel off polish like paper reinforces can. Great idea for a mom to be basket...and cheap too

Bah!

Hard to use! Peel off is difficult. Requires trimming to use on most nails. A waste of money. My dots from the craft store work better.
