RUFFIAN The Crowdsourced Collection

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.

Ruffian polish
Purchased

I got this with my BB points. The bottles ended up being small but what great polish! The picture does not do the colors justice. The one that looks bluish in the picture is actually purple. The gray one is actually a greenish silver. The other one is right on. Just gorgeous colors! I have never had an actual one coat polish before. This is one coat. It is the smoothest application I've ever had. The one problem - and it's kind of a big one - the wear time is typical. After a couple of days I put another coat on to get another few days out of it. It doesn't dry. It will be dry on top but will still 'ding' 24 hours later. So just use one coat and go with that. Still 5 stars from me. I never repurchase the same polish but I will get more of these.

LOVE

This nail polish is amazing. I love the color and I love the quality. I'm sure to purchase so many more in the future. It took days to chip away, which is surprising considering the amount of chores I go through.

Meh

I finally decided to use Hedgefund. It's a deep olive with a gold wash. The gold wash is a lovely subtle accent. No fear of glitter club kid. I was disappointed that it did chip rather quickly. I can't say that I'm a fan of this shade, but it works as a neutral despite being a dark hue. Summer posh when you want an elegant reserved color.

One of the the best polish brands available
Purchased

Durable, long lasting, vibrant and glamorous. You could not ask for more from a polish. To make it last even longer I went on to purchase the top coat too.

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.
