RUFFIAN Nail Lacquer - RUFFIAN Red

There are some things that will never go out of style: that little black dress, a good pair of pumps, a touch of sass, and, of course, red nail polish. Enter RUFFIAN Red, a modern take on a classic formula that goes on smoothly and dries quickly to a high-gloss finish. The style geniuses behind NYC fashion label RUFFIAN took inspiration from Vermillion, the scarlet pigment made from the mineral cinnabar, to make a “true red” polish that is universally flattering and timeless.

Okay I just cant stand Ruffian. No matter how thinly I apply and how long I let each layer dry, it finishes terribly. Looks gooky , it may just be my terrible nail painting skills, but golly is Ruffian the only brand that has looked bad.
I've tried 3 different colors/finishes. I give them (any Ruffian that pops up in my box) to my kid sister, shes young enough to have messy nails.

Not my color
Sampled

Sample size was fine, but I prefer more neutrals. It was very thin looking,but seems to have good coverage. Product quality is fine, but color is too bold for me.

Polish that ran
Sampled

Sorry, I was excited to have such a cute little bottle for touch ups or nails on the go in my purse. But after using this polish one time, my nails smudged. It took a long time to dry and I could not recommend it.

Did not like
Sampled

I was very disappointed with this product. Although it was a great color, dried very fast and it was very shinny it chipped within a few hours. By the end of the day all my nails had chips. It would have been nice for it to last at least a few days.

Chips easily
Sampled

It can be my favorite color in the works, but if it chips and doesn't stay on my nails, it doesn't matter. This product has no staying power.

Not impressed
Sampled

I don't get what all the fuss about Ruffian is about. It's a pretty color, but chipped after less than 12 hours. Not impressed.

Too Thick
Sampled

The color of this was beautiful but the consistency was too thick. It clumped and I had a hard time smoothing it over my nail. This caused it to peel of the nail so easily.

It was okay
Sampled

I don't paint my own nails, so I can't speak on how well it works. I tried it on my feet and the color was plain obnoxious firetruck red. Not for me
