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.

Loved it!!

I really loved this nail polish. I used it on my hands and toes. It went on smooth and the color was amazing! The sample was a decent size, also.

1960s Red Hollywood-esq

I think "ruffian" is an appropriate name for this nail polish but I don't agree with it having a "high-gloss finish." I had to apply a top coat to get this appearance. I did like the color though and for that reason I would buy this again.

RUFFIAN Red
Purchased

I really like the color, but it took too many coats! It may just be that I have little patience when it comes to paininting my nails, but I would like it a lot better if it took fewer coats to achieve the color. Didn't chip easily (I also use a top coat) and lasted almost two weeks.

BEST NAIL POLISH EVER!
Sampled

Ok, I'm way past the deadline of getting points for this review, and yet I still absolutely wanted to review this product anyway. That's how amazing it is. I applied the first swipe of color onto my first nail and was amazed at how opaque it went on! So creamy and such great color! It was incredibly easy to apply, didn't run or streak. It seriously looks like I got a professional manicure done, but I did it myself. Even applying with my non-dominant hand was easy! It only took one coat (this is the from the obsessive girl who wants absolutely nothing showing though, and will apply 3 coats if necessary). I always like it when it takes less effort and fewer coats to apply a good coat of polish, because that means less drying time. And the color is gorgeous too. A beautiful classic red. This product gets a serious thumbs up from me!

Chipped after a day
Sampled

I was highly disappointed with this red. Such a beautiful red...however it chipped after a day. I am really gentle with my nails so I didn't understand why it didn't last.

BEST red nail polish!

It was the most perfect shade of red, and went on so smoothly and dried fast. I love all the Ruffian nail polishes, they never let me down!

Doesn't Last Long
Sampled

I was really happy to get a nail color sample, since I'd been waiting to get one since being a Birchbox member. Like the size of the sample. The color is great. BUT....it didn't last long on my nails. Chipped within days. I need a polish that will last longer than that. Sorry, can't purchase this one with such a quick chip record.

Bold color, long lasting
Sampled

I used this on my toes and my pedicure looked great for weeks! The polish is thick but not too thick. I would purchase additional colors from this company.

Pretty Red!

This polish went on smooth and dried easily. The shade of red is just right for a night out on the town :)
