RUFFIAN Nail Lacquer - Ciré Noir

There are few cities in the world that embody beauty and style quite like Paris. Inspired by the City of Light, Ciré Noir (“black wax” in French) is a rich black lacquer that dries to a satin finish, which makes it perfectly vampy instead of harsh. We love the unexpected look of ultradark polish on short, well-groomed nails. Très chic!

A perfect Shade
Purchased

I received the orange shade of the Ruffian nail polish in my birchbox and loved it. When I saw this shade, I became very excited. I was very happy that the color actually lived up to my expectation. I highly recommend this line, especially this color!!

Effortlessly Rough Around the Edges
Purchased

I have encountered few other polishes that toe the line between elegant and edgy so well. With a nearly black hue and the slightest shimmer, I find that it works best under a matte coat. As I found with Ruffian's Hedge Fund, the wear is long-lasting with only minimal chipping before I reapplied just out of sheer habit.

The size of the product is depressingly small, however, and just after a few months of regular use I'm already looking to buy another bottle. Additionally, I find that the dry time is also quite long, but that just gives me an excuse to be a little bit lazier than I otherwise would be!

I love it!
Purchased

I love this polish! I love the consistency and the color. And it lasts a good while for me too, and I'm kind of hard on polished nails. I use this polish often. My only disappointment is that the bottle isn't bigger.

Very cool
Purchased

I tried this on a whim. I haven't worn black polish since high school. But this looked chic instead of grungy and I really liked it.

Love Ruffian

This is a very wearable, mature, classy shade of black/onyx-- nothing "emo" or preteen about it! It applies evenly, lasts at least one week without chipping (which is pretty impressive for a DIY mani), and removes cleanly. BUY RUFFIAN COLORS, they are SO worth the $$.

Ruffian makes really great nail colors. My friend got it in her birch box and I loved it on her, so I bought it!

Best little trendy color!
Purchased

I love these little Ruffiano polishes. They last well, don't chip like crazy, and with some touch ups along the way, I get a solid week of nice nails without even a base or top coat. And though the size is small, it's really easy to take on the go for touch-ups - I traveled with this easily.

The black is beautiful - it's a very dark slate gray. It was definitely noticed and I got a lot of compliments. Love it!

Thick and dryed fast!

Great nail polish! Covers well with two coats and drys really fast. Love it, will be buying more colors soon :)

looks pretty in the bottle

Love this color, it's awesome in the bottle. However I've found that it's a bit hard to apply this particular color evenly. It gets really thick when applying and I want to love it on my nails but it's not easy to put on. I'm thinking about just taking it to a nail salon and having them paint my nails with it, I think that might be best.
