Adding a top coat is like frosting a cake—it’s the essential final step that makes everything so much sweeter. The geniuses behind NYC fashion house Ruffian don’t mess around—this top coat dries to a high-gloss finish and keeps polish intact for days (really!). No chips? Now that’s pretty sweet.
I was really excited to receive my Ruffian Varnish Top Coat because I fell in love with their new line of nail polishes and found them to last for a very long time. However their Top Coat does not seem to be of the same quality. I have given it multiple tries to prove itself and sadly it has failed each time. On my most recent use my polish peeled back completely in a manner of hours. I am not talking about slight chips, I mean the polish came off entirely.
I will still remain loyal to their polishes because the colors are beautiful, long lasting, and the top makes it easy to apply. But I will find a different top coat.
This top coat didn't work I used the top and base of the same brand and my nail polish peel right off the next day like sticker1
I bought the entire product set and it chips within a day, expensive mistake, glad the bottles were small. Print is too small and hard to read as well1
I purchased the top and base coat after receiving a color sample. First impression was, this is a small bottle. As for the product itself it reminded me of the nail polish you played with when you were little and playing dress up. It peeled right off in a matter of days. At first I thought it was the other polish I was wearing (a thicker glittery kind), but then I tried it with a plain solid color, and same thing it peeled off easily in big chunks. I have used many other top/base coats and never had this happen before.1
I was not pleased with this product. I purchased the clear coat after receiving a sample color in my September box. The clear coat went on very thick and did not dry well.2
I purchased this product because I've been on a quest to find a great chip-proof top coat. I have used this only once, with other 'chip-free' products that usually work quite well, and am very disappointed. The usual brand of polish and chip-free basecoats usually last me a few days, at least. With only changing the top coat to this product, my nails were chipped within 12 hours. This was not worth the price.... at all.1
This brush needed to be worked in a bit, but after the first hand it started laying flat when brushing. Then the polish was a bit tacky and I was afraid it was going to finish clumpy but the end result is smooth. Wearability is good, I'm rough with my hands and most polishes flake off in one day.4
I ordered this because I needed a top coat nail polish. I love it! Great product. It does what it says it will. I love ruffian polishes.4
I bought this on a whim and it is fantastic! It goes on very evenly and dries super fast. Plus, after a week of my nails being painted, no chips and no peeling!5
I've given subscriptions to three different friends—and I have gotten both my mom and aunt to sign up—and they have all loved it. If you ever trade product/beauty advice with friends or family, this is a sure thing. Make sure they fill out their online profile, though, so they get more of the types of samples they like. My mom says she gets too many shimmery shadows and bright lip colors. While she is a beautiful, stylish lady, those are things she just doesn't use at 60!5
