RUFFIAN Varnish Top Coat

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.

Polish came off within Hours

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.

Disappointing II
Purchased

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 well

Not very good
Purchased

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.

Unimpressed
Purchased

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.

Worst Top Coat Ever
Purchased

I had never tried this brand before and thought that at $10.00 a bottle, it would be a quality top coat. My nails chipped 2 days after I polished them and used this top coat. Would not recommend it at all.

Terrible
Purchased

There weren't any instructions that came with this, so I used it as a top coat: just painted my nails as usual and then applied this product over the polish. It was awful. It had a dull look (not the shiny look that a top coat is known for), it was sticky (not smooth) and I ended up removing it from my nails less than 24 hours after applying it. I may have missed something (I almost hope I did) but if I didn't, this product should be seriously reformulated.

Not sure why the bad reviews?
Purchased

So yes this is a small bottle. It doesn't perform magic, but it does what a top coat should (I guess?) it's shiny and I think my polish chipped less than on its own.

I didn't have the peeling issue others had.

It's definitely a good product, but I can't say it's better than any drug store polish I've gotten.

Biggest plus? Super shiny and dries fast.
Minus? Very small bottle and huff price

Great
Purchased

Most top coats I have used don't hold up real well but this one seems to do the trick pretty good. Lasted a couple of days and I was doing lot of work. It is great.
