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.

It's a top coat.
Purchased

I have no "wows" or complaints about this product. It is a clear top coat, does what it is expected nothing more, nothing less.

Small bottle
Purchased

Really small bottle, but so far it does the job for my at-home manicures in between my trips to the salon.

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.

I really like this formula, it keeps nails from chipping longer than usual, but the only thing I don't like is the tiny bottle. It's like a sample size! I used it 3 times and I'm almost halfway done with the bottle

Top coat
Purchased

I bought this because I needed an extra cheap item to qualify for a freebie. I lost my top coat so I decided to buy this one despite seeing some bad reviews. I've always bought cheap drugstore top coat and I don't know if there's a difference or not, but I didn't have a problem with this top coat at all. It does what it is supposed to do.

Ruffian Top Coat
Purchased

This top coat polish has a very nice shine to it. My nail polish did chip the next day on one finger with two coats of polish, but overall it is a good top coat.

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.
