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 used this with the sample nail polish I got in Octobers box and it works great! my nails lasted about a week, they could've lasted longer I suppose, But I got bored with the color and had to switch up.5
First and foremost, my nail polish has been on for two weeks (and I'm not easy on manicures), and is barely chipped. This topcoat does take a while to dry and is easy to mess up with dents, fingerprints, or random textures off of surfaces you may touch accidentally during that time. It's also not quite as high gloss as I'd hoped for, which could have to do with the previous point, however. To keep my nails going two weeks, I added another coat of top coat after the first week. For the first time in a while, I think I may have to strip them down because I'm bored with the color, not because it's so chipped up it's no longer appropriate for going out in public. As with the other Ruffian nail products I've tried, I do think the design of the cap makes it easier to control, so there's not as much polish that ends up where I didn't want it to.3
First off, the size of the bottle is quite small. I was really hoping for more of a shiny impenetrable layer over my polish. While it does have some staying power, it's not as hard or shiny as I would like even though I put on a thick layer. The surface isn't smooth, it's really susceptible to indentations and random texturing. Not good.2
I just had a mani/pedi done yesterday using this new product for me but it seems like it's going to stay where my manicurist put it so hopefully I will get a month's worth of color after using this for my top coat especially if I keep using it several times a weeks, that should do it for me.5
This top coat is AMAZING! Feels and looks like I got a professional mani! It has never chipped and since I work with my hands, this topcoat keeps my color looking fresh and neat!5
