The fashion world is gaga for Ruffian, so we’re not surprised that their signature runway mani has a cult following all its own. The crescent moon-inspired shape (which sits at the base of the nail: think upside-down French manicure) is edgy, unexpected, and totally on-trend. But if you’re anything like us, your hands are a little too shaky to pull off flawless nail art. Don’t despair: RUFFIAN manicure stencils are here. Get ready to rock this runway look—steady hand not required.
My DIY trick is to use the paper enforcers (those white circular stickers for 3 ring binder paper). They come in cheap packs with a bunch and they work the same way. Also, there is less pressure to get them to stick the first time because when you mess up you just grab a new sticker!2
These circular stencils are flat so they gap at the curve of your cuticle. This means if you don't want seepage you need to really press the stickers hard. Unfortunately, if you do this you pull up any nail polish under the sticker. You're left with a 'lip' below which you apply the second color, but the end look is not smooth and pretty amateurish looking.2
Not really worth buying, not very useful chip nails3
I loved this it was amazing holy cow. I do my nails every other day but with this i keep it on for longer than that!3
I love these stencils. You can do so many hot nail looks with them and the price is not bad! I will definitely buy them again, I love the look. You could use hole protectors for the same thing but these are perfect.5
This is a great way to do something different. I had and will continue to purchase this item. This will make a great stocking stuffer. How fun?4
I bought these for my daughter as she does her nails every few days and is into doing different designs on them. We've tried other makeshift tools to do half moons. She used these and said that they worked better than other methods she tried.4
I absolutely love the idea of these. When I used them the just don't adhere enough to keep the polish from seeping under the sticker. I don't think I would buy again. I've tried a few different times, cleaning my nails each time. It may just be me. ;)2
These give you a perfect moon mani!! Makes it easy and doesn't peel off polish like paper reinforces can. Great idea for a mom to be basket...and cheap too4
Hard to use! Peel off is difficult. Requires trimming to use on most nails. A waste of money. My dots from the craft store work better.1
