RUFFIAN Manicure Stencil Kit

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.

It was a good idea but not the right product.

ruffian manicure
Purchased

Love the ruffian manicure. These could be a bit stickier! They pealed up to easily so that polish could sneak out from where it was supposed to go.

So wierd
Purchased

These work pretty good but it was hard to do alone.
You need another hand to help rub them on.
the tutorial makes it look much easier than it is.

eh...
Purchased

I tried following the video on the how-to for ruffian, and like other reviewers, the sticker pulled up my base coat and ruined the manicure before I could finish it. The sizes were also a little hard to choose from, so some went to waste. I will continue to use them but probably won't be putting a base coat. (oh, and I tried not sticking them so hard, but they wouldn't stay put)

Adhesive too strong
Purchased

I am going to try and get my money back. The stencils fit fine, but that's about it. I followed the video instructions. I put on the base coat and let it dry. Then I put on the stencils and pressed hard enough so it would stick. For the most part I did not have color seepage under the stencil, but - and many other reviewers also posted this - the adhesive is super strong. Its unnecessarily strong. The adhesive was left on my nails and although it did not damage my nails, thankfully, it pulled up my dried base coat. I tried to salvage it with the other paint coat, but it was lumpy and a mess - so I had to remove the nail polish and start over without the stencil.

I'm clumsy
Purchased

The stickers are ultra strong and do stay in place if you've rubbed them in well. I tend to be impatient and try putting them on polish that hasn't dried long enough & end up tearing my base coat too often. I love that there are multiple sizes of circles & rings to create different looks. I'll buy it again now that I'm addicted to Ruffian polish and am keeping my nails painted 24/7/365 :)

Love These!

These little guys make manicures so easy! There are a ton of different ways you can use them and they aren't so sticky that you end up taking nail polish off when you remove them, but they are sticky enough that they keep colors separate. There are also lots of different sizes for everyone's different fingers.

Waste of time and money
Purchased

Good concept, bad execution of product. They stick like super glue to your nails, leaving adhesive and/or taking a layer of your nails off.

The book comes with limited sizes, and hardly any of them match up to your nails, either being too small or too large. This leaves a sloppy look if you did get them to stick right.

I had to take my polish off and redo after trying these. Half my nails had glue left behind, and half my nails ended up damaged from it pulling both top coat and nail layers up.

Must be patient!
Purchased

These stencils come in a clever matchbook packaging, but don't be fooled, they aren't all too user friendly. You have to push and press and push and press to make sure these are stuck to your nail perfectly before you start! Then, you can't be antsy to peel them off right away! WAIT. Until they are completely dry before taking off...I'm serious, or you will be disappointed. I would recommend, as these create a different look to many of those out in the market.
