nice set

I ordered this set of Ruffian polishes after I had gotten a sample of a Ruffian color nail polish in my Birchbox. I like the base coat and the top coat; they go on easily and dry well. I'm not sure if I like the matte coat polish, but that has nothing to do with Ruffian, I just don't think I like matte polish. Live and learn.

Keeps your mani like new
Purchased

The top coats are very effective at prolonging the life of your mani. The matte top coat is awesome - it turns the polish into a totally different look. And how cute are these bottles! The base coat didn't agree with my nails and caused the polish to peel off in a sheet, but that happens to me with most base coats.

A little disappointed.
Purchased

I love the brand but the packaging leaves a lot to be desired. Hard to read the bottles. I still am not sure which is the base coat since it's not labeled. Neither is the top coat or matte coat although the matte coat is pretty obvious.

Less great than the nailpolish
Purchased

What made the polish great were the fantastic colors. I thought that the top/bottom coats would be equally great, but these really weren't that special, and weren't that effective. The matte polish was cool, but it looked terrible. The effect dulled the polish, but also highlighted all of the mistakes I made in my manicure!

Great set!

All three of these went on really well. Very easy to use. I was skeptical of the cap at first because it looked awkward to hold but it was great! The matte might just be my new favorite!!

The matte finish makes your nails look beautiful. Also, the shape of the bottle is great, as I knocked it over and it didn't spill!

Matte

This set is great, but what really sets it apart is the top coat that turns any color into a matte (which is super in right now). The bottles are small but they were a nice little indulgence for me.

The bottles aren't labelled
Purchased

Look at the picture. All 3 are labelled "Nail Lacquer" I guess you're supposed to tell by looking at them, but I don't know which one is the base coat and the top coat, I assume the cloudy looking one is the matte finish. I just think they should label the product better. Also, the bottles are small and contain less product than standard nail polish bottles.

I love the handle!

The ball makes it easier for me to control my brushstrokes.
I'd like to see more colors in the future including some metallic and some shades lightly infused with glitter.
