RUFFIAN

Birchbox Breakdown

The fashion world is gaga for Ruffian, so we’re not surprised that their signature runway mani has a cult following all its own. Get the much sought-after look—no catwalk skills required—with this chic RUFFIAN manicure set. It includes a set of superluxe, fashion-forward nail lacquers, polish-perfect base and top coats, and a stencil kit for scoring the brand’s signature crescent moon shape. Get ready to rock this runway look—steady hand not required. A $66 value!

How it Works

This kit will have you all set for a manicure you can strut your stuff in. First up, the supporting players. The Gesso Base Coat sets a smooth, even foundation for easy nail polish application and long-lasting wear. Varnish Top Coat gives shine to your manicure while creating a protective seal to keep chips at bay. Matte Coat is the ultimate “It” nail product, instantly transforming your glossy nail polish to an edgy shine-free finish. Then there are the high-gloss, chip-resistant lacquers from the brand’s exclusive Crowdsourced Collection: Delirium, a bright, saturated purple with an eye-catching metallic finish; Fox Hunt, a rich orange with a touch of shimmer; and Hedge Fund, a sophisticated olive foil with gold shimmer. We’ve also included stencil stickers (in five sizes to fit each nail) to help you get a showstopping #RuffianManicure.

How to Use

Start with the RUFFIAN Gesso Base Coat, then paint each nail with the RUFFIAN lacquer of your choice. Apply the RUFFIAN Varnish Top Coat and let nails dry completely. Place a circular sticker on each nail, leaving the crescent shape along your cuticle exposed. Use a contrasting color (try a metallic or bold hue) to fill in the exposed crescent. Carefully remove the sticker while accent polish is still wet. Let your nails dry and follow up with the Varnish Top Coat for extra shine and protection. Or, for an unexpected matte look, use the RUFFIAN Matte Coat.

The bottles are cute, but this just made it less comfortable to use (like a cute, fancy pen you hate actually writing with.) The "ruffian red" is more like a dark pink. Not a fan.

Nice formula but not good color
Sampled

The shade I got was a dark green and I wasn't a fan. However, the formula of the polish was very good and I didn't need many coats.

Good product

Great packaging, and sample size. Hated my sample color though, which was green. Gave it to a friend and they absolutely love this product!

nice neutral shade
Sampled

The sample I got was a nice nude, which is ok. I don't know if I'd actually buy expensive nude nail polish. If I'm going to shell out, I want it to be really special.

Great nail polish that is a unique greenish/blue color. I have never heard of the brand before, but am happy with the product.

Cool color

I only gave it 4 stars b/c I already have a lot of nail polish. I didn't specify nail polish on my profile. Cool color which I normally wouldn't try.

I don't usually paint my nails, but I was pleasantly surprised by this product. It leaves a great glossy finish, and the colors are cool!

Nice!

I received the red polish as a sample. The color is a classic red and goes on simply. I have a hard time waiting my own nails and the sample was perfect for me. It glides on easily and only requires one coat.
