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. 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.

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.

Waste of Money

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!

Love these

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.

Difficult to use!

Truthfully, I love the idea of these, but I found them tricky. There didn't seem to be a perfect time to pull them off--it always seemed too early or too late, meaning the wet polish smeared or it was dry enough that the rings pulled at it, making it chip or stretch. It's a bummer, because it could be so great if they were more (less?!) sticky.

These took so much effort to stick to my nails, and would not deliver the clean line I wanted. Will not purchase again.

Love these stencils!

I'm not a fan of paying to get my nails done, and I love that these stencils are a simple way to jazz up my manicure without a whole lot of effort.
My one complaint was that the adhesive on the sticker peeled off the base coat on a couple of my nails, but I was able to quickly and easily re-apply that.

I like that they come in a variety of different sizes so you can mix and match depending on your nail size and shape.
