RUFFIAN

Birchbox Breakdown

We love silver and gold as much as the next gal, but there’s something extra special about the pink-hued shade that’s popping up all over the jewelry scene. This metallic rose gold lacquer from NYC fashion house RUFFIAN (available exclusively through Birchbox) applies like liquid metal, so your nails shine and shimmer as much as the rings and bracelets stacked on your hands and wrists. Shine on.

How it Works

We love how Ruffian’s deco-inspired bottles look on our vanities, but we especially love how the unique bottle shape helps us get a good grip on the cap for controlled, steady application. Ruffian polishes are specifically formulated to hold up for days without chipping, which is a good thing since we’ll be wearing this opulent shade nonstop all season.

How to Use

Set a smooth foundation with a layer of base coat before applying one to two coats of nail lacquer. Add a glossy top coat for shine and protection. Clean up any stray color by dipping a Q-tip or small brush in nail polish remover and running it along the cuticle and the edges of each nail.

Not for me
Sampled

I've received a few different samples of this brand's polish and I find it chips very soon after application, no matter if I use a base & top coat or not. I'm also not a fan of the metallic look.

Great color, but too thick
Sampled

This nail polish color is gorgeous, but it simply does not set because of its thickness. Twenty minutes later, still very wet.

Perfect color!

Loved the color, and lasted well. Chipped in the typical amount of time... not too early but not exceptional staying power.

Doesn't last long
Sampled

I did not like this product. I didn't like the color and it chipped very quickly. The sample size was okay but I didn't even use it more than once.

Such a pretty color!
Sampled

This nail polish is such a pretty color, I just wish it went on better. I think the shimmer can cause it to look streaky on the nail. Not ideal if you're trying to paint your nails quickly.

Perfect color

This is a fantastic color that is almost like wearing a fabulous piece of jewelry on your nails. You almost don't even need to wear jewelry when you have this on! As usual, Ruffian polish goes on nicely and evenly - just remember to use two *thin* coats, or it gets a bit streaky.

Absolute Favorite Nail Color
Sampled

I don't paint my nails very often because it seems like as soon as it gets on it flakes right off again. I probably don't prep my nails like I should but this one isn't any different for me in that regards. But the color is perfect! It is great for the summer - slightly goldish and but also perfect for the winter, too. I keep it in my purse and touch up whenever I need to.

Impressed!

This color went on smoothly, had a nice finish, and wore very well. The metallic color wasn't too much and gave just enough shine. I really liked this polish.

Not faborite

Color was not nearly as pretty on the nails as in the bottle and did not stay on very well. I like more shine less matte and this product did not give me what I was looking for

My daughters got this before I could try it! They love it.
Goes on smooth, just the right amount of shimmer.
I will need to get some for myself.
