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.

Love this nailpolish

Goes on really smooth and the colors are fun. The bottles are somewhat small, but I love the quality of the nailpolish

Just ok

The colors were different and I loved the purple shade. The green and orange aren't really for me, and the polish chipped about as fast as other brands.

Awesome and out of the box color-wise!

I would never have chosen the gold/green shade from a store, but gave it a try when it arrived in my Birchbox. It was easy to apply, the bottle is uniquely-shaped, and the color turned out to be a holiday favorite of mine. Long-lasting and solid deep color...got rave reviews from friends who usually see me in Neutrals! I can't wait to try other shades that are fashion-forward, as well as the base and top coats. Thanks Birchbox!

LOVE!

These colors are spectacular! Look great on nails, and I absolutely LOVE that it comes with a base/top coat. Easy to polish, great brush. Colors lasted longer than regular nail polish I have. Nice sparkle in each color.

The green polish

I wore the green polish with some gold glitter accents and it was very glam - the shimmer of the green is subtle but makes your manicure that much more special. It was perfect for New Years Eve and it wore well for the next week.

I like this.

I really like the green color. It's different without screaming "I'm different!" It paints on smoothly and thickly. Plus the little bottle is so cute.

Well

I tried the purple nail polish in my Birchbox and it only looked right the first couple if days. The nail polish chips really fast and the color alters.

A Polished Look

I must admit, i had my doubts about this polish...but i was pleasantly surprised. It was easy to apply and produced a great, even finish. The polish went on smoothly and the color was nice and rich. Best of all, it didn't take forever to dry and lasted a good while before any "chippage" occurred. I hope that more colors will be available soon.

Good Product

I love the colors and the shape and size of the bottles. The matte finish is my favorite product from the entire set! The only problem I have with the product is that it seems to chip easily.
