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.

High Quality Polish

This polish was smooth and had a vibrant color. I don't normally wear nail polish because it chips, but this color later for a long time. I will consider purchasing the full-size bottle to wear on special occasions.

Fantastic little sample! I was able to quickly apply midday at work. Fast drying and minimal smell.

Eh.

This polish was nice but I don't feel like I can give a fair review since I regularly get gel manicures. I do, however, paint my toes sometimes at home. I used this polish for an at home pedicure and the red color and consistency were nice. I just wasn't crazy about it and overall I don't feel like there was anything special about it in comparison with other brands.

I received the pink color of this nail polish in my Birchbox, but I didn't think it was anything special over my other nail polishes. The nail polish remover wipe was cool though!

Ruffian manicure
Sampled

When I first started applying the polish, I was a bit concerned because it was thick ... partially because the bottle was so small and it was hard to manipulate while I was painting my nails and they were wet. I purposely did not use a base coat nor top coat since I wanted to see how it held up on its own. I am hard on my hands, doing dishes nightly. I was extremely surprised how well the polish held up ... a little wear and tear on the tips but nothing noticeable as in chipping. I would definitely purchase this again if I could find a color I liked since the sample red color was unexciting when there is such a wide array of colors for nails now.

Not the best

I usually get my nails done so this was the first time I have painted my own nails in months so for that being said, I loved this color and the size was great.

Several coats needed

Had to do 3 coats when used to 2 using good nail polish. Did like the pink color. By far ESSIE is best nail polish, but look forward to trying others via birchbox!
