Birchbox Breakdown

NYC-based fashion label RUFFIAN is known for daring designs and groundbreaking style, so we knew their first nail lacquer line would be bright, bold, and totally irresistible. Inspired by the African violet, Delirium is an eye-popping bright purple with shimmering metallic finish—the perfect shade to transition easily from summer into fall. It applies like liquid metal for stunning coverage and wearability. Frankly, we’re deliriously in love with this one (we couldn’t resist!).

How it Works

This glossy high-end nail polish is formulated to hold up for days without chipping (not that we would expect anything less from this top-of-the-line fashion label). We dig the geometric deco-inspired bottle, but we especially love how easy it is to get a good grip on the cap so we can polish our nails with confidence and control.

How to Use

Begin with a base coat to set a strong foundation for long-lasting wear. Apply 1-2 coats of nail polish in smooth, even brushstrokes. Finish with a glossy top coat for a boost of shine and protection. If any polish ends up on your skin or cuticles, clean it up by dipping a cotton swab or small brush in nail polish remover and running it around each nail for a sleek, professional look.

true love!

Bought for my sister. She's lucky I shared! Ruffian might be my favorite nail polish brand of all time. The colors are unique and interesting. They go on smooth and easily. They have pretty decent staying power and they look good. They aren't streaky but not too thick. It's really true love!

How Often Do Men Compliment Your Nails?
Purchased

I love, love, love this color. It's bright and original. I got so many complimentary comments from male coworkers and friends. In particular, one gentleman told me that he liked it because it's the type of color that he would paint a custom motorcycle. It's definitely not a conservative color, it's very bright and fun and flirty.

great color choices
Purchased

I love the colors in this product line. It does stay on a couple of days but I do notice after day 2 the color fades around the tips.

Great Color
Purchased

I didn't even bother with two coats with this. The first coat looked good enough to just leave. This did chip on the ends of my nails more quickly than other polishes but the color has mostly lasted for over a week. The price is a bit steep for the amount of product you get but I've never seen another purple that's like this one. I'm happy I got this.

First, I love the name of this nail polish. Second, it's a gorgeous purple that looks amazing and doesn't chip too fast.

Royal winner

When I first received this polish, I wasn't too excited about the color since I generally use more classic tones, however I really like it for a nice change. The bottle is cute, the consistency is nice, thick but not too thick, has decent staying power & The color definitely pops!

Not my favorite
Purchased

Although I love this color, I found this polish to be difficult to apply and it required quite a few coats to look even slightly presentable. I then had to apply two coats of a top coat to be satisfied with the way my nails looked. I would not buy this product again.
