Birchbox Breakdown

When Bing Crosby crooned “Moonlight Becomes You,” he very well may have been referring to this platinum metallic hue, which was inspired by the moonlight over Rome. The silvery-taupe shade, created by the NYC fashion label and available exclusively through Birchbox, adds a gleaming twist on a neutral nail lacquer—for a look that’s equal parts classic and unexpected.

How it Works

Each polish is created to hold up for days without chipping, and unlike most metallic shades, this one applies completely streak-free. 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.

How to Use

Before painting your nails, start with a clear base coat to set a smooth foundation for the polish. Next, apply one to two coats of nail polish in smooth, even brushstrokes. Once it’s mostly dry, apply a top coat to seal your nails and add a boost of shine. Clean up any stray color around the edges with a Q-tip or small brush dipped in polish remover.

I love this color and it lasts!
Sampled

Wearing this right now, and I always get a ton of compliments on this color. It's between silver and gold, and lasts for a week before chipping. Will definiely be buying once my sample runs out.

Nice Color for a metallic polish

I do not normally wear metallic hue polishes but this one I like because it's not glittery shiny its more of a "natural" silvery color. Its not too in your face. I also only had to use one coat.

Not a fan

I was not impressed with this nail polish. The coat went on weird and the color came out strange. This is not something I would use.

I enjoy using this lacquer. People always compliment me when I have it on. It wears long. The color is great and i can mix and match it with other colors and designs. I don't have to wear it with a top layer gloss.

I am a stickler for chipping nail polish and this polish past the test! The color was great and polish went on in two coats easily. This was a win in my book.

Color Me Ruffian

This nail polish is amazing. I put one coat on and it covered my nail and I didn't even need a second coat. It also dries quickly! I couldn't believe it.

I can't say anything negative about this nail polish. Full coverage in just one application and the color is perfect no matter what season we're in!
