Birchbox Breakdown

A good neutral is hard to find. Some are too streaky, some too sheer, others too chalky——the list goes on and on. This polish fits the bill with its smooth application and full-coverage formula. The nude hue is fresh, sophisticated, and exceptionally long-lasting—just what we'’d expect from NYC-based fashion label RUFFIAN. With RUFFIAN Naked in your polish arsenal, you can dare to go bare (well, sort of).

How to Use

Start 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. Watch the video on this page for a detailed how-to, then be sure to share your #RuffianManicure.

not great

the packaging is cool, and it looks great. i loved the color of this nail polish. the down side is that it did not go on well, the finish was streaky, and it did not stay on well.

Very Nuetral

I wear very dark colors so I gave this bottle to my nail tech. Some of her other clients LOVE it and they all said it wears very well.

Perfect nude nail color
Sampled

I absolutely love this color. It took me a long time to warm up to the idea of wearing a nude color, but as soon as i saw this on my nails i fell in love with it! Perfect for work and home. Not too bold, not boring. Clean and crisp. Perfect!

Not good for dark skin tones
Sampled

This polish was just to light for my dark complexion. Basically looked like I wasn't wearing any polish. Some may like the nude look but it just wasn't for me

Love it

I really liked this finger nail lacquer. It chipped less than other nail lacuers. I would buy this again. I also like all the other colors they offer. They are unique.

It's nice

This is definitely not my favorite color. It seems to be a nice quality of nail polish but I am not a fan of the color with my complexion.

Perfect nude

Great nude color. This is not too sheer, actually shows up on my nails. Good consistency and brush makes color easy to apply.

Horrible

I did not like the color or the consistency of this product. Felt like a dollar store knockoff nail polish.
