Birchbox Breakdown

A good neutral is hard to find. Are we right or are we right? 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 chic—exactly what we’d expect from NYC-based fashion label RUFFIAN's first (and highly anticipated) nail lacquer collection. With RUFFIAN Naked in your polish arsenal, you can dare to go bare (well, sort of).

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 up by dipping a cotton swab or small brush in nail polish remover and running it around each nail for a sleek, professional look.

Good neutral color but chips so easily and looks work out fast.

Perfect toe polish! Delicate and feminine.
Sampled

I absolutely LOVE this color. It's quite close to my skin tone so it's really the perfect color for the beginning of spring and before you get into the vibrant colors of summer. Perfect for any outfit and, unlike a lot of lighter colors, it didn't streak when applying so that you could never get an even coat. Would very much like to have this in full-size when it's back in stock.

Did not like color

I tried this color on and I did not like it. It looks pretty similar to my natural color. It's a bit too neutral for me. I prefer a deeper nail polish color.

Just Simply Gorgeous!

I'm the no fuss type. I want edge, but I'm a bit conservative also. Maybe Olivia Popeish? Anyway - Ruffian's nail lacquer in is now my fav! Move over OPI. I AM IN LOVE WITH BIRCHBOX xoxox

FUN COLOR

This polish is very fun but it peels off in layers in one sweep. Otherwise-a great shade and good for the warm or cold seasons.

I love this nail polish. It dries so quickly! Leaving less time for imperfections. Stays chips free for days! Seems kind of expensive for such a small full size product though. I will most likely buy one though.

Okay color/tint

I received a lighter skin color nail polish and it was ok. Slightly too matte for my preference. It did not chip though and stayed on for a while.

Somewhat ok

I Love this product in the other colors - This particular color is too nude for my skin tone. The nail polish it self is great, its shiny and dries fast - but again, this particular color is too nude. :-(

This stayed on my nails for a log time. I liked the light color, good to wear on vacation.
