Birchbox Breakdown

There are some things that will never go out of style: that little black dress, a good pair of pumps, a touch of sass, and, of course, red nail polish. Enter RUFFIAN Red, a modern take on a classic formula that goes on smoothly and dries quickly to a high-gloss finish. The style geniuses behind NYC fashion label RUFFIAN took inspiration from Vermillion, the scarlet pigment made from the mineral cinnabar, to make a “true red” polish that is universally flattering and timeless.

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.

Love Ruffian

These nail polishes are my favorite thing to see in my sample box—they go on smooth, dry quickly and last for days. This is a really pretty, bold red color.

Polish chips after a day
Sampled

I just tried this polish for a wedding I was going to and was disappointed my mani pedi only lasted one day with polish. When I use other brands it usually last at least 3 days. It's still a nice polish with a beautiful red color.

I Always Grab This

This is my favorite red nail polish. I will be using it until it is gone and then will probably repurchase. I don't use any of my other reds anymore. It is fast drying and has a very glossy finish.

Great Nail Polish! Only takes one coat for the color to look great, dries fast and doesn't chip. The color is a very classy red.

Beautiful Long Lasting Polish
Sampled

I tried this for the first time on my way out the door for a night out and worried that I might be late having to apply several coats and wait for it to try. I was wrong! When I opened it I immediately liked that it didn't have a strong smell and was thick with a vibrant color. The nail polish application was easy and flawless and didn't drip. I realized quickly I only needed one coat. The best part was that it had a great gloss finish and tried in a minute or two.

Universal, glossy color

This is a beautiful, rich, glossy color that looks great on every skintone. I am more of a nude polish wearer, but this works for special occasions and the bottle looks really cute next to the rest of my collection.
