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.

The classic red

This red is beautiful. It's the epitome of classy, sexy, and feminine. It doesn't chip and the nail technician even asked where she could get that for her personal stash!

I am in love with this color! The quality of the polish is great. I love how it glides on my nails. I really like the fact that this is a strong polish that keeps up with me everyday and doesn't chip easily.

RUFFIAN Nail Lacquer - RUFFIAN Red

Nice size as a trial size; really appreciate that! I did not like this polish, however, as I have become quite spoiled by using the gel polishes. This product did not have the staying power that I like, and it took too many coats for full coverage on my nails. Pretty color, though!

LOVE

I loved this nail polish. Went on great and my nails were so shiny and glossy looking after they dried that there was no need for a top coat. Would love to get another sample of this in a different color.

WOWZA!!!

Ruffian is the BEST nail polish I have ever used. One coat and it looks like a thick, shiny, super smooth salon job. I am currently trying to purchase every color of this brand I can find!
