Nail of the Day! Man, it has been WAY too long since I put up one of these posts. Today I’m talking Ruffian Delirium, a polish that I got in a Birchbox a while ago.
I LOVE this color! It is a vibrant medium-deep purple polish that has a slight metallic quality to it. It isn’t shimmery, but it has very tiny magenta sparkles that cause the finish to be more metallic. It is very opaque. You could easily get away with one coat, but I use two because I like to ensure an even finish. It has a fairly shiny finish. As far as wear goes, it is pretty good. I get a solid two to three days without chipping (with no top coat). That isn’t incredible, but when you take that into consideration with the color, it is pretty sweet.
Have I mentioned that I love this color? 😉 Unfortunately, I don’t think that I will be repurchasing this polish because they are very expensive. This is NOT a sample size. In the Birchbox shop, this small (5 mL, .17 ounce) size retails for $10.00!! To me, that is just too much for a nail polish. I do really like the color and formula, but I cannot justify spending that much on a polish. If it were a standard .5 ounce size (like OPI and Essie), it would cost nearly 30 bucks! That is sinful.
What is the most expensive nail polish you have ever purchased? I think mine would be a $9 bottle of OPI polish… I usually get my Juleps on sale, but if I didn’t, they would be the most expensive that I’ve ever purchased.
I bought this myself. All opinions are my own. The link to the Birchbox shop is not an affiliate link. I am not getting paid for this post.
