NOTD: Ruffian Delirium

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.

  1. I’m a total nail polish junkie, I have a full drawer of them in my dresser, most of them are OPI and Essie, though my most expensive would have to be a Chanel, which I will never do again because the formula chips like no ones business! Though I still wear it because the color is gorgeous!

      Oh no! I’ve been lusting after Chanel and Dior polishes for forever. I’m surprised to hear that the Chanels are overrated. Hm. Oh yeah, I would totally keep wearing it if I spent that much money on it. 😀

      • I’ve heard moderate things about Dior and people seemed to be mixed about Chanel, and I’m sure there are other colors are other formulas that don’t chip like mine, but I got one for my mom for her birthday a couple years ago and she said it chipped, and then just last year or the year before that I gave my best friend a bunch of stuff from Chanel as birthday gifts and got her a polish and while she loves the color, it’s probably one of her top colors for summer, she says it chips more than her OPIs and her Essie’s.

        Wow! I’m so surprised to hear that. I would expect a company like Chanel to be on top of their game.
