I don't have Ruby, I have Marine Time. But I can still comment, right? :D
Formula: Very creamy, not too thick or runny, and super opaque. I can get a satisfying opacity with one coat, and it NEVER streaks. I don't know if it's just Marine Time, but the polish had a nice matte finish, although if you want a glossy finish a top coat works well.
Verdict: I LOVE Savina polishes, and will definitely be picking up some more colors.

They should call this color Ruby Red Slippers instead of just Ruby, because that's exactly what it looks like, Dorothy's shoes in The Wizard Of Oz.
Ruby is a bright, rich cherry red with lots of very finely milled red glitter that's slightly lighter than the polish itself. The effect on my toenails (I'm hopeless at painting my own fingernails, plus I always chip my polish if I do get them painted, so I stick to my toenails usually) is gorgeous. In low light it looks red with a hint of glimmer, but in bright light it twinkles beautifully.
I've avoided glitter nailpolish for years because I'm used to the cheap drugstore variety with the chunky glitter than adheres to your nails and makes the polish lumpy and uneven. Nothing of the sort here, though. Ruby goes on very smooth.
1 coat gave good coverage, but 2 was perfect (I like my polish very opaque). The brush is skinny (especially compared to OPI's Pro-Wide brushes, which I'm used to, but even in comparison to your standard cheap drugstore brand), but applies the polish evenly without streaking or smearing. On the plus side, it helps me get the edges of my nails (which I always have a problem with on my big toes since the nails are deep set and the skin on the sides gets in the way).
I picked up 2 bottles of this from Nordstrom Rack a while back and as soon as I'm there again, I'll be buying more if they still have it. This is one of my favorite nail polish colors ever!
