Helen - Classic with a Twist is rated out of 5 by 27.
Rated 3 out of 5 by twill from Beautiful color; slightly difficult formula I received Helen in my Maven intro box, and I have worn it a few times. It is a lovely color, with a really nice cream finish. I really like the color saturation, strong and appealing for a pastel. It functions wonderfully as a neutral, and it looks good on short nails (sometimes colors that are too wild look a little silly) while still intriguing the eye. As far as actually working with it goes, the formula is nice in that it is very opaque. It is not a one-coater, but given how light it is, I was impressed with how well the color built up in two coats. Unfortunately, this effect is somewhat cancelled out by patchiness caused by the thickness of the formula. I do think it goes on a little thick and blobby -- maybe it is just the particular batch I have, but I consistently have a bit of a problem laying it down smoothly and evenly. Also, once dry, it does feel a little thick on my nails -- I can tell that I have an extra layer there. I have not tried adding polish thinner. Nonetheless, I will still continue to wear it. The color is worth it, and the polish looks great under Clio from the Champagne Trio.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mollybel from Pretty & classic I received the Helen polish with my first Classic with a Twist box. I don't normally wear pastels, but this color is more subtle - not neutral per se, but very versatile and pretty. The polish seemed a little thick, so I had some trouble applying it evenly across my nails. Definitely needed 2 layers to smooth it out. Very happy with the overall look though; I couldn't stop looking at my nails all week!

Rated 4 out of 5 by shopinbed from Unique, fun color, but a bit thick I got this in my intro box and really like it! I usually buy deeper/brighter colors, but this pastel has enough "smoke" to it to make it a little edgy and not so "sweet." The only thing I didn't like was the consistency - too thick to apply thin coats or get a real even application. However, luckily I also purchased the Freedom Polymer top coat, which made it look smooth. It also took a while to dry - maybe because it was so thick on my nails?? I'll wear it again though!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kira25 from Elegant! Another reviewer described the color as elegant, and that's exactly the right word. You see so many pink and beige neutral polishes, and this is different and interesting, but still classic. Love it! I went for 3 stars instead of 4 because the consistency is so hard to work with. Not quite as runny as Claudette, but still thin enough to give streaky results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EvitaW from Perfect Spring in a Bottle I got this as part of my first Maven box and I am SO GLAD I did!! This is my perfect type of color. I LOVE anything that reminds me of Spring and this is just the RIGHT COLOR! It goes on very smooth and stays FOREVER! (at least 2 weeks on my nails)
