Mariska - Classic with a Twist is rated out of 5 by 53.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Genger from Looks are deceiving I received this in my Maven box, and at first was very skeptical as I have very fair skin and oranges do NOT look good on me. From the picture on here of the "drop" of polish, to the way it looks even IN the bottle - both show a pretty shimmer. However, there is NO shimmer once you apply the polish. It dries very quickly, and has a very strong matte finish (almost like a suede even.) However, if you apply a top coat, this takes care of the matte look, however there is still no shimmer to be seen. As I mentioned, I have very fair skin, and rather than that nice olive complexion that works well with oranges and golds, I have a pink complexion that needs more red and silver colors. However, this color actually looks pretty good! I'd recommend it as a great summer color, and would be fantastic on your pedi!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Gert36 from disappointing This looks nothing like the swatch. It took forever to dry and when it did it was very dull with no shimmer at all. I added this on to the box I got and really wish I hadn't.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Becks from Worst Julep Polish Ever This is the worst Julep polish I have ever received. I was truly disappointed, and I have never been disappointed in the past. I almost switched my box when I saw orange, but I thought the shimmer was pretty and it was worth pushing my limits. The polish, unfortunately had no shimmer and was a dull creme polish. It was extremely thick, did not go on smoothly and ended up as a dull matte color. Overall unimpressed, I wish they would replace with a product that looks like the swatch on the website!

Rated 2 out of 5 by CharliAnn from Lovely After A Struggle As others have said, this has a matte finish, not a shimmer finish. As someone who likes matte this is fine with me and it's still a lovely color. HOWEVER! When I was using it, it seemed like it was drying so quickly that if I didn't cover my nail in one swipe it would start to gum up on itself and become uneven. I managed to work it out but it took about 30 minutes just to polish and make it look alright. Because it was so thick though it started chipping the next day. I do love the color and finish but overall not really worth the fight unless I really want to wear this color. This is the only Julep polish I haven't been happy with.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mlb388 from color not as described The color is not at all like described - it's more like a neon orange. I put on two coats and it is actually a totally matte finish and I see no shimmer at all. I ended up putting a shimmer color over it to temper the color. I've only been a Maven member for 4-5 months but this is not the first time that the color looks nothing like the picture/description. I was disappointed that the color was so bright.
