Martha - Classic with a Twist is rated out of 5 by 7.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I hate this freaking nail polish! Like the reviewer before me, I found the consistency annoying. Super-annoying, in fact. It starts out way runny. Then it thickens up to be way too gloopy. It thickens up over time, too. I have half the bottle left and it's thicker, presumably due to the air in the bottle - although nothing else I have has ever done that in only two months. That would be acceptable. Except that it chips LIKE CRAZY. Oh my god. I have never seen anything like this. That half a bottle I have left? I have NEVER gotten a decent manicure out of it. Just tonight, I put on a basecoat, and once that was dry, a nice even thin layer of this stuff, and about an hour later, then a topcoat (I sandwich each layer of polish between layers of topcoat now, it's great for getting more wear out of a manicure) and even after the topcoat was bone-dry, the polish still smeared!!!!!!! And that's not a one-time occurrence with Martha. This stuff smears every. freaking. time. I always thought I just had too much of it on, but this proves that it's the formula. The second-worst part is that Julep is so freaking expensive. Sure, we tell ourselves that it's 4-free (so are most nail polishes now), that it's cute and exciting and random and good quality. (Sometimes.) But what we forget is that these bottles are half the size of a normal nail polish bottle! .27 fl oz instead of .5. That means that paying $6.67 (in, say, the It Girl box with its three polishes) for it is the same as paying $13.34 for a normal-sized bottle; paying the Maven price on one bottle of $11.20 is the same as paying $22.40 for nail polish; and buying retail at $14 is the same as a $28 bottle of nail polish, full-sized. The actual worst part is that the color is so cute. If it were just any random color, I'd shrug and turn to something else. But I really WANT this one to work. It looks good with everything, it's an adorable ballet pink... I give up. I'm throwing the rest of the bottle in the trash.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JessicaJean from BEAUTIFUL COLOR but putting it on is a PAIN I can see I'm not the only one having issues with it. First off, I LOVE this color. The first time I used it I feel in love with it. So when I grabbed it the following week to apply I was so excited. Little did I know, I was about to be devastated. The consistency of this polish had been a nightmare. It thickened up and was now nearly impossible to apply. Out of my 60 Julep polishes I own, this is the only one that has had this done which leaves me terribly confused. The lid was tightly in place and it wasn't exposed to high heat. I still love this color. The formula with this color was a disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lenysea from I like it! I don't get all the negativeness about this nail polish. I used it and it's fine! Cute color for spring/summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pink1glossy from Great color and smells good The color is beautiful, and the polish itself actually smells good! I know people are saying it is difficult to put on, but I've had no issues with it. It isn't too liquid or too thick. I put two coats on, but I always do with any nail polish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by badwolf9 from So pretty, annoying to apply I received this in my June Maven box. At first, I wasn't really feeling it because I was looking for neons and glitters for the summer (I had received the box by accident). But I just tried it out a few days ago and I absolutely love it! It looks gorgeous on my currently tan skin and I see it being a fall staple for me too. It would definitely compliment most skin tones. I had a problem with how runny it is, though. I only have a few Julep polishes so I'm not sure how others are. But this was hard to apply because of its consistency. It also became a bit gunky when I went to apply the second coat. Overall, good color, takes between two-three coats to appear as in the picture, and I would buy it again now that I've gotten used to the consistency.
