Maryam - Classic with a Twist is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not super shimmery but still gorgeous I primed my nails with Take a Breather in Sheer Ivory, then swatched this color on alternating fingers. I used the Freedom polymer top coat. Maryam was almost one coat, and isn't nearly as shimmery on the nail as it is the bottle. It's subtle, but that's fine for a work mani. It chipped pretty quickly, though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh I put it aside and forgot about it. Never really wore it because the formula was too thick and darker than the picture. Even a bit more purpley-brown than the picture. Which is a shame because the gold undertone is a good idea

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No shimmer Maryam is a pretty fall brownish red, but has no shimmer when applied. I'm all about bling, so that disappointed me, but if you want a rich wintery color, you will give this five stars for sure!
