This nail polish was not designed for layering. Instead, it is a perfect two-coater glitter. It is packed, yet smooth. Application was a breeze and drying time was fantastic. It is smooth, as in not bumpy, unlike some two-coaters out there that clump up in application; but it is a glitter after all, so by itself it looks gritty without topcoat. I suggest adding at least one coat of basecoat or topcoat and you are ready to go. The color is perfect for Autumn, it is a copper or burnt orange, leaning to brown. Very warm and subdued in the shade, but very sparkly in the sun. I don't know if you follow Shimmer on Facebook, but she is always having the best giveaways, I encourage you to head over there and check out all the prizes she offers to her fans.
