Two coats gave me perfect coverage. This does dry a bit dull so a topcoat is needed. I need two layers of topcoat and I get shine, shine, shine. Dries smooth even without a topcoat and wears like iron. I cannot remember where I bought this but I know that VNS sells it.
I don't know how it compares to other red glitters - that is something I am going to do in the future.
Oo, look! Sparkles!
P.S. - Don't forget about the giveaway!
