Holy moly this polish just glows and I only used one coat. It's a stunner. I am annoyed that it is so close to Valerie except Valerie's glass-fleck shimmer is a bit more pronounced. I also think that is my way of justifying keeping both. Still, they are very, very close to each other. It doesn't take away from the fact that this polish is beautiful but if you were wondering if you needed both - I don't think you do. Haute Lacquer did a comparison that you can see here.
