I used 3 coats and the application and drying time was just fine. This is an interesting shade that is mainly a bright gold shimmer. I would hesitate to say it's a glitter, because the pieces, although less refined than a typical shimmer, are not standing out to me as individual pieces. You can see the pieces in the macro photo above, but it's as if they're all melded together, and there's even the slightest hint of copper and silver mixed in. Almost like a molten gold. I'm having a difficult time explaining the finish on this one (you think?!!), but I rather like it. If anyone else has this shade, I'd like to hear your more coherent thoughts!
