I applied two coats total but could have gotten away with one thick coat. I usually prefer two though. The formula was a little thick, so before applying the second coat I added some thinner to my bottle. The finish is a foil, but I feel like it's updated for summer and more creamy. In low light and in the shade the polish shines silver, but in the sun and direct light it shimmers more gold. I love the gold I this colour, it really complements the green/blue hue.
Zuza actually reminds me of another polish I have from Sally Hansen, Honeydew. Honeydew actually has a faint shimmer of silver rather than a foil or shimmery finish, but they still feel close in colour in my mind. You can see when I wore it last summer HERE.
