Depending on your lighting source you may see more or less of the prismatic shimmer, but I do believe it is visible in almost every lighting setting. I love golds and glitters for New Years and originally was going to apply China Glaze Angel Wings, but changed my mind last minute ad I am glad I did!
This polish does dry to a matte-ish finish due to all the glitter. I added one coat of Ask Cosmetics top coat and then one layer of Seche Vite to add some more gloss and speed up the dry time.
I ended up adding one final coat a few days later for a refresh before New Years Eve ( I used an OPI top coat) and the gloss was just outstanding! I would definitely recommend multiple layers of topcoat for an awesome shine.
