Indoors, 2 coats with a coat of Seche Vite. Superstar is very densely packed copper glitter in a dark brown base. It almost makes the base look black. I think my second coat was too thick and overkill you can see the lumpy texture on my nails. This drives me crazy since I have to have smooth and shiny nails! All that aside, I do like the glitter and coverage of this polish.
