I applied two coats and achieved full opacity and plenty of shine. I can't think of a dupe for this colour - if you know of one, do let me know!
I applied polish to my right hand this time, as I'm airing my yellow-to-the-point-of-brown left fingernails. My left hand is wobbly at the steadiest of times.
Goddess is a gold base with plenty of glitter in varying size, mostly round. I have read reviews that say Goddess has hexagonal glitter, which made me buy it - but I can only find round glitter. Maybe it's all at the bottom! The base is just about sheer enough for layering, but you don't get enough of the large holographic glitter unless you dig around with the brush and apply the glitter, flake by flake, to your nails. Patience! Even then, the glitter doesn't spread evenly.
