China Glaze Atlantis, from the newest specialty collection of 50 new polishes, is a gorgeous and unique polish. Like many of the glitters from this collection, this polish is almost more like jewelry than nail polish. This particular shade is a sheer aqua tint at one coat, chock full of silver-based holographic glitter. I used 5 coats, and to see the full glory of this shade you really need a few coats. Believe me, it's worth the fuss. The depth of this shade is beyond gorgeous and it's glorious to behold. You will need two coats of a thick topcoat to combat the inevitable grittiness of the finish, but the dry-time is super-quick, even without a topcoat.
