The holographic top coat has specks of white hexagon glitter, holographic glitter dots and red heart shaped glitter. The top coat can be use by itself or as a top coat. The glitter was a bit chunky and most of the red hearts glitter was stuck on the bottom. It took several tries it the hearts out. With two coats, the nail polish provided full coverage but the glitter does feel a bit rough. I usually apply a top coat to make the glitter less rough and to keep the hearts in place but it makes a bit thick and then the polish chips more easily. Overall, its nice by itself or as a top coat for roughly a day or two before it chips.
