The polish is very fast drying so if you wanted to use more than one coat for a thick, layered blizzard effect you can create that in less than 5 mins, however I find that just one coat is enough to create a lovely crisp frosty effect, and in the photos I've used only one coat of Snowflake on top of 2 coats of a base shade. Unlike a lot of effect polishes this will stand out even more if you use a high shine top coat, although I've chosen not to do that in the photos.
As you can see I've tested this using different base shades that I thought would be appropriate for winter, Christmas and parties using both plain opaque shades and metallics, and I really think it works equally well on all of them.

Glitter polishes can be a complete nightmare to remove, and while this isn't super easy, it's not too bad either and personally I think that just using one coat of this makes removing it easier.
I can't think of anything more seasonal and it's so easy to create this stunning effect, and I'm planning on trying this next with silver and emerald green base shades. I know we're only 2 days into December, but I know already that this is going to be my favourite look for winter. You will find that it's sold out in the Nails Inc on line store, however you can find a Snowflake gift set at Look Fantastic and probably even in some Boots stores and Nails Inc nail bars. Don't give up the search though - this gorgeous polish is definitely worth it.
