I would describe this as a pale champagne gold foil. It's opaque in one coat, but I find best results with two. This polish is packed with shimmer/microglitter, but dries to a demi matte finish, metallic yes, but not glossy. This shade looks lovely on my fair skin, but would work well with a lot of other skintones as well. I personally find metallic gold nail polish hard to pull off, but this is not over the top and works well with my pale skin, unlike some other gold polishes.
