This is a silver foil, but it has a bunch of copper foil in there too. All blended up it gives the appearance of a champagne color. It goes on really thin, I used three coats to get it where I didn't see bald spots. Because the coats are so thin though, the don't take forever to dry. This polish doesn't really have a texture, but it benefits from a layer of topcoat to give it that smooth mirror look.
