As many other much more experienced and sage reviewers before me have noted, there isn't much copper in this polish, but there is a beautiful deep rose gold/orange/pale olive shimmer at various angles. It's quite watery and maybe 4 thin coats would have more coverage, but I was happy at three. The brush is perfect and I made sure to wait at least a full minute between coats, so no cuticle drag. I daubed on some Utopia Dragon Heart on the accent nails. Out the Door topcoats, smooth and perfect.
