Au Champagne is a true white polish with just a hint of ivory. It dries to a satin finish, which I adore. It also has the slightest pearl shimmer to it. Combined with the satin finish, it reminds me a bit of white velvet. Love! I realized after purchasing this that this is really my only true white polish. I have never cared for a white polish before, but this I really adore. White polish to me just feels so 90s - which was confirmed when I watched the first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer today (which I also love). Something about the finish on this polish really makes it feel modern and fresh.
Au Champagne covered extremely well. It was pretty much opaque after two coats. You can see the slightest VNL, but you really have to look for it. There were somethings I didn't care for, however. Mainly, this polish had a tendency to settle into every nook and cranny of the nail bed. The photos you see are POST clean up. Also, if you don't let the polish dry completely before the next coat, you end up with a few patches along the cuticle line when you apply the second coat (as you can see in the picture below).
