Spun Sugar is a metallic, light pewter--a mix of gold and silver and gray--with threads of metallic shimmer. It was mostly opaque after two coats, but there were very visible brush strokes. The consistency was a little thick but manageable. I noticed the polish dried down rather quickly (not totally unexpected, given it's a metallic). I tested this shade for wear, and it managed seven days but had a fair amount of tip wear (more than average for me). I couldn't think of a dupe for this one based on past polishes I've reviewed! It has a sweet, sugary scent.
