Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe

This polish got as much attention as any of the water marbles or other more complicated manicures I do. So many people stopped and asked to look more closely at my nails, sales clerks, waitresses, other people sitting in restaurants. It was kinda crazy! I bought this polish back in the fall and haven't worn it until now. It's now one of my favorites. It is blue and green glitter in a blue jelly base. The blue jelly subdues the glitter and keeps it it from looks garish. It is a lovely and fascinating color; it looks like a mermaid's tail, or something sunken under water. So, so pretty! The application was typical for a glitter, and totally workable, especially considering the chunkiness and density of the hexagonal pieces of glitter. It took three-four coats for opacity. I think I will try it over a navy blue layer just so it doesn't require so many coats. There was some shrinkage with this polish, another reason a plain, navy blue, cream base might be a good idea. The bottom line though, is that this polish is so pretty and so cool, it's worth it. 


  1. its sooooo gorgeous isn't it. Have you tried Lady Sings The Blues ? Possibly even more sensational and dramatic xx

  2. I just googled LStB and you're right-- it's gorgeous. Hmmm, I may have to buy that one, too :)
