As with any glitter polish, you have to be careful with the application to ensure you get to your level of sparkle. Patience is required to get every piece of glitter in the right spot if going for a top coat look and also if you are a full on coverage sparkle kind of girl. I am the latter and you just have to take care in almost setting the polish on your nail rather than brushing it on.
I have used a lot of glitter polishes in all price ranges and this one is definitely better than cheaper products on the market because it is packed full of glitter! It goes on smoothly and has a lot of sparkle.
I got this as a gift a while back, and I love it. Unlike many glitter polishes I've tried, it dries smooth and is long-wearing. My only critique is that when it's first applied, it feels a little streaky and sticky, but it smooths out as it dries.
I first saw this polish several years ago on a beauty blog and decided immediately I had to have it. It was the first polish that tugged at my heart and lead me into collecting cool and indie polishes. Across the Universe is still in my personal Top 10 to this day. It has the sophistication of a navy with a pop of glitter.
If I had to limit myself to a single nail polish color for the rest of my life, this would be the one.
Don't believe the description, though- three coats is the way to go with this baby. On that first coat, you'll wonder what on earth this thin, streaky mess is all about. On the second, "eh, not so bad".
On the third, it truly comes into its own, with gorgeous depth and complexity and layers of stunning turquoise, navy and green. Be sure to nudge the larger glitter away from the tip of the nail if it sort of overhangs- and be prepared for the attention- Across the Universe is not for the color-shy!
I have a collection of over 130 polishes (last time I checked), and this is fairly easily my favorite. It does take a few layers, but the end result is STUNNING. Deborah Lippmann has really quite an excellent formula all around!
Love this nail varnish, the color of the glitter in it is JUST so beautiful. I got sooo many compliments when I wore it on my nails. Very satisfied and very worth the money!
This polish is absolutely beautiful! The polish is a jelly (meaning it's pretty sheer) so you should do 2-3 layers if you wear it alone. This creates depth to it that is absolutely gorgeous! You can also wear just one coat over a navy or deep purple. Everyone who commented on it said that it reminded them of the deep ocean or the galaxy. Deborah Lippmann is quickly becoming my favorite brand!
This is gorgeous nail color. However it takes at least three coats of polish to cover opaque. In addition it is very streaky to apply. I still love it.
Gorgeous, because of the jelly polish base and the way it layers, each nail becomes a deep sea glitter-fest that seems to swim in and out of view at different angles. I've never owned anything like this before in my 26 years, and it dries far more consistently that I expected. 4 layers with a good base and a nice thick topcoat make this really shine.
You can also try wearing it over a dark polish to bring out the microglitter!
