If this shade is a little too intense for your 8 a.m. client meeting, Deborah Lippmann the Stripper to Go will gently remove every trace. 

Deborah Lippmann

Birchbox Breakdown

While we have a soft spot for the disco balls of middle school dances, we’re nonetheless glad to see that glitter’s all grown up. This sophisticated lacquer by Deborah Lippmann is almost as mesmerizing as the classic Beatles song. The transparent deep blue base is clustered with tiny iridescent turquoise, green, and blue chips, which, to paraphrase Mr. Lennon, will shine around you like a million suns.

How it Works

Despite its three-dimensional appearance, this gem-packed polish sweeps on smoothly. The lacquer boasts nail-boosting ingredients like biotin, green tea and aucoumea extract (a natural tree resin from West Africa), and is never tested on animals.

How to Use

Begin by coating nails with a base coat, and then carefully add the polish. For a denser effect, try a second layer. Finish with a top coat.

So beautiful
Purchased

I was nervous about ordering this one. I purchased Let's Go Crazy a few months ago and I was disappointed. This experience was the complete opposite.

I did my nails with this on Tuesday or Wednesday. One coat of some other polish in a dark shimmery blue, then one coat of Across the Universe over it. No top coat. Today is Sunday and there's minimal, noticeable only to me, chipping just today. My nails are still beautiful. Every time I see them I feel happy. They catch the light in the most amazing ways. I have received the most amazing compliments on my nails this week. One person even told me that I looked like a walking work of art including my nails and my hair (which is also blue at present.)

The formula goes on very nice. If I have a complaint it is that this polish seems to take FOREVER to dry. I had to fix a few mess ups when I did my nails initially. I find that a little bit limiting, because I do my nails in the evening and sometimes I doze off after doing so. In this case, I nodded off and when I woke up a short time later a couple of them had to be fixed and they were all still far from dry. But if you can just control yourself from tryng to do anything at all till your nails are dry...the result is spectacular.

This one is completely worth the splurge. My best Xmas gift to myself.

Stunning

It's beautiful on its own, but also fantastic layered. Try it over Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream for a really rich effect.

Love it!
Purchased

I have never, ever, had a nail polish that lasts as long as this one does. Plus the colors are so bright and shiny. It's perfect to add on top of a color!

Mature sparkles for a college student

I'm pretty young and enjoy a playful nail and this color is perfect. It's dark with enough big sparkles to add a cool texture. I wear this to my job as a waitress and I always get compliments!

Beautiful nail polish

This is my favorite nail polish of all time. I often find myself reluctant to use it because I don't want to ever run out of it. You need a base color (I use a navy OPI polish) to make it look opaque, but after a couple coats your nails look fantastic. A bit pricey, but worth it for a little treat.

wow
Purchased

I really love this polish and received so many compliments on it. It goes on a little light, so 3 coats will get you ample coverage on your nails. It started chipping after a day or so but I didn't use a top coat and I painted my nails at work so it was rushed...lol! But if done correctly and with ample time, i'm sure it could have lasted longer with no chips. but i'm very happy with this polish!

Favorite!

This is one of my favorite nail polishes! I use a cobalt blue as my base color with 2 coats of Across the Universe. Super sparkles! I'm almost distracted while typing!

Definitely a splurge, but so beautiful! Really love how this looks on my nails - either alone or layered over another color. :)

One of the better Lippmann polishes!

For some reason I have awful luck with Deborah Lippmann nail polish. This makes me mad because she has the best colors. I've tried a few nudes and a red and the consistency has always been thick.

This shade was part of the gift bag at a work event and is one of my favorite polishes I've used in awhile. Clearly not for everyday corporate America but really easy to use and take off if you only do 2 coats.

Could not get it off
Purchased

The color was great, but it took forever to get the polish off. I ended up soaking my nails in a bowl of nail polish remover for 15 minutes before all the glitter would finally come off.
