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 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.

Favorite polish!

I love this polish. I usually don't use glittery polishes since they are so hard to remove, not this one. Across the Universe is an amazing look over dark colored base. And it has become my favorite nail polish.

So beautiful

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.

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!

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!
