Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe

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.

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!

<3 It!

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

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.

Beautiful!

Bought this polish almost a year ago and at first I was a little skeptical towards the hefty price tag but I'm totally glad I did! Have gotten plenty of use out of it and made me want to get lots of others deborah lippmann polishes!

Sparkle!

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.

Great glittery polish

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.

Great glitter polish!

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.

The best kind of gateway

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.
