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.

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. :)

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!

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.

My absolute favorite

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!

Favorite Polish of All Time

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 it!

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!

Outta Sight.

You can never have enough DL polish. She has so many great colors and now the perfect glitter polish. So many people say too much glitter on your nails is gaudy but I love glitter.
