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