QUICK REVIEW: An undeniably unique shade that’s perfect for Summertime toes.
the REVIEW (04/18/2011): Monster love glitter. Monster love teal and aqua. LOL! Seriously, I think I first saw this online during a Nordstrom Anniversary event – but it was sold out. Initially I really wanted Bad Romance which is a blackened purple glitter – but when I saw them in person, the mermaid-on-acid glittery glory of Across the Universe won me over. As always, Lippmann polish is free of toluene, formaldehyde, DBP and animal testing.Since this is a slightly sheer shade – it has a sheer navy base infused with bright blue and green glitter – you either need to apply 2-3 coats to get a good opacity or “cheat” like me and apply it over a metallic teal base. The photo really doesn’t do this color justice. Its much more vibrant and lively than pictured. Although I typically like softer more seashell inspired nails for the Summertime, this blackened blue-green is the perfect partner to the traditional bronze and brights that accompany Summer collections. The formula was easy to apply and the glitter made this pedi last about 2 weeks without touching up.
Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe is the perfect addition to your nail polish galaxy. Be adventurous on your toes if this is a little too glam for your tips. I personally love how it serves as a mini-reminder that while I can still indulge my inner Rockstar!
