Deborah Lippmann: Across the Universe

Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe (2 coats)

Deborah Lippmann you are a genius. A GENIUS! From hearing the name of this polish (I love the Beatles and Fiona Apple versions) I was really excited about trying this one. I don't even know where to begin. This polish is just so fashion forward. It has green and blue large hexagonal glitter with loads of small blue glitter pieces. You may remember how I was saying that Zoya's Charla reminds me of a mermaid, well, so does this one. The large glitter rings true to mermaid scales. The base is a dark navy jelly that, despite being a jelly, is very opaque and only needed 2 coats which really surprised me! This was my first Deborah Lippmann polish, so I am quickly going to mention my overall thoughts on the bottle and brush. I am very happy with the bottle since it is square and has some detailed lines on it. I can't think of another brand with a similar bottle (correct me if I'm wrong). The brush is circular, not flat, and I had no problems with the application. If you are interested in this polish, it is a Nordstrom Exclusive and retails for $18. Overall, this is definitely in my top polishes of 2010!
