Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe Swatches

This polish retails for $18, which is waaaay more than I normally spend on nail polish. there are so many great brand and colors for much less than this, so it isn't often I feel the need to buy high end nail polish. But a needed a few extra dollars to meet the $39 minimum for free shipping at $18 is far from a few dollars, but I had a coupon code for $15 off an order of $50 so I ended up paying only $3 for the polish. Not bad, huh?

To be honest, I didn't really like this polish when I first put in on. I LOVE pictures of it, but somehow it doesn't translate as well to real life for me. But it has slowly grown on me and I now love it. Even though removal is the biggest pain in the ass ever. When i was done I had the big chunks of glitter EVERYWHERE. I even found them on my dogs.

What you're seeing in this picture isn't tipwear. It's just one of those polishes that applies really sheerly at the tips for some reason. I need to try layering this over a dark blue next time to mask the tip issue.

Thank you for reading and have a great day/night/whatever!


  1. The color is simply magnificent. It reminds me of a mermaid's scales.

  2. Very pretty, but I hate taking glitter polish off, too.

  3. So pretty. I wonder how it compares to Lippmann's Lady Sings the Blues.

  4. It's so gorgeous and interesting looking. As though it's 3D...really cool!

  5. Oh God it is so so stunning. I want so many of the Lippmann glitters.

  6. I've been wanting this polish foreverrrrr. Still want, SO BADLY!!! Ahhh I can't get over how gorgeous it is!

  7. Sooo gorgeous, omg. I don't think I could ever rationalize $18 for a nail polish... but this makes me want to.

  8. I love seeing photos of this polish. And about the removal--I love glitter polishes too, and I'm so glad I discovered the foil method of removal, it really takes the pain out of the process.

    To do: I use cotton rounds and pure acetone. About 3 spots of remover on the round, and then I cut the round into 5 pieces. I also prep some aluminum foil, cutting strips about 1"x3". Slap an acetone soaked cotton on your finger, wrap the foil around, and let it sit for 5 minutes. The glitter will come right off, I promise! I find it easier to do one hand at a time, but even 10 minutes of semi downtime is better than scrubbing uselessly!

  9. That is a super neat polish! Too bad about the tip thing, though. I had been eyeballing a few of these polishes but I won't pay so much for somthing that applies weird.


Thank you so much for your comments! I appreciate them all and read every one!
