I had a job interview yesterday so I had my nails painted a very boring yet professional pale pink jelly-esque color. I like it, obviously because I own it, but it is so not me and I bought it just for job interviews. I know that I need to enter the professional world and I can’t be wearing crazy colors on my nails because it has the tendency to send the wrong message. So after my job interview was over, I promptly came home and changed my nail polish color to one of my favorites in my collection. Deborah Lippmann “Across the Universe” is a new add to my collection, and when I say new I mean a few months ago, but it has made it to my top 5 favorite polishes of all time, and thats saying alot!! This navy jelly with bright blue and green glitter looks so much brighter and more vibrant in person and is just so unique and special I can’t help but brag about my nails to friends.
This picture is older and taken in a different light and I was so excited when I found it randomly on my computer! It seriously doesn’t even look like the same polish as the picture above but I promise you it is, the light is just hitting the glitter absolutely perfectly in this picture. This shows better what this polish actually looks like in person. It is bright and dark at the same time and it is my favorite blue polish of all time.
Formula and Application: I don’t know for sure if Deborah Lippmann polishes are 3-Free or 4-Free. I googled that for about 30 minutes before I gave up. Its some amount of bad chemical free. The bottle is a perfect square, glass bottle, with a blue cap and skinny long brush. The formula is pretty thick and the best way I’ve found to get the best amount of glitter is to just wipe polish off one side of the brush. Its harder to get a clean manicure with these glitters because of the amount of glitter, it tends to not be even around the cuticles. The dry time is a little long, but I found that I was being so careful with the application of the first coat that it took me a while to finish. By the time I had finished both hands, the first finger I painted was dry.
Out of all the Deborah Lippmann’s I own, this is my hands down favorite. I could name off my almost double digit collection of DL’s, and thats a lot because lippmann polishes range from $16-$18, but I won’t because then nail of the day posts in the future might get boring. What do you guys think of Deborah Lippmann polishes? Does anyone own Across the Universe? What do you think of the price for a DL polish?
