I cannot believe I didn't find out about this sooner! This is the prettiest polish I've owned (tho this might soon be changed since I got a package of DL glitters on the way). Usually I stay away from blue polishes because they tend to make my hands look 'dirty'. God knows why... But not this little darling. It kind of looks like a jewel up peacock feather from far, and is the only glitter polish that is flattering under all kinds of light. Love it!

Just awful. This was my first DL nail polish and what a waste of money! It just doesn't dry! I had it on my nails for over two hours and it was still gooey. And it dried all lumpy. I am so disappointed and will never buy another nail polish of hers again.

I had first seen this color online and knew immediately that I had to own it. I didn't want to buy it online for fear of the color not being what the photos looked like, but when they started selling Deborah Lippmann polishes at Ulta, I knew I had to check them out. Of course I was weary about the $19 price tag, but I figured, I've spent way more on way less, so what the hell. After buying it, I couldn't wait to try it. The polish is very thin and it took at least 3 layers to get the result I was looking for. The color itself is beautiful. It's a shimmery royal blue with small teal and green circular flecks. The polish has lasted a full work week (with the help of Seche Vite top and base coats). Although the price of it is a little pricey, I absolutely love the color and can't wait to buy more.

I know I'm in the minority when I say this was one of the ugliest polishes I've ever worn in my life. But it really was. Across the Universe is a sheer dark teal with lots and lots of big glitter. The idea is to layer it on for "depth". That's what makes it so special, allegedly. After 3 carefully applied coats, it just looked like chunks of glitter drowning in murk. Glitter is supposed to be pretty! Not submerged under a coat of gross, ugly blue-green jelly. I really hated this one.

This was my first DL glitter polish purchase and I couldn't be more pleased. Across the Universe is a lovely deep midnight blue gel base with teal, green and blue glitter pieces suspended throughout. Such a unique shade. It applies easily and smoothly. It's opaque in 3 coats. If you're looking for a unique shade with a quality formula this is it. I love how fun, yet wearable it is. DL really makes the best quality glitter polishes on the market. I'm a cream, no frills kind of girl, but I have no qualms about rocking this polish at all. Love it! Very highly recommend.

This is a really fun nail polish. Since I work in a conservative environment, I use this on my toes or when I am on vacation. It is a bit of a challenge to get smooth because of the large glitter pieces, but it is worth the effort. I am a big fan of Deborah Lippmann polishes.

One of the prettiest polishes ever! I think the formula is great, very thin so the final result is never a thick goopy mess. I also was very impressed at how easy it was to remove compared to other glitters, I guess that's why I don't mind the pricetag on glittery Lippmanns. Also have to note it's a bit sheer, 3 coats for me are usually good. I'd rebuy and recommend the color!

I love the look of this nail polish, I think it is one of the most beautiful polishes I own, but I always dread putting it on because it takes forever to get off. Especially if you paint on enough layers to make it semi-opaque. I've tried using it on top of darker opaque shades, but it just doesn't look as good as when you layer it on it's own.

You need patience, dedication and many coats (!) to work successfully with this product given its (i) glitter content and (ii) sheerness of pigment.

Having said that, if you can get over these hurdles the end result will be a unique colour and appearance. Works well as one coat applied over other strongly pigmented polishes.

Finally, be prepared for problems with glitter migration and obstinacy, when it comes to attempts at product removal!
