If I had to pick just one kind of makeup out of all to live with, I’d be nail polish. It’s my first love and the fact that pretty much any colour will do is what makes it so special. I don’t consider myself to be one with the best nails, I spend very little time grooming them. But I do love nail polish, always have.
This particular one I’ve wanted for a very very long time. It was always on my wishlist and I can’t tell you how excited I was when I got it. Like a kid opening birthday presents.
For anyone who loves glitter polish, Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe is a perfect one. The name gives the polish a very cosmic perspective and it looks very complex. It’s a sheer navy blue base, which is quite dark with large blue and green hex glitter coupled with finer blue glitter. Due to the sheer base and dense glitter, it gives a very nice layered effect where the glitters tends to change it’s colour and it gives the polish a lot of depth.
The formula is just excellent. You get about 3 coats to get a nice opaque finish. The glitter spreads evenly without pooling at the edges, it also doesn’t sink. It’s thin in consistency and all round very easy to apply, it does take a while for the layers to dry though.
It has a really nice glossy finish, no topcoat has been used in the photos below. It also wears really well for a good week. Just minor tipwear if you are very handsy like me!
Glitter polishes are generally a pain to remove. This one isn’t very different but the glitter doesn’t stick to the nails like it does in some. The packaging is lovely, similar to Nyx nail polishes. The brush is also medium sized and decent.
You get 15 ml of product for $18. It’s not the most expensive nail polish, but you do get excellent quality. For a very unique shade I think it’s definitely worth it!
