Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.5 oz.) is a deep, inky navy blue jelly base with electric blue glitter and teal and green hexagonal glitter. I wasn’t quite able to get an opaque with three coats, but perhaps with a fourth coat or just a more precise application, it could get there. I like the way the glitter is mixed in color, because it gives it a very interesting effect. I feel like I haven’t seen a shade quite like this, which is often true of many Lippmann shades, just because of the way the glitter is used. Application was smooth overall, but remember to wait for each coat to dry so that you don’t pull the glitter out of place.

RECOMMENDATION: This shade impresses me more–love the mix of glitter sizes, shapes, and colors.
