Hopefully everyone had a nice weekend. It’s currently 80 degrees outside right now, a nice surprise to my birthday weekend, it’s never this warm this time of year. All the spring flowers have started to bloom, yay!
My sister gave me this lovely polish this weekend. I recently posted about the only other Deborah Lippmann polish that I have, Call Me Irresponsible, and even though I didn’t have a positive opinion about that polish, I was so excited to receive this beauty! Across The Universe is like a dream to any polish lover.
I’m not satisfied with these photos, it’s so much better in real life! I know many polish lovers have raved the beauty and awesomeness of this polish since it was released for the Fall 2010 duo. But it seriously deserves it. I mean, just look at it! A navy blue jelly base with green and light blue hexagon glitter AND blue micro glitter?? I love how dark the base color is, it allows the glitter to just come through and stand out.
It’s almost obvious when I say that I don’t have anything like this polish. It’s too unique and gorgeous. Though, I won’t be fully blinded by its beauty. It is slightly difficult to get the hexagon glitter to disperse evenly. And in the sunlight, this jelly base isn’t fully opaque. Probably my fault with the application. (I’m not feeling too well, I think I have a stomach bug!) I used three coats, and each coat dried quicker than expected! And not very gritty at all to the touch.
Regardless I will say that this polish is a hands down must have for anyone who collects polish. It’s so beautiful, like a work of art. I can’t stop staring at the bottle!

For my birthday, my mom made me a homemade pound cake with maple whipped cream per my request. SO GOOD
