"You Love It!" - Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe


Recently I had the pleasure of staying with the lovely Piff in NYC! It was an amazing time, and she is a kickass friend. Seriously. BUT...

...she did make me wear some polishes I would...*ahem*...not normally wear. You will see the worst of those atrocities from her soon - she really enjoyed seeing me suffer - but she made me promise to wear one polish as my NOTD. Out of the choices she went pretty easy on me, I have to say! This is Deborah Lippmann's Across the Universe...


Way less obnoxious on the nail than I thought it would be for such a chunky glitter. I was skeptical (very) but after I put it on, Piff kept informing me "You love it. I see it in your face. You love it." Maybe she got to me? I did feel a little foolish prancing around JFK and going into work the next day with my glitter mani, but I have to say - in the quiet moments when I was alone and not in public, I really liked looking at it. What I like about it is the depth of the base colour so the glitter isn't all -BAM!- at the surface. It's a little more mysterious than that....it reminds me of a mermaid.

Has anyone pushed you out of your polish comfort zone? Did you love/like/hate it?

Aw, YAY! Love this on you! Good for Piff for pushing you out of your comfort zone! ;-)

Rach from stuff i (s)watched and I did a stash swap a few months ago where we tried two polishes out of our comfort zone (cremes for me, shimmers for her) and then one polish in our comfort zone. It was SUPER fun, though strange for both of us.

I hope you get to do it again, and I can't wait to see the other ones you tried!

This looks amazing on you!! Sometimes stepping out of our comfort zones has a good effect, especially when it comes to nail polish =)

Whoaaaaaaa. I don't know if you know, but this looks pretty damn elegant on you. :) Sounds like you and Piff had a great time! Can't wait to see what else she made you try.

(And yup, Courtney and I did a mini stash swap! -- it proved to be lots of fun, and a kind of learning experience worth having.)

This is such a gorgeous color. It looks great on you!

I'm glad you left your comfort zone of polish. This looks fabulous on you. Keep up the wearing of "comfort zone" polishes. Next you'll have to have a full on glitter manicure.

I was actually looking for a wearable blue polish! :-)
I'm seeing DL ATU in my future!
Thanks!

Ah, she was smart in giving you a Lippmann glitter mani as a gateway drug. ;) It's the beginning of the end...

ilexica said...

I think this experiment turned out great, but then I love this polish already. Good for you for trying something different.

Across the Universe is awesome! I only own Essence Blue Addicted which is a perfect dupe!
