Lippmann Collection - Across the Universe AND ONTO MY FAVORITES LIST!

Trust me, I understand that everyone and their mother has desired for, swatched and raved about this polish, and please understand that I hate nothing more than appearing like I am hopping onto the proverbial band wagon.

I have to say, though... everyone was right. ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

Lippmann Collection - Across the Universe

Did I balk at the price tag of this high-end polish? Hell yes, I did... for months. One can only take so much drooling on her laptop before she slams her credit card number into Nordstrom's website and prays for the best, and boy did my prayers work. From the deep blue jelly that makes you feel like you're looking into the depths of the ocean to the variety of blue, green and silver hex and small glitter, this polish is absolutely stunning. Oh, and about the wear... five days, MINIMAL tip wear. That's right, I said it. MINIMAL. And I wore it for five days, which must be some sort of record for me, but frankly, I didn't want to take it off.


What do you guys think of this baby? Are you still as in love today as you were when you first saw this lovely polish?

Happy day, all!

I've already told you this, but this photo makes me - ME, a non-glitter lover, heck even an anti-glitter person - want this polish so badly!!! It looks amazing on you!! So to answer your question - I was never in love with this colour, but now I am!

Wow! This is really lovely on you. I've been feeling lukewarm about this polish and Bad Romance, but this looks so good on you that I am starting to change my mind!

Grace said...

This is actually the first swatch I've seen that makes me want this polish. Looks lovely on you. How many coats?

Margo said...

I just got this one...and I TOTALLY LOVE IT. I did feel guilty about paying that much for nail polish for awhile though...but it WAS SO WORTH IT. This polish is amazing! When I have it on my nails, I feel like I can do anything, hahahaha. Seriously though, it has that kind of power.

@kittytokaren - thank you again, lovely! You need to tell me when you get this, because you SHOULD. Ha!

@Varnish Vixen - Thank, you, maam! I just bought Bad Romance as well and I can't wait to try it. Swatches to come!

@Grace - Thanks, Grace! This is four coats - I know, a lot, right? The thing is that the jelly needs to build up, and I like the fact that it makes the glitter look like it is floating in the polish. It dries fairly quickly, too!

@Ping - I'm so glad that there are other happy customers out there like me. This polish is epic! Ha!

I never thought I would consider paying that much for a nail polish, but this is the polish that could change my mind.

I love this polish. I swore I wouldn't buy anymore of this brand. I so hated that Funky Chunky Monkey or whatever it was. I haven't succumbed yet but I will.

@hallmarkjunkie - I knew it, I knew it! For the bottle ALONE, it's worth it! I want to build it a pedestal and put it on my desk.

@Lucy - I hear about the Funky Chunky debacle, and I can understand why you would be hesitant! This one is absolutely perfect though, I promise!

Grace said...

I thought it must be quite a few coats, but I really like that it darkens and sort of mellows out. I'm not a big glitter person, and all the other swatches of this were too disco-ball for me, but at 4 coats I actually really like it.

I held out and held out and held out. Then I saw your pic, and HAD to have it. And Bad Romance while I was at it. ;) They arrived today, and they are STUNNING. Thank you!!!! Just goes to show - there's no such thing as late coverage or too much exposure for polishes so deserving. :)
