I was pretty much always going to be attracted to this polish simply because of the name. I'm a huge Beatles fan and Across the Universe is a brilliant song and as it turns out it's also I brilliant polish. Across The Universe is my first Deborah Lippmann polish but it won't be my last. I was always hesitant to spend so much on a single polish but it was worth it in my opinion. The sheer base with the different size, shape and colour glitter is just gorgeous. Like all glitter it was a pain to remove but the effect was worth the hassle. Love it!
