Lippmann Aggainn #NOTD
Behind on my updates, thanks to a busy week. My little boys turned four last Saturday. We flew in family and threw a party for nearly 20 kids. It was awesome fun but exhausting. I actually went naked-nailed all day Sunday. GASP!
Look at my little geocachers with their backpacks and hiking poles:
Anyway, back to nails. I don’t usually repeat polishes. I have so many I haven’t worn yet and I keep buying new ones, so wearing them more than once doesn’t make sense right now. But there is a selection of polishes in my collections that I wore back when I was still trying to break the biting habit, and thus never really got to enjoy them on longer, shaped nails.
So here we go, Deborah Lippmann’s Across the Universe. Again. My god this stuff is the stuff. I usually have a policy against buying Lippmans, because the price is too high for colors that usually gets duped within a year of release. But Across the Universe has no dupes.
I’ve spoken out about big hunks of glitter, namely my annoyance at the big, spotty hunks of glitter indie polish trend. This one is the only one where I make an exception. Because my god. It has a blackened jelly base with a blend of small glitter and blue and green big hex glitter. Layered two or three times, it looks deep and shimmery and light catching and simply marvelous.
Warning, messy cuticles ahead.
