Deborah Lippman Goes Interplanetary
Some good news for those of you who’ve been waiting on the release of Deborah Lippman’s Across the Universe nail polish since it debuted on models’ fingertips at Lela Rose’s Fall presentation: The lacquer has finally become available for purchase. And now the bad news: It went on backorder as soon as it bowed. Trust us, though, Lippman’s aqua and blue glitter-flecked varnish is worth the shipping delay. Similar to her rainbow confetti holiday hit, Happy Birthday, Across the Universe incorporates fine navy glitter as well as larger hexagonal pieces of sapphire and turquoise sequins that, when applied, haphazardly spread across the nail bed. Unlike Happy Birthday, the new shade uses a tinted blue base, and looks best layered over opaque colors, like, say, a pastel mint green or a powder blue. If you’ve been following spring and summer polish trends, you likely have a few bottles of those laying around, and there’s nothing like a texturized top coat to help smoothly transition them right into fall.
