Following on from my "Dancing in the Dark" post comes my next nail polish review of "Across the Universe" (another Deborah Lippmann polish).

As I suspected, this polish is only good on top of a base coat colour as the polish is more like a jelly polish/topcoat as shown below.

Now that I had the base coat on it was time to layer on "Across the Universe". Even with a base coat, I still needed quite a lot of layers for the glitter to look dense enough but I did love the end result! It's still a win for me even though there is a total of five layers of polish (excluding top coat ;p).
