Deborah Lippmann Lady Sings the Blues and Across the Universe

 People always ask if Lady Sings the Blues and Across the Universe are unique enough that it warrants having both polishes. I thought I would put them together in a post so you can see for yourself how amazing both of these polishes are in their own way.

Lady Sings the Blues is a navy blue jelly base with silver hex glitter and small silver glitter as well. I used two coats with a coat of Seche Vite to make it nice and smooth.

Across the Universe on the other hand has a bright blue jelly base with green, silver glitter and small silver glitter in there as well. I love this polish as much for the name as I do for the contents in the polish. This polish had a thinner formula than LStB, so I had to use three coats with a coat of Seche Vite.

 The really neat thing about both of these polishes is that you have an instant jelly sandwich without having to do any layering. So, it's practically a jelly sandwich in a bottle! ^_^


  1. Hmmmm.... I think I might need to get Lady sings the blues. I have across the universe and when I wore it I wore it sheer, it looks mermaid-ish to me.

    I have Do you think I'm sexy, if you familiar with that one it's clear jelly with red hex glitter.... I haven't figured out what to do with that one yet.

    They both look great on you!

  2. Great comparison, Rosalinda! These are nothing alike imo. I really like Across the Universe! :D

  3. I need to wear Lady Sings the Blues again! It looks so lovely on your nails!

  4. awww when will i be able to try these babies.. goshh i'm jealous hahaa.. those shades are lovely!
    can't find any reseller here in philippines...

  5. @Jenni Lee Haha AtU also reminds me of mermaids! I want that red hex glitter polish! *sigh we can't have it all!

    @Eileen I agree, but people always think that are similar just because they're blue I guess.

    @Pauline I loved LStB! So I agree! Wear it, soon!

    @Diane awwww. My heart goes out to you. I have so many lemmings for foreign polishes and I know how frustrating it is knowing you can't get to them.
