A Patchwork mani with Across the Universe

Remember how I did a few manis using OPI Lincoln Park After Dark Matte??? Well here is another, lol.
I actually did this just for fun, when I had the OPI Deborah Lippmann, and black in my purse for like 2 days. I didn't wear this out, but just tried it to see how it would look. I actually really liked how it turned out, even though the black is kind of hard to see, oh well. I used Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe, Sinful Black on Black and OPI Lincoln Park After Dark Matte.


  1. Across the Universe is just amazing. Is it really that 3-D looking in person? And is that the SV or would it be as glossy on it's own? I feel like I could dive into it, it has so much depth! haha cheesy, but it is beautiful. So is this look! I want to try it! It is so different, I've never seen anyone with a mani like this, so I'd love to show it off and tell me friends about your blog!

  2. You are so creative with your nails! This mani remind me of the sea, like.. when you look right in a deep part of it! I wish I had more nail polish now :) You inspired me to try the patchwork style and it's some serious fun! First try wasn't that pretty, but I'll keep experimenting.. I post a pic of my attempt on my blog if you want to take a good laugh! xD
