NOTD: Supporting the Vancouver Canucks Lippmann Across The Universe & China Glaze Blue Sparrow

Well, it's really time to support the Vancouver Canucks. For those of you not in the loop, today is Game 7 of the Stanley Cup NHL Finals. Vancouver needs this game to fulfill a billion dreams of hockey fans from Vancouver, Toronto, Hong Kong and Wagga Wagga, Australia (hey Jess! ;).  Am super excited and absolutely cannot wait until the puck drops!

I've been wearing blue and green eye shadow on game days, as well as blue and green nail polish through the playoffs.  Now I love Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer glitters, especially Across The Universe. Across The Universe is a sheer marine blue with blue, green and light blue glitter varying in size from small to chunky. It seems like it was made for an instant Vancouver Canucks manicure.  My only issue is that it takes about 4 layers to build it up to opacity, leaving a ton of chunky light blue, green and darker blue glitter.  Great, but I find it a bit of a waste in product.  I've layered it here over a coat of China Glaze Blue Sparrow Nail Lacquer.  It gives an instant brightness, cuts down drying time and cuts down the quantity of precious Lippmann Nail Lacquer that I use.

Loves it!  In Vancouver and across Canada, pick up Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer at Murale and Holt Renfrew.
