i think this polish is very beautiful and the more opaque texture to the base gives it a more "classic" edge than the jelly of across the universe, though i loved that one as much or more. the polish doesn't have the depth that AtU does, but just as much beauty. another thing i found interesting, while AtU dries glossy, LSTB dries pretty matte, so a topcoat is definitely a must. this is two coats plus a coat of poshe. j'adore!
