Deborah Lippmann Supermodel Nail Lacquer

I’m Gonna be a Supermodel, and My Hair Will Shine Like the Sea!

Deborah Lippmann Supermodel Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.5 fl. oz.) is a sheer, jelly cherry red that leans a little orange-coral. It’s glossy, and it’s genuinely designed to be sheer–it’s not meant to be opaque, so keep that in mind. It has a very squishy, jelly look on nails. I do think this will complement warmer skin tones best, but it doesn’t pull extremely orange, so cooler skin tones may still enjoy it. Where Supermodel stands out is in the formula–streak-free, a dream to apply, and doesn’t take eons to dry. But really, the lack of streakiness makes it this sheer a pleasure to swatch.

  • Product: 29/30
  • Value: 7/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: This may not be the most unique shade, so it’s not a run-don’t-walk kind of purchase, but if it’s a color and look that you dig, it’s certainly worth a look. The formula is outstanding and true to Lippmann’s range.

    Beautiful. And I am so obsessed with coral-y colors at the moment. I have to have it!

    That’s my favorite nail color, so I already have about five takes on it… but if I were to get another, this’d be it. Gorgeous. :)

  3. i am really not a jelly polish person so this is a no go for me!

    It’s really pretty for summer nails. But it reminds me of Essie Geranium, which I already have (and love).

  5. Reese

    I love it! It reminds me of Essie’s California Coral.

    BTW, A+ for incorporating Jill Sobule lyrics. lol

    I LOVE jelly polish. First fell in love when I was a teen & bought some Rimmel jelly polish. It’s so fun to look at.

  7. This red-coral is so beautiful… simply gorgeous!

  8. Nora

    Looks exactly like Essie Lollipop!

  9. Diana

    That “jelly” finish is freakin’ crazy…BUT I think I love it!

  10. Lauren

    I wonder how many people are going to get the ‘Supermodel’ reference lol

    Supermodel is awesome! I swatched it at one coat and was so impressed with the non-streakiness that it ended up coming home with me on my next shopping trip. It’s a really rockin’ color for summer. :-D

  12. amelia

  13. ChulaMc

    Love the Jill Sobule quote!

    I’ll pass on this polish though…

    omg. i dont even like red nail polishes (i only have ruby red slippers which is really just an awesome glitter) and a mini from the urban decay set but i really really really want this

  15. This is so gorgeous. I am such a sucker for beautiful red nails. Since I am so pale, red nails always looks great on me and this colour is stunning.
