Deborah Lippmann in Superstar

Indirect natural light

Today I'm showing you Deborah Lippmann in Superstar. You can see I have an old bottle; I think around 2010 the brand was renamed from "Lippmann Collection" to "Deborah Lippmann." Just like Deborah Lippmann was one of the originators of the mixed-size jelly glitters, she was also one of the first to release fully-buildable glitters in unique colors (at least at the high-end level), loathe as we may be to credit her. Superstar was released with the Holiday 2008 collection. It is a really gorgeous deep brown jelly with small rose gold glitter. In most lights it looks rose gold, but at times it also looks more copper (orange), which is reflected in my pictures. Unfortunately, the sun was hiding while I wore this polish and I don't feel like my pictures quite accurately capture its beauty.

The formula is great for a jelly glitter, just slightly thick. These are 2 medium coats. I had to use 2 coats of Gelous and 1 coat of Seche Vite to smooth out the glitter.

I wore this mani for Thanksgiving. Worn November 22 - 24, 2012.

Here are additional swatches of Superstar: The Polish Addict, Scrangie (here and here), Polish or Perish, Keerthamina Pretty Ballerina, tobywOO, Purple Yellow's Flickr, and Vampy Varnish comparisons (here and here).

So! It is now completely season inappropriate, but what is your go-to Thanksgiving mani? Both the blessing and the curse with indie brands is that there are now so many options for every holiday! Do you think Superstar is great - or only in comparison to what was out there in 2008?

Up next in the queue is Malice, and they should be up pretty soon because I'm so unhappy with the quality of these last two posts!


  1. That looks fabulous, like some kind of baked sugar confection! I can't believe I have had this in my untrieds for over a year - must fix that soon!

  2. UKNailRunner - Yeah, definitely try it. It's been my go-to Thanksgiving mani for the last couple years!
