I was looking at getting some glimmer mist (I am not really sure I am ready to try and make my own) so I thought I would ask, what is your fav colour and why?

Which is the most versitile? Which do you use the most?

I really like Iridescent Gold. It's great for when you want a subtle hint of shimmer, and it pretty much goes with anything.

I also love a good brown mist, such as Suede or Coffee Shop. Brown is another neutral that will accent anything beautifully.

Those would be good, versatile, sort of neutral ones to start with. I also LOVE Patina and Candy Apple Red for pops of brilliant color.

These colors are the ones I use the most.

Hope this helps!

The irradessent gold is also a blending color. Squirt it OVER other bolder colors to saturate and blend them into each other. WAY cool! I have many glimmer mists but the gold is so subtle and blendy - I use it way more than any others.

I only have about ten or eleven colors, but the one I reach for the most is Iridescent Gold. It gives a gorgeous, but subtle shimmer. I love it.

I depends on what you like. I layer them a lot, but I def use dazzling Diamonds, Sapphire, Suede, Candy Apple Red, Patina, Vintage Pink, English Ivy and Antique Brass a lot. I have a lot of colors, but I think I use those the most.

*only*?

walnut gold, silver, and patina are the ones I've used most, but that's because I was using them on specific projects. I just got coffee shop, and I agree it's a good basic color to have.

My favorite is pearl, it can be used on any color for slight shimmer and the color of the pp stays pretty true.

I only have three right now, but I'm loving Raven. I love it's versatility. Sometimes it comes out a grey/blue color and sometimes it's a darker purplish color. It's very pretty. I've used it on some paper flowers I made.

I wish you could buy a set of them instead of one bottle at a time. I would love to see a tarter set of about 10 of them.....then I would not just guess.

I bought a set at the Tattered Angels booth at the Scrapbook Expo. It was a great deal, and it featured a couple colors that were not ordinarily sold separately.

Vanilla Breeze. It makes the most perfect vintagey glimmery tea dyed looking tags!
