Glimmer Mist! How did this happen? I got a couple bottles and could only make splotchy ugly messes, so I stopped trying. Then a couple weeks ago I spritzed some on a card and loved it. Now I've got three stamped and Glimmered pieces of cardstock drying and they'll be the background cs for some LOs I'm working on.

I only have 3 bottles so far - Iridescent Gold, Dazzling Diamonds, and Bubbles. Now I realize I'm woefully under-Glimmer'd, so what are your favorite colors?

I am in the same boat. I got several bottles, and the first time I used each one, I had a mess. Now I've got more of a feel for it. I love coffee shop for brown.

I started with one bottle of Marshmellow GLimmer mist.....Now I have over 50 bottles....

I really love Suede, Cranberry Zing and Bubbles is my new fav.

They are so addictive. I also have 3 glimmer glazes, 3 Chalkboard ones and 12 Perfect Pearl mists......

Welcome to the club.....LOL

Ohh, I use brick (red) and garden fairy (light green) and old lace (I think it's called that) the most!

So far I have 2, a red and a gold..(don't know the fancy names) Once I get the hang of "spritzing" (which I am getting better at!!) I plan on investing in MORE colors!

I only have one Glimmer Mist and at first I didn't see what the big deal was. I guess that's because I only have the 'Pearl'. However - I recently decided to mix up my own Glimmer Mist (thanks to youtube and their tutorials) and I am LOVING the colors I have created so far! I've fallen in love, so you're not the only one! I was the same way with Stickles. I just didn't know what the big deal was until I got the RIGHT kind. The super sparkly kind. Now I use it on almost every project!

I'm still trying to figure out how to use the ones I have! I haven't experimented with them hardly enough...hopefully one day soon I will have time to do that and will grow to love them too!

I LOVE Glimmer Mists. I can't choose a fave, but I tend to use Wheatfields or Cranberry Zing the most.

I am also another lover of Lindy's Stamp Gang. In my opinion, they are so much better than Glimmer Mists! Their glimmer is much more shimmery and the colors are way more potent. I have almost all of the sets and can't seem to stop buying more!

The Lindy's sprays are great!! I'd say my fave GM colors are Sand and Patina, I use them the most. I just bought myself Pop Rocks and I can't wait to use it!

Great to see that there a couple of Lindy's fans here! I just ordered some of these to see what they were like..they are much cheaper than GM as well. We pay from about $11 to $14 for a bottle of GM here (Australia) and the Lindys are about $3.85 (Cant remember exactly)
