What brand of spray is the best to give only a glimmer look with no color?

Glimmer Mist has one clear one in this kit (Patina clear coat). I used it at a Tattered Angels workshop and it was great!!

I LOVE GlimmerMist Dazzling Diamonds.
I used to use their Pearl one and loved it, but there is something about the Dazzling Diamonds that is just gorgeous!
I use it on all the flowers I make.

I like Pearl Glimmer Mist.

I've found that the clear coat shades aren't really clear, just much paler than regular colors (I've got one of those sets of four and mine came with Gold Clear Coat, which I successfully used to turn a paper flower yellow this weekend).

You can make your own!!!! Water/rubbing alcohol 70%, Shimmer paint Frost (Stampin' Up) and a mister!!!!! You can add color (reinker) if you want color! Or just shimmer! You can also do direct stamping with shimmer paint.

Lindy's Stamp Gang gives the shimmer without distorting the color

I use this to make my own and I use it on everything. I use half water and half rubbing alcohol (helps it to stick to non porous materials and dry faster). I use the perfect pearls powder all the time.

The color is called opal I think but it comes in container like this. Great stuff and lasts a long time

Don't choose just one!!!! Misting is VERY fun!!!!
I forgot to add, you can use food coloring as color for your own misters too!!! So many choices!!!!
I have a tub of misters, and if I don't have what I need, I make my own!!!

I have to agree with Alison on this one. I have used both the gold and pearl colors and love each of them

I use the Perfect Pearls also.
Either the Perfect Pearl or the Biscotti. If you do anything vintage, the Biscotti adds just a little bit of vintage-y shimmer.
I used the Perfect Pearl in my Christmas Cards last year. On blue w snowmen. Pretty.
