if you were just starting to buy glimmer mists, what colors would you start with?

Based on the LO's in your gallery these might be a good start...it's really about which ones you think you'll use the most...have fun with them!

great post...my first purchase was "Coffee Shop" but I tend to do a lot of distressing and nature photos.

When I started with GM, I bought plain, white prima flowers, and then bought 3 Glimmer Mists to spray on the flowers. I chose the colors based on what I wanted my flowers to look like.

I think tattered angels is glimmery and maya mist doesn't have any glimmer, its just matte.

I am actually curious as well to start getting more glimmer mist. All I have is suede, which is great, but I'm interested in more bright colors.

I never have spent 8 bucks on a bottle of gm. I started with one and have like 45 colors. BUT I use it on almost every single layout.

Maya Mist bottles spray a really fine mist and are opaque colors. They have some new ones I want to try.

Smooch Spritz is an AWESOME mist as well. It is metallic, very sparkly-shiny and they have GREAT colors, they are coming out with a ton new colors next couple of months. (If you check the superstore, they have a few colors, but not the latest releases nor the new ones of course.)

Hand sanitizer? I wish I would have known that because I was going to buy some just for the bottles. I didn't want to waste the sanitizer so I decided not to get it :sad:

I started with my favorites, and so should you, since you are the one paying for them.

The first one I bought was Dazzling Diamonds because I love me some dazzle, and I'm waiting for 3 more to come in. I think I ordered Delphinium, Patina and a brown-ish one, but I can't remember which brown.

I started with Marshmallow! Loved it and had to purchase a 2nd bottle. I also picked up some of my favorite colors that I work with alot - pink, blue. For my first purchase I picked 1 color for each color wave: pink, blue, green, yellow, etc. I have since continued collecting. They are a lot of fun to work with and very addicting!! Good luck!

I don't have marshmallow...but there are a few more that I want. Still slowly collecting.

I use Sapphire a TON. I have used two bottles of it. So pretty.

I personally like the following colors. Those are all the colors I have at the moments and I love them all. So basically you will probably love any color you get.
