Bleeding Glitter List

Note 5/08/17: This was a perfectly valid and helpful entry but with the selection of solvent resistant glitters that are available now- and how many of those listed here that aren't anymore, I'm not sure it's relevant. I've removed all the links since they were dead.

I own a lot of glitter, no question aboout it, some good, some not and I keep track of everything. This is my master list of glitters and what they do when submerged in polish, whom I bought them from and what grade they are. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Hobby Lobby, in addition to arts and crafts supplies they sell home decor, household goods etc. If nothing is listed under "Other Info", the glitter behaves. Information will be added as it is learnt. All of these glitters have been featured somewhere on this blog, use the "glitter" or "bleeding glitter" label. -MK

  4. This is an amazing resource - thank you for compiling it :)

    I don't know if you've recently used any glitters from Glittie.com, but I had emailed them asking if their glitters were solvent resistant and this is the response I received:

    We do carry some solvent resistant glitters. Here is the list of one that will work in nail polish.

    Fushia
    Plum
    Black Ice
    Platinum
    Ruby Red
    Berrylicious
    Ocean Blue
    Blue Teal
    Chocolate
    Lavender

    We will be getting more in the next few weeks also.

    I hope this helps!

    1. You're welcome, thank you for visiting and for passing on that info. I've never ordered from them and since they aren't on my Glitter Supplier page, there must've been a reason but I'm not sure what it was. I'll have to look into them again this coming week.

      As far as "solvent resistance", seeing is believing. A lot of companies say that or suggest it and they are wrong.

      Delete
    2. Glitties actually carries over 200 different solvent resistant glitter color and sizes. They also offer glitter in bulk bags for serious buyers.

  5. Hey MK, Have you found tinsel glitter that doesn't bleed? I havent' had any luck!

    Thanks for being awesome and helping all of us! You deserve a medal of Franken Honor!

    1. No, I'm afraid not but then again I haven't really looked. Martha Stewart's were a waste and thats the last time I bought any. I know Alsa, the automotive co., sells 3 sizes of silver holo tinsel glitter and they don't bleed but outside buying the sample deck, the price is going to be high. I have a couple little jars from a nail art set but my experience with those is rarely positive so I haven't tested them. Today's Sunday, I'll go hunting for you on Monday.

    2. Ashley, answering someone else's question about glitter led me to the shop You Mix Cosmetics on eCrater. I haven't bought from them before so I don't check the stock frequently but I saw today that they have an entire section of bar glitters, all supposed to be solvent resistant. Link below.

  6. Thank you so much! I have bought the martha ones too what a waste of money. I ordered my Alsa Pack, but haven't gotten my pack yet. Silver tinsels are always ok.

    Thanks of the link I will check it out!

    Thanks again!

  7. Where can I find MATTE glitter? Does anyone know?!

    1. You Mix Cosmetics, Glitties, The Glitter Source, Art Glitter (possibly), TKB Trading... I get asked this question constantly. I'm going to put some things together.

  8. Any updates on the GU glitters? I would really love to know if these are solvent resistant

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah, obviously I didn't update all of the Glitter Unique info. There are some I still haven't used but let me go through my cook book and add what I have. It will only take me a few minutes.

      Delete
    2. The owner of GU (and Youmix) tests their glitters so, for the most part, they're solvent resistant (if they're not, contact her).

      Contribution: The "Opalescent" lavender and gold glitters (poly, iridescent/clear) flecked badly, from Kit Kraft.

      Delete
  9. I have yet to see any flaking, bleeding or warping from any of the 15ish glitters that I've ordered from Glitter Unique. There is also an Etsy shop called The Glitter Source that has a selection of good solvent resistant glitters. I've only gotten 4 from them, but they've all been great.

  11. hello, I am looking for glitter that will not bleed. I am sorry I do not really understand the chart. Which one does not bleed. I spoke to Kit Kraft and they said that polyester glitter should not bleed,however, i should still sample it. Which glitter should i buy.

    Thank you very much in advance!!!

    1. I thought it was rather self explanatory but here goes: avoid the ones listed as a flecker, bleeder or both, and look for the good ones listed as performing well and is color fast.

  12. I tried the TKB Gold Hex Shapelies and they curl, but don't bleed. I was so sad cuz they were exactly what I wanted.

  13. Wow! What a fantastic resource :) Thank you so much for maintaining and sharing all of this information! It is so difficult to find places that say solvent resistant, and actually mean it! :(

    Does anyone share any concerns about using the auto-glitter in mixes?

    1. I don't. Polyester is polyester.

    2. Yeah, I figured as much. I'll have to start exploring those options more!

      Thanks :)

  15. Anyone with experience with Amerikan Body Art glitters? I purchased quite a few samples from them.

  16. I was recently at the local Michaels store and saw they had a load of glitters, and I would have bought, if I had known if they were going to be ok to add into my polish. Anyone have experience with Recollections™ glitter ? Or the ArtMinds brand?

    1. My reply is tardy but I thought I'd answer anyway. I have no experience with those brands but the Recollections brand remind me of Martha Stewart Tinsel glitters I bought, most of which bled in polish. I've been surprised by some store glitters before though- you just never know by looking at the package.
