Should be called the "Jewel-tone Set" Mar 10, 2011
By Claire Jordan
"Filmmaker - "The Baroness of New Orleans" to be released in 2013"
Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/RR37G7KC6V5AJ If you are looking for minutely different shades of pink or teal, this glitter set is for you. The quality of this glitter is superior and a little goes a long way, but I ended up spending a bunch of money supplementing the set with colors I felt should have been included. I would gladly trade a few of those almost-the-same-shades of lavender, gold or light blue for a few solid, deep shades - a rich purple or an indigo blue, for instance.
I show the glitter set (with the exception of Onyx which I used up) in this video, I also added a better photo of the set to the product description (back up at the top left of the product page) so you can better see the colors that are included. I still would have purchased it if I had known there was no strong blue or purple (there is a nice solid red, though,) but I would have made other arrangements to supplement those colors.
If you're curious about the Muses Parade shown in the video (the best of all of the Mardi Gras parades - imho) you can go to my youtube page at youtube dot com/user/acityoffriends

Glitter is a lifestyle choice Feb 03, 2010
By Shala Kerrigan
I have a lot of glitter, different brands and types, but the ones I always go back are the Martha Stewart glitters. Her fine glitters are very fine and very shiny and come in a bunch of gorgeous colors taking a palette from nature, from gemstones and from metals.
This set is full of gorgeous colors and the pictures don't do it justice. The shades aren't primary school type colors. These glitters are more grown up colors that work very well in touches on projects.
A little goes a very long way. In fact, maybe too far.
The pretty fairy wands I made this summer led to 3 months of the occasional glimmer of her very silver sterling shade on my husband's clothes.
When my daughter and I covered cardboard shapes with her peridot glitter (a gorgeous shade of light olive green) for tree ornaments, enough shook off that glitter wound up all over the place.
I don't dust. I glitter. There is an ambient level of glitter in my home that winds up on everything. It doesn't bother me much, but glitter crafting does make glitter a lifestyle choice, you'll have to live with it forever. My husband's co-workers tease him about the occasional glimmer on his cheek. He's gotten to where he flinches every time he sees the glue come out just in case I'm planning to glitter. I tell him it's a craft transmitted disease. He wants a vaccine.
Martha Stewart glitter works wonderfully for glitter stenciling, accents on fingernails, paper crafting and so far everything else I've done with it.

Great glitter and nice sized set Oct 26, 2009
By S. Mulkey
A little goes a long way so you won't have to worry about running out of any of the colors for a long time. Only complaint is that they should have made these in screw tops. My son was trying to open the shaker part and instead pulled the whole top of, thus spilling glitter everywhere (huge mess). Not a big deal if you are an adult, but for kids you will have to watch them carefully. Great color selection and excellent quality fine glitter.

Same as Martha Stewart item from Amazon Jul 26, 2011
By L. Reinhart
Your customers should know that this item is identical to the one Amazon sells directly, but this one is priced much higher. Buy the Martha Stewart Glitter collection directly from Amazon and save almost $9.00.

Glitter... so much glitter! Oct 30, 2011
I really really love this glitter. The colors are all so beautiful and very useable. I also love that it is superfine so works well for applications like glitter nails. Just paint your nails with top coat or any clear polish, shake on some glitter, and top with a few more clear coats and you've got yourself glitter nails! With 24 colors, you have an almost endless variety.
