Shooting Star is a fine silver glitter that has a rainbow reflective effect under light. Depending on the light angle and intensity, you can expect to see all the bright color hues. When the glitter is scarcely applied it loses its silver tone and what can be seen is a variety of colorful reflections. As the glitter thickens it starts to appear more silver while retaining its reflective properties. The glitter appears more silver over a black background and the fine particles are easier to see with the naked eye. A white background results in the softer colors in the glitter to become more visible.
