Silver Shimmer is an extremely varied glitter when it comes to flake shape and size. It has large chunky hexagonal flakes, smaller but still chunky diamond-shaped flakes, small fine circular flakes, and fine dust-like flakes. Clustered together this glitter has a silvering effect but each piece can reflect any “rainbow” color depending on light angle. It is fairly consistent over dark and light backgrounds, however, the small dust-like flakes are easily more visible over a dark background. The reflected hues of these flakes are rich in color.
