Glitter Glitter Everywhere

I began my shop a few years ago after I found myself frustrated as I tried to find supplies to make my own nail polishes. I bought so many glitters that just melted and turned my polishes into chunky brown messes. The more I looked for resources the more I found other businesses and crafters were having the same problem. And so I set out to find good manufacturers that were making cool glitters that would allow me to place orders and brought all of my dope findings here to Etsy to share with y'all.

I hope you all enjoy the many glitters and supplies I've sourced for the shop when making all your polishes, slimes, acrylic nail designs and everything else! Have any awesome pics to share of what you've made? Send em my way, I'd love to see!

Additional policies and FAQs
Please contact me if you have any questions about an item I have listed. In some cases additional quantities of an item can be provided.

I test most, but not all, of the glitters that I carry in the base that I have available in the shop. Neon glitters are NOT considered to be solvent resistant by any of the manufacturers I use. While this is true, some perform better in different bases than others. Many neon glitters do indeed bleed, I have deduced this to be true especially of those used in TKB's glamour base though I have no first hand knowledge of their base, only what I have been told by others. Some holographic glitters also bleed in various bases. It is up to you to test your glitters in the base of your choosing as I can not guarantee how each and every glitter will perform in the many bases available to nail polish makers. If you are concerned about how a glitter may perform in your particular base please ask to order a sample size beforehand. If you order a larger size than that and are unhappy with the performance of a particular glitter you are free to send it back, at your own expense, to receive a refund for any unused portion, please send me a convo beforehand though so I know to expect it.

I hope you enjoy your shopping experience here at BoroughBabeSupply.

Frequently asked questions

Wholesale availability

Items are available in bulk, just send me a message asking for pricing.

What's the difference between 1 fl oz and 1 oz? Why are your glitters more $?

Thanks for asking! So my glitter is ACTUALLY CHEAPER than glitters that you see that come in 1 fl oz. How is that? Fluid ounces are measured by volume, NOT WEIGHT. 1 fl oz in actual weight is actually about 1/2 oz, or 14.1 grams. So when you buy an oz (28.3 grams) by actual weight you actually save money because the cost is less per gram. You'd have to spend about $8 in other shops to get the same amount of glitter that I offer for $5.50-6 for squares, hex, fiber and star glitters.

Can I use your glitters in resin to make jewelry or in acrylic for nails?

Yes, absolutely! My glitters are great for this and many other things!

Which glitters can I use for slime?

Every glitter available in my shop can be used for slime! That means both the solvent resistant and non-solvent resistant glitters can be used in your slime creations. The solvent resistant ones will not tint your slime a different color, whereas the other glitters (unless they are silver) may add a color to your slime. Because of this I don't recommend adding different color glitters that are not solvent resistant to a single batch of slime, might not know what color you'll get.

How do I know if a glitter is solvent resistant?

It should say in the listing. No neon glitter is considered solvent resistant by the manufacturer but I have found many do work well in nail polish without bleeding, I'll usually have a note in the ones that do.

What is solvent resistant glitter?

Solvent resistant glitter is glitter that resists bleeding and curling in solvents like nail polish. They can be used in pretty much every kind of craft you might want to make. They can even be used in your slimes and WILL NOT change the color of them! Now if you are making a clear slime it may look like the slime has taken on the dominant color glitter you added in but that's just because of the light reflecting off the glitter.

How do I make glitter nail polish?

First thing you need is glitter nail polish suspension base. While I don't currently carry this in the shop there are many places online you can purchase it from. If you don't want to buy it online you can pick up inexpensive simple glitter polish from Wet n Wild and other drug store brands.
Mix your polish in a container, pouring in the suspension base first and then small amounts of pigment or other polishes until you achieve the color you like. Remember not to put too much color or you will mask the glitter!
Next mix in the glitters you want, usually a small amount-usually no more than 1/2 tsp per bottle is good.
Pour your polish into a nail polish bottle along with 1-2 agitators and shake.
Congrats now you have a custom polish!

Can I order a custom glitter mix?

Yes! I ask that you get 1/2 oz $6, or 1 oz $11 minimum. If you want a lb of a custom mix the cost would be $90. Why so much? It takes a lot of time for me to find all the glitters and mix them up into something nice.

Can I get sample sizes?

Yes! Most samples are $1 or $1.50 depending on the shape and come as 1/2 tbsp in a plastic baggie.
