What is Holographic Glitter?

Have you ever wondered just what exactly makes a "holographic glitter" holographic in the first place? Find out what makes this extremely popular type of glitter get it's awesome effect.

Holographic glitter is a type of decorative glitter that has a special iridescent or rainbow effect that mimics the appearance of a hologram. Unlike traditional glitter, which reflects light in a single color or direction, holographic glitter reflects light in a rainbow of colors, creating a dynamic and eye-catching effect.

Holographic glitter is made by coating PET flakes with a thin layer of a specialized material that diffracts light in different directions. This creates the rainbow effect that is characteristic of holographic glitter. The thickness of the coating and the angle of the light source can also affect the appearance of the glitter, resulting in different color shifts and patterns.

Holographic glitter is commonly used in various crafts, such as scrapbooking, card-making, and nail art, as well as in fashion and beauty products, such as clothing, accessories, and makeup. It comes in a variety of colors and sizes, and can be used alone or combined with other types of glitter to create unique and personalized effects.

It's worth noting that some holographic glitter products may contain microplastics, which can be harmful to the environment. If you're concerned about the environmental impact of glitter, you can look for biodegradable or eco-friendly options, or consider using other types of non-glittery decorative materials.
