What is solvent resistant?
Solvent resistant glitter is almost always made from polyester film particles that can withstand solvents and high heat temperatures. These glitters can be placed directly into nail lacquers / solvents without the color bleeding or glitter particles melting. Solvent Resistant glitters are perfect for creating your own glitter nail polish, mixing with acrylics and gel, and many more glitter ideas!
Solvency in each glitter varies depending on the polish formula being used please do your own testing before making polishes
Do i need to test my solvent resistant glitters ?
Yes! This is highly recommended All nail lacquers / solvent are not a like! When creating glitter nail polish, suspension base polish is made specifically for glitter and is always the best choice. Using a suspension base polish is the best way to avoid any incompatibility with solvent resistant glitters. First time use with any new nail polish or glitter needs to be tested. Testing can take up to 30 days to see if there is any color bleeding or dissolving of the glitter particles.
NOTE: made2glitter will not be responsible for the loss of materials or money as a result of combining our solvent resistant glitters with incompatible nail polish. Please be sure to test!

How is glitter weight calculated?
Due to the size ,the more dense the glitter the more it weighs out. For example the chunkier hexies will slightly weigh less. As the glitters get thinner and finer in size, the heavier it weighs. However all grams are weighed pretty aproximate and weighed accordingly. The chunkier glitters are weighed by volume in teaspoons ,Tablespoons and stated as ounces by volume because they take up more room in the bags.
Weight Vs By Volume
Please read all descriptions carefully.
By Volume By weight
1/2 oz=1Tbsp 14g
and so on.......
Measurements by volume means we are using Spoonfuls. If description reads ounces by volume ,your glitter is not weighed, it is measured by the Tablespoon.
If the description does not say by volume ,this means we are weighing your ounce and you will get it in grams
EX # 1 1/2 oz by volume, (means 1 Tbsp)
EX #2 1/2 oz bag (Means 14g)
