Crystal Shimmer is a collection of striking colours that is an evolutionary step to the Aurora Borealis AB crystals. Built on the design of the AB effect, each crystal shimmers with three shades of a single colour creating a multi coloured brilliance.
'The Crystal Shimmer Effect brings an extra dimension of sparkle adding more depth and beauty to any garment’ Joseph Suttle, Couture Designer
They also harmonize brilliantly with the recently launched DeLite LaquerPRO Effect Crystals
Our couture designers at Chrisanne Clover love using the Crystal Shimmers in their designs and use them to shade with tones including a colour and colour AB. Talking with our designers Joseph, Kushy and Phoebe here is why they love designing with Crystal Shimmer and what colours they like combining them with...
‘My absolute favourite shimmer colour is Crystal Shimmer. It looks very mystical, especially when paired with its jewel crystal counterparts and Light Grey DeLite. I also love using Cobalt Shimmer in shading with blue tones. It is a very strong colour and a little goes a long way.’ Joseph, Couture Designer
‘I love Light Sapphire Shimmer. The colour adds more depth with blue toned shading and in contrast shading too. It is such a versatile colour and really adds such a beautiful sparkle’ Phoebe, Couture Designer
‘I love Silk Shimmer, Crystal Shimmer, Cobalt Shimmer... Actually, I like them all! They are so versatile! A dress I have designed BDD420NN shows my love for them very well!

What advice would you give to our customers who are new to using Crystal Shimmer?
‘A little goes a long way. Don’t be scared to use them though! Start by mixing them in with their self-colour counterparts (fuchsia with fuchsia shimmer etc) to get a feel for them if they’re nervous. If they want more sparkle it’s a great way to go without having to constantly use AB which for some customers can be too much of a contrast.’ Joseph
