I have a super-easy trick to share with you today: how to prevent glitter from falling off just about anything — from purses, to shoes, to decorations, to beauty product packaging!
It all began with this adorable little set of lip balms I received as a Christmas gift. I love lip balms, and this cute packaging plus the array of pretty colors and flavors had me oohing and aahing!
Until I realized that this was happening:
And there was one more problem:
The glitter was also rubbing off and sticking to the actual lip balm. And “glittered lips” is not a look I’m going for, although back in the ’80s this would have been very cool!
Time for my super-easy solution to prevent glitter from falling off!
Sparkle Mod Podge!
Yes, Mod Podge comes in an awesome sparkle formula, with glitter embedded in it, which you can see above in my extreme close-up shot of my little paint brush.
Simply brush on two coats of Sparkle Mod Podge (let dry in between coats) and then let dry and cure for at least 24 hours. (I let mine cure for 48 to 72 hours before using, just to be extra sure!)
The Sparkle Mod Podge doesn’t dull the existing glitter at all while it seals the glitter in.
Everything still sparkles and shines!
And most importantly? This:
No more glitter on my hands, in my purse, or anywhere else except where I want it to be!
Aren’t these lip balms aDORable?
So. Try Sparkle Mod Podge to prevent glitter from falling off your things. It’s much easier to use than spray sealants!
Plus it has glitter in it! Win-Win!
Yours in glitter . . .
