Mums are obsessed with this £5 glitter paint from B&Q, and it comes in gold, silver and purple

THE festive season is almost upon us and we can barely contain our excitement over the prospect of wearing glitter every single day.

But it turns out - sparkles don't only have to be for Christmas jumpers and festive manicures.

Mums have been obsessing over the purse-friendly paint on the American Facebook page I Need This In My Life.

Sharing a photo of rooms decorated with layers of sparkly paint, one user wrote: "I need this!!! Those glitter walls."

What's more, the glittery paint is available in silver, gold and purple too - and mums are going wild for it.

 According to the product description, the special effect paint gives a "durable and long-lasting glitter effect finish on a range of surfaces".

And where some mums have built up layers of the paint to get a statement sparkly wall in their homes, others have applied it over a grey base coat.

Sharing a photo of her own sparkly paint feature, one mum replied: "[It] has to have a base coat for sure - I did my ceiling fan."

Blown away with the sparkly results, one mum replied: "Looks fabulous, trying to work out where I can put mine!"

Another gushed: "I need the gold and purple! Sooo pretty."

Meanwhile, a third mum replied: "We're painting my daughter's whole room in glitter paint... I would do the whole house but I feel like that's a little too extra."
