Who doesn’t love a sparkle?
The Kirakira+ app adds actual sparkles to videos as you’re taking them. But, while it’s great for taking videos of objects, it’s not all that marvelous for taking selfies. The app—which has been around since 2015—went viral during fashion week in London and New York as fashionistas posted their shiny, sparkly creations. Instagram’s head of fashion Eva Chen went to town with Kirakira+ during London fashion week, which drew many Instagrammers’ attention to the app.
So, how exactly does the app work?
Available for 99p in the App Store, Kirakira+ App is pretty straightforward to use. Once downloaded, open up the app, swipe the screen to pick a filter, and tap the red button to film something.
I tried out the app to see just how sparkly my world could become. And, there was some good news and bad news. I ventured out of doors to a nearby park to see what could—and could not—become sparkly.
Everything is better with sparkles. There’s an app that makes everything — and I really do mean everything — glitter and shine.
