It takes a loooooong time to dry, but it does work.
Keep in mind that it's splotchy though because it's a water based product.

Alcohol inks and StazOn ink work better, FWIW. If you use the alcohol ink mixatives, you can get a sparkle. You can also use Stickles on acrylic.
On this layout, I used alcohol inks on the "Life" and Stickles on the "Blur."

On this layout, I stamped with StazOn on the acrylic letters "So Cute" and sprayed with bronze Tattered Angels.

I've never heard of sanding acrylic...doesn't it just ruff it up?

Glimmer Glam or Glaze works better on acrylic than mist.

Yes, exactly - and the scratches help it actually show up against a background. I did this on the plastic arrow on the baseball layout in this set (page in the upper-right corner):
