Most adhesives dry clear. The difference is a shiny finish or mat. If the adhesive is "milky white" it tends to dry with a "matte" finish. If it is clear chances are it will dry shiny. I prefer Mono Multi and Mono Aqua. You'll want use the clear - shiny for glitter it maintains the most luster. Oh, by the way if you ever come across "glitter grabbers" from the Magic Mesh company. They are absolutely wonderful.
