Which gel is best for glitter paste?

I have tried making glitter paste cones and am not having any luck. The gel is either too watery or way too sticky. In the case of the sticky gels, every time I paste an area and try to move to another spot, I get a sticky trickle like a spiders web attached from skin to cone.

If anyone makes glitter gels, can you please tell me which gel you use and the recipe? I live in America so I have access to anything that may be sold here.

Thanks in advance!

I got mine from a grocery store. For me, keeping the cone opening the smallest helped. The gel I have is also runny but after mixing a bunch of the glitter, it thickens up a bit. While you hunt for the best gel that works for you, may be this could help!

Frozen Stiff from Sally's Beauty Supply is a great base.

I really appreciate you help Catherine.

I visited Sally's beauty supply today for Frozen stiff. They did not have the gel but the hairspray....looked up on the net too.
Is there any other gel that is as good as that one? Sally's had an awesome collection of products. They suggested the Beyond The Zone Bada Bing Extreme Hold Gel

Has anybody tried it?

As long as you aren't allergic.

I've used L'Oreal studio mega hold. Cheap, easily available, and sticks well with either mica or glitter or both.
