Get some super 77 spray adhesive and spray it on then sprinkle the glitter on it

I would guess that a solvent glue that melts the plastic and allows the glitter to become part of the surface would work.

Modge podge will just peel off when it dries. You could try a varnish.

First get a glue that actually sticks to the plastic in question.
Second, get a sealer that works with both the glue and the sealer.

There are too many options and combinations possible so you need to be far more specific here.
For ABS for example I would just use acetone, wet the surface and sprinkle the glitter on it, assuming the glitter is good quality and won't turn into a mess from the acetone vapor.
For the sealing I would dissolve clear ABS in acetone and brush or spray it over.
