I want to lay concrete in my basement using a glass admixture that will shine in the surface once it has been polished. Can anyone explain how to do this correctly?

RE: Need help with glass admixture
first, check out this article

small chips of glass are mixed into the cement and once dried, the cement is then polished.  The glass will then sparkle.
