I'm just curious...is there a way to make your buttercream shiny? After frosting my cupcakes and storing it in the refrig. they have lost their "sheen." Is there a way to make it glossy?

Thanks for the pearl dust tip. I will purchase some tonight. Do you find white or silver more versatile? Do they make translucent? Also are there any other options for getting buttercream less matted looking?
