How do I get my color flow icing to be shiny?  It seems to be more matte.

You could try adding a bit of light corn syrup to your icing.  I like to place my wet cookies in front of a fan, that helps give the cookies a nice shiny appearance.  I got both of these tips from Sweet Sugarbelle.  She is an amazing cookie designer.

If you dry the surface under a gooseneck lamp [40-60 watt bulb], it will be very shiny.
