Rudolph and a question....

Evening Everyone,

I hope you are all well and not too wet if you have had rain like we have the last 2 days!!! Its been downpour after downpour here!!!  
 So here is Rudolph and my question is.... I popped Acrylic Gloss on his nose to make it shiney and its made the red more of an orangy colour. You cant see it too much in this but its definitely a few shades lighter. It doesn't change if I use my sakura gloss pen but I really wanted a very glossy nose!!!
