If glazed tile and not stone, not much you can do, nail polish, grout, whatever, but you will see it.

Unfortunately, there's no was to restore or repair the baked-on glaze on a ceramic tile. That shine is a result of the tiles being heated until the colored pigments melted and fused with the clay body. Just have to live with it =)
