You can use 2 different clear coats. In that picture it loos like they put a gloss clear coat over the flat paint. See how the light reflects off of it? Flat paint doesnt do that.

You can do that but make sure you spray the same amount on glass and satin or it will have an edge in the paint.

See the black stripe between the white and gray in the pic? That's because there's an edge and the stripe covers it up.
