What does it mean when it says a light bulb is frosted?

When a light bulb is frosted in finish, it is not clear and thus will cast a more subtle light. There are two ways a manufacturer can achieve a frosted finish. They will either use a phosphorus mixture along the inside of the glass or will use an etching technique to get the frosted finish.
