It's not correct. /Shiny/ refers to being bright with reflected light, 
but that light doesn't have to form an image. Here's an example of a 
shiny rock in which you can see no image:

Meanwhile, it can be possible to see images in glossy surfaces, but it's 
not required. Here's an example of a glossy bowl in which you can 
clearly see a reflection, but /shiny/ would definitely not be the first 
word I reached for to describe the bowl:

And here's an example of an obsidian ball which clearly shows 
reflections, but which I certainly wouldn't call shiny:
