Shiny is a word that is used as an adjective for something that is bright and smooth or something that reflects light. The word is one of the most common in the English language and you can come across it in day-to-day conversation very often. The following sentence can help you understand the meaning of the word and also its use when the context arises: I was just amazed to look at her 'shiny' black hair. The above mentioned sentence says that the girl's hair was so bright that it reflected light and that made the person gazing at her.

The word is a derivative of the word shine which conveys the idea of producing or reflecting light and has its uses in some phrases also; you can create the phrase 'shine through something' for something that is easy to be noticed.
