 Cheesy Thank you both.

@Antidigger The shine was from the gloss I sealed it with "pledge future shine" I've been looking for the best options to seal poly clay.So far this has been the best. No yellowing no stickiness or smell

Cute!  and makes a nice pendant.

Btw, Future (now renamed "Pledge with Future Shine"), Mop N Glo, and other cyanoacrylate floor polishes do give a tougher gloss finish on polymer clay than most other clear finishes.  But they're thin and don't have UV protection.

Clayers use clear polyurethane as probably the "best" finish as well.  It's thicker than Future, and is as tough or even tougher. The favorite brand of polyurethane (Varathane, indoor, gloss) is also UV resistant.  You might want to try some of that too to see what you think. 
(A couple of years ago, Polyform started selling the same polyurethane  under their Studio by Sculpey line--not regular Sculpey Glaze which is not as good, but it's a lot cheaper to just buy it in a hardware/home improvement store!).

If you want more info about Varathane, Future, and other clear finishes that can (and can't) be used on polymer clay, check out this page at my site:

The Varathane label has recently changed after being taken over by Rustoleum (probably just to to emphasize certain properties--i.e. "heavy use," etc, and they also have dropped the words "Diamond Elite").
Here's a pic of the newer label for the Indoor, Gloss version:
(...And here's the older label if you ever see that around--their Semi-Gloss and Matte versions are shown too:
