機械は真っ黒で、つややかに誇らしそうに光っていた.

Official transation: the jet black device shone with a proud gloss.

I'm a bit lost here. Does both the ni after つややか and 誇らしそう turn both these words into adverbs.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, に is indeed used for turning both な-adjectives into adverbs here (since they are modifying a verb rather than a noun).
