    smooth vs slick

    please, are these adjectives synonyms?

    does a ''slick surface'' mean a very even surface, flawless and with no lumps? can I say that a mirror has a ''slick surface''? can I say that it also have a ''smooth surface''?

    thanks.

    Re: smooth vs slick

    "Slick" generally means smooth, wet, and slippery, so it is not suitable to describe a mirror surface, which is hard and smooth.
