It can look really good if you ask me. But it's easy to over do it. If you can, take a look at someones Civic or Prelude with stock Flamenco Black Pearl paint when it's clean. There's actually quite a bit of blue metallic flake in it & a little bit of red as well. I know the 96-00 LX and higher trim model Civics have this color available. Not to overboard but still adds that little sparkle.
