Question Blue Metalcast on lights

So I remember a little while back, somebody panited their tails with blue metalcast paint and it made them a type of purple/black where the reverse lights turned out simply blue. I was wondering if you guys think it would look ricey to do the headlights with all blue (chrome lights). Maybe somebodys done it? Pics?

I actually don't know how to answer this. When the taillight pics were posted I thought it wouldn't look good but to my surprise I liked it. So I don't know how this would turn out on headlights.

I think it would work...But do you really care what other people think as far as it being "ricey"? do it because you like it not because everyone else does.

Yeah I also would like an answer for tht. But i didn't know if the thinner would take it off because I wouldn't want to just trash them if they turned out horrible. Maybe someone could photoshop it with a bluish tint?
