Best Pearlescent Combinations?


electroleum

Recommended Posts

Once the High Life update is released, I'll be buying/modding quite a few vehicles. Some of which I'd like to add some metallic/pearlescent paint to.

I've got an Enus Super Diamond that has a deep blue metallic paint with a pink pearlescent to make it a pinky purple colour, but that's the only time I've dabbled with pearlescent.

 

What combinations do you guys & gals like? Photos of said combinations would also be awesome if you have 'em.

Usually anything with white pearlescent to make it look shinier (Except if you already painted your car white of course because it won't make any difference)

A dark green with a yellow pearl looks pretty good. I like it on my Entity. (No pics of it, but here's my Oracle)

I also just did Midnight Purple with Hot Pink Pearl on my Manana. This turned out really nicely.

Any combination of a dark color with a lighter pearl will make a nice contrast.

I have Sea Green metallic with Ultra Blue pearlescent on my Intruder. I really love it; gives it a really deep, beautiful aqua color that changes a bit in light. Works really nicely with the curves on this car (especially the hood).

Green with yellow pearl gives a nice bright neon green.

 

Matte black with anything bright looks good.

 

Also mix blue with light blue or green with light green to give a mettalic flake style paint.

I believe I put a black matte with dark blue pearlescent, or maybe the other way around.

 

-awesome color on rebel-

Mine is pretty much the same but i like to use just "Blue" or "Ultra Blue" Ultra Blue is a little bit brighter but looks great in the sun

Has anyone every made a full list to show the difference color combos?

 

It'd be great if someone did so we didn't waste money looking for a combo and finding one only to drive out and find it looks horrible

Midnight Silver as a primary...then play around with the colors....I have Midnight Silver with a dark red pearlescent, and I think it looks f*ckin amazing.

I get ideas from here i still add my own touch them. Im not affiliated with them they just have nice ass paintjobs on there.

Interesting site, however it looks like a lot of those were created with some sort of colour hack (PS3 I'm assuming)?

i think that there are crews which have a colour that isnt from the standard list. ie. crew colour is any hex colour instead of the however many colours options there are in LSC. join certain crew, use crew colour on car, leave crew.

i like secondary colour cars with black metallic and frost white pearlscent and Red metallic secondary colour with red rims (my rims are usually High End ones as most don't use too much colour on the rims)

Schafter Purple + Frost Pearl (Lighter purple)

 

Stone Silver + Ice White OR Cream Pearl (Gives it a champagne look)

 

Wine Red + Sienna Brown (Deep Burgundy-ish. It's weird and I like it)

 

Cabernet Red + Candy Red Pearl

I don't know why, I normally like to use Bright Orange as a pearlescent and any dark red color as a base.

 

Penumbra (Cabernet Red w/ Bright Orange pearlescent)

Penumbra_zpsd37f5372.jpg

 

Rapid GT with the same color combo as the Penumbra (Don't mind the rim color because I got rid of the car already)

RapidGTConv_zps517772a1.jpg

 

Sultan (Wine Red w/ Bright Orange pearlescent) Don't mind the rims on this also. I couldn't find a suitable rim color for at the time. Currently Frost White and Endo v2 wheels.
