Paint ideas for Trixy

Ok this is my first post so i wanted to make it good. Im new here and was wanting some opinions on some paint color ideas. I have always liked the satin and matte paint finishes so that is a must. I saw a satin white pearl camaro and that got this started. Ok so the firts is a satin black pearl and the second a satin white pearl what do you think? My car is pbm right now.

It's a custom Pearl white, just to give you some ideas on what white can look like.

Basically the same as laying a clear coat. But understand on mine, in bright sun light, you can't look directly at my car without sunglasses. It's honestly quite ridiculous.

I don't remember, I'll ask the guy who painted it when I get to the shop a little later.
