I kinda have an idea of how to go about it, but any advice that you guys could give me would be awesome :D.

Thing is, metal paint has a tendency to be "black" or "grey" ish.. you may want to experiment with clear glitter. Paint on your white, then sprinkle on glitter while wet. Or paint white. Then add glitter to gloss varnish and paint on... or...
Just don't use your good brushes to experiment with.

I actually just bought Pearl White the other day, so I haven't had a chance to fiddle with it yet, but it really strikes me as a strong white with a slight metalic luster to it. I've obviously never tried this combo before, but I'd suggest trying something like building up to Pearl White with just the slightest touch of silver in it, and then slowly applying subtle glazes of light greens, pinks, and purples to the shadow areas to give that "pearlescence" effect.

I tend to mix the colour I want with the pearlescent silver. The mace and chainmail on the dwarf below were done using this technique and there's a bit more on the method I used at the bottom of this post.

I am actually going to go on a different direction and suggest that this would be a great opportunity for you to try a "pearl" version of NMM, using white, ghost white, maybe indigo, and a light khaki.

Also not sure you can get it anymore but Reaper did put out a Sophie Silver at last year's RCon (2011) that is very similar to Moon Silver.
ReaperCon goer since 2005!
