Tinted corner headlights

i was planning on tinting the yellow corner lights on my titanium silver mettalic e90 myself.. i was thinking about taping off the surrounding areas and wetsanding down the corner yellow part with like a 400 grit sandpaper. then use a black transparent spray paint and keep layering till it turns as black as i want. than clear coating it with clear coat spray also.. anyone have any sugestions or tips of how this might turn out??

I've seen it done on taillights before, and looked ok. I'd be a little hesitant to do it until I'd already seen the completed project....being permanent and all.
