Shot this a few days ago...got her in to practice on (so to speak) and was working with lighting, etc....I tried white seamless but I could not get much reflection from it...black ( or anything dark ) seems to work best...
Any suggestions on lighting, etc.....I have a paid shoot coming very soon and may need to work on this more....

Use black plex and you can use whatever color seamless you want and get a great reflection. If you want the plex and the BG to seamlessly merge you're pretty much limited to what you have now.

Try black plex and a vivid color BG. Put an accent light behind the model pointing at the BG with a gel the same color as the BG, and have the light either grid spotted or barndoored so it quickly falls to black just past the model's reflection. That technique provides a pretty nice look.

Good luck.
