From Jaime Molina of Primary Materials Inc. on June 14, 2017:
A good option would be a metallic epoxy coat. This resin allows the installer to get as artistic with the colors as he or the architect wants. This surface can be topcoated with a good polyurea for an even more durable surface. Durable, artistic and not too expensive.

From Zenith Czora of Master Builders Solutions on June 14, 2017:
You may use tintable, solvent-based acrylic sealer to be tinted to any color of your choice for your first and second coat, then topcoat with polyaspartic clear coating.

From vijay shankar of level floorings on June 13, 2017:
Broadcast dry-shake colored floor hardeners at a dosage of 5 kg per sq m on  green concrete prior to floating and then polish the cured concrete surface to achieve excellent results.

Stain the concrete, then use lighting.
