One of the nice friendly folks over at warpshadow directed me to the Daler Rowney webiste. Is this what you were thinking of, Jarrett? In any case, it looks like the quick, easy iridescence I'm looking for.

Be careful wiht some of those paints, they often times paint up really thick and lose all the detail.

It's along the same lines. What I was thinking of was Krylon Mystique.

Mind you I've got no personal experience with the product

I tried the krylon mystique and it won't work. It only works well on large flat surfaces (like model cars or even real cars). Minis have too many curves, breaks, details etc.

If you're still looking, vallejo has an irridescent line including a mix in for custom work. Haven't played with it, but I strongly suspect it's your best bet.
