As already said - no rules, but when working with multi layers it can help to make inner layers less bold - either patterned or pale colors or both so you can see them but also still see the top/bottom.

Also to make pads, tracks and copper all variations of the colour.

If you are able to, also make power & gnd pads & tracks separate colours.
