The flame test can be very accurate when it comes to distinguishing different types of metals through the colour they burn however if the metal/solution burned is mixed with other substances the colour might not show and therefore you wouldnt be able to identify the metal. Also, some flames may look very alike.

Not very. It's extremely subjective.
