What paint do you use in painting the Green on the upper portion of aftermarket headlamp lens such as McBeth?

Warren

Have used just rattle can Forest green on the inside upper, masking to be sure just the eyebrow is green. Clean glass well with lacquer thinner.

Then when dry, coat the green with white spray paint , keeping masking tape on from the green. The white over green is original and acts to reflect all the illumination of the head lamp bulb out the lens!
