I've not used nail polish on my T, but I did use it on my black Jeep CJ-5 in the 80's...always getting scratched in the woods....living in the rust belt, u wanted to keep on top of such things...Held up as well or better than the factory finish!!

I was recommended testers model paint. I bought some and touched up some spots that were inconspicuous just in case and I was very surprised it works great. Best to take it slow and just do very light coats with a quality fine brush. For chips a tooth pick works just dap a little on let it kinda pool in the chip let it dry and repeat till the chip is filled.

I use the oil based black marker with a spring loaded felt tip. Pushing on the tip delivers paint to the felt. This would be the one with the aluminum body covered with a shrink label. The markers last a long time and are perfect for a quick touch up at a show. The paint is thin enough to not build up and leave a raised repair.

Some of the area craft stores carry these. A fellow car owner gave me one years ago and I've been happy with the results.

I haven't used this particular brand but it's an example of what I use. http://www.michaels.com/extra-fine-tip-multisurface-premium-paint-pen-by-craft-s mart/M10426707.html?dwvar_M10426707_color=Black#start=2

Any kind of paint will work for small chips. Don't have it to thin, it will run and not cover very well. I use a paper match stick, just throw it away when done. Metallic colors don't match very good but that's not a problem with a T.
