Powder coat touch up

Any ideas on touching up the black rims on my sprint. I'm assuming its powder coat. I don't need perfection, just want to cover some of the chips so you can't tell from 5 feet away. I'll get them fully re-coated when I re-do the paint in a couple years.

Cool, Thanks guys.

Come to think of it, I do have a bottle of the black touch up and clear coat for the plastics so I'm guessing that would work just as well. I didn't think of it until you mentioned nail polish.
