+1. I also use clear nail polish on my bike, but it is mostly a commuter. Allows me to keep an eye on the chipped spots. Keeps that used look that deters thieves too...This said, I sometimes consider getting something to really touch it up nicer...those paint pens from the hobby shop might be a good choice. I'm just not very skilled with those little brushes.
