Chip in powdercoat... best way to fix?

the powdercoat chipped off on my frame at the bottombracket and bare metal is exposed. just to be sure, id like to throw something on there so that it wont develop rust later on. the bike is not put together yet so it would be relatively easy to fix the chip. any suggestions?

someone told me to use nailpolish... is there a better solution?

I use clear nail polish because it's less obtrusive than an imperfect color match.
