Paint the lens barrel

I had a few lens with point loss on the barrel. I am just wondering anyone tried to paint or touch-up the lens (black) and what kind of paint and process you used.

If it's a touch up I'd possibly look at nailpolish, but if it needs anything more than a touchup I'd just leave it alone.

Make sure that you don't go anywhere near a moving part
