Touching up curb rash on OEM 17" Style 44's?

Does anyone know if it's possible to slightly touch-up some curb rash on the 17" style 44's. The lip on these things and the color make them especially susceptible to rashing.

I don't really care if they'll look like brand new again, and I'm not really interested in refinishing the whole wheel.

Ideally, all I want to do is get some touch-up paint and dab in some spots where the paint is causing severe off-coloring.

Anyone have a source for paint that will work and match the OEM style 44 color? I'm thinking a little bottle like nail polish would be perfect.
