I'm always wary of metallic touch-up paint, but I think you have a good chance for a decent match with the rattlecan.

It takes some work, but those aren't bad for thin scratches.

yea this wasn't a thin scratch on my truck.
it was a clean chip, down to the metal on my hood. but no visible scratch on the metal.
i just globbed the nail polish touch up paint on it. and it looked horrible. haha
i shoulda just kept it with the chip
