Question Touch up paints from handaaccessories.com

I would like to order touch up paint (magnesium metallic) to repaint a very small part of the rear bumper where I hit another cars bumper when I backed up. Its a small bit of paint thats been scraped off. Which touch up paint works better, the one that comes from honda in the nail polish bottle or the non-honda PPG paint pen?

I have the honda nail polish bottle paint but its been a real pain to use before. It gets pretty messy with the brush and is too gummy. Is the paint pen better?

rckdrmr is on a distinguished road
www.paintscratch.com a friend of mine used one of these paint pens and it matched very well, considering the color was gold metallic. matching metallic paint won't be perfect, but i was surprised that these pens matched pretty frickin' close.

HD~Silverado is an unknown quantity at this point
After almost 50 000 kms of almost pure highway driving my Civic that I bought new has a few nicks in the paint, moslty on the hood from being stuck behind semi's. Some of them are pretty deep, anything special I need to do to fix these?

I just placed an order for the paint pen kit from paintscratch.com. I will see how well this works when I get it.

Clean it out completely, make sure it is totally dry, if you have waxed the car since you got the chip you may want to use a clay bar also. Use thin layers letting it dry about 5-10 minutes inbetween. If you just glob it on, it will never dry and will flake off. That should do it.
